NewsChannel 9 has confirmed that Chattanooga Rugby Club members are safe in Las Vegas after having to shelter in place for several hours after Sunday night’s shooting.

This news comes from Kelly Herd, the father of one of the players, Matthew Herd, who spoke with reporter Alex Jones on the phone.

The group was in the Luxor Hotel which was next door to the Mandalay Bay hotel, where police say a gunman opened fire from a room on the 32nd floor. The gunman turned one of his guns on himself when police broke down his door.

At least 50 people were killed in the attack, and more than 400 people were injured.

On the phone, Kelly Herd described it as a “pretty traumatizing experience” for all of the players, according to what his son told him.

Player Ethan Winel spoke with us on the phone as well:

He says, “We were scattered during the shooting and most of us had no battery on our phones but we are all safe. Been a chaotic night.”

He also says he slept on the floor of the lobby.

Earlier in the day, the Chattanooga Rugby Club played the Las Vegas Irish RFC (Rugby Football Club):

Once again, none of the Chattanooga Rugby Club players were hurt in the attack, and their lockdown was lifted mid-morning on Monday.
