Ronnie Stanley: Tragedy in hometown of Las Vegas has been 'overwhelming'

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley woke up Monday to news about the mass shooting in his hometown of Las Vegas.

"It's been rough," Stanley said Wednesday. "Just trying to check in on my family and loved ones and close friends back home was kind of overwhelming."

Sunday's mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip has left at least 59 people dead and more than 500 injured.

That touched close to home for Stanley. He grew up in Las Vegas and was considered the top football prospect in Nevada when he graduated from high school there five years ago.
