A member of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority says the Oakland Raiders have settled on a date for the groundbreaking of its planned 65,000-seat domed football stadium.
The Raiders owner arranged to fly in about 30 firefighters, police officers and dispatchers from Las Vegas for Sunday’s Raiders-Los Angeles Chargers game at the Oakland Coliseum.
Half of the money will go to the Las Vegas Police Department and the other half will go to the victims of the families of last week’s mass shooting.
A moment of silence was held Thursday before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers faced the New England Patriots, an honorary gesture directed to the victims of last Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas.
The Raiders expressed and provided support Monday for those affected by Sunday night’s massacre across from Mandalay Bay.
