INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - A GoFundMe page for the victims of Sunday night's mass shooting in Las Vegas raised more than $2 million in less than a day since it was created.

At least 59 people were killed and more than 500 injured when a man opened fire on an outdoor music festival from a casino hotel window roughly 30 stories up.

Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commission Chair, set up the page to raise money "to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific Las Vegas mass shooting​." It was established with a $1 million goal. They hit $750,000 by 2 p.m. Eastern Time Monday.

As of 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday, the fund has reached $2.8 million from more than 30,000 donors, including a $400,000 donation from Stephen Cloobeck, founder of Diamond Resorts International, a time-share company in Las Vegas.
