Oklahoma woman shot in Las Vegas recovering

The Oklahoman's Josh Wallace reports:

Family members of a woman shot Sunday during a country music festival in Las Vegas said she’s set to undergo surgery Tuesday but that she’s in good spirits.

Shelby Perry, 22, of Beaver, and three friends were among the more than 22,000 people at a country music festival not far from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino where a 64-year-old man opened fire from the 32nd floor, killing nearly 60 people and wounding more than 500.

“The bullet went in her bicep and she’s got some shoulder injuries and I guess when she fell, she broke her collar bone also,” said Becky Howard, Perry’s cousin.
