Days after a gunman opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers outside of the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas, killing 58 and wounding hundreds more, Jewish philanthropist and casino mogul Sheldon Adelson announced the formation of a $4 million relief fund for the victims of the largest mass shooting on American soil.

The fund will include donations from Adelson and his wife, Miriam, via the Adelson Family Foundation, as well as from the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, a casino and resort operating company founded by Sheldon Adelson, who currently serves as the company’s CEO.

Half of the money will be provided via the Las Vegas Sands Corporation’s charitable program, Sands Cares, while the remaining $2 million will be provided by the Adelson Family Foundation.

The joint venture offers, among other things, accommodations for shooting victims and their families, food and supplies for blood donors, and grief counseling.

Earlier this week, Adelson met with President Trump to discuss the massacre and ways to help the survivors of the attack.

The Las Vegas shooting surpassed the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting to become the deadliest mass shooting in American history.

One witness told KSNV-TV he believed there were multiple shooters, saying that hundreds of rounds had been fired at the audience.

"Clip after clip after clip after clip, bullets flying everywhere, everybody running. It was really bad."

Bullets were "ricocheting everywhere... they were firing from somewhere high and they were unloading clip after clip after clip… multiple shooters, has to be…[there were] hundreds of shots.”

Others told Fox News that they had seen a concertgoer shot in the head.

Police say that one suspect was shot and killed on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort, adding that no additional shooters are believed to be at large.
