A church is inviting members to come pray for the family of a Pennsylvania man killed in Sunday's mass shooting at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas.

Bill Wolfe Jr. and his wife, Robyn, were celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary when a man opened fire on the crowded concert grounds from an upper floor of a nearby casino hotel. Fifty-nine people were killed.

The Newburg First Church of God is holding a prayer meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday for the Wolfe family as well as the other victims.

Wolfe coached an elementary school wrestling team and a Little League team in Shippensburg, his hometown. Wolfe's father, Bill Wolfe Sr., was Shippensburg borough manager for many years.

Shippensburg is about 40 miles southwest of Harrisburg, the state capital.
