Reported earlier: The family of Shippensburg elementary wrestling coach Bill Wolfe is still seeking information about Wolfe's whereabouts amidst the chaos of a mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed at least 58 and injured hundreds more, Shippensburg varsity wrestling coach Tony Yaniello said by phone this afternoon.

Wolfe and his wife, Robyn, attended a Jason Aldean concert at the Route 91 Harvest Festival Sunday night when shots rang out and sent a crowd of over 20,000 running in all directions. The shooter, who was later identified as Stephen Paddock, 64, fired shots from a hotel room 32 floors above. Concert-goers and others on the Las Vegas strip were injured or killed from the gunshots, others in the chaos that followed.
