BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
A man who grew up in Shafter was among those killed in Sunday night's mass shooting in Las Vegas.
Victor Link was killed by the gunman targeting the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, his sister told Eyewitness News.
Link no longer lived in Kern County -- he was living in San Clemente. But, he graduated from Shafter High School in 1980, his sister said.
At least 59 people were killed when a gunman perched on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel opened fire. Hundreds more were hurt.
