Vegas shooting survivor killed in hit and run

A man who survived last month's Las Vegas gun massacre has been killed in a hit and run while hitchhiking.

Roy McClellan, who was caught up in the mass shooting that left 58 people dead at a concert, died on State Route 160 in Pahrump, around 50 miles west of Las Vegas.

His widow, Denise McClellan, said she was struggling to understand her 52-year-old husband's fate.

She told KSNV-TV: "This isn't what I wanted for him. I don't understand why he wasn't taken at the shooting, but a month later he was taken this way.

"I hope my husband found peace and he's safe now."

She said the shooting was "really messing with his head and he was going to therapy".

The Nevada Highway Patrol has said it is trying to trace the driver of a Chevrolet Camaro with damage to its front in the wake of the incident.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to support Mr McClellan's family – it has so far raised more than $2,400.
