California woman Kimberly Gervais has become the 59th person to die from injuries sustained in the Las Vegas shooting massacre, a coroner confirmed in a statement on Monday.

Why it matters: The shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, which occurred when a gunman opened fire from his Mandalay Bay hotel room before killing himself, is the deadliest in modern U.S. history.

Fresno mass shooting: What we know so far

Police in Fresno, California, said at least four people were killed and six others wounded in a backyard shooting on Sunday evening, local news outlets first reported. "No suspect is in custody," AP reports.

Details: Fresno Police Lt. Bill Dooley said in an initial briefing that the suspect had entered the property in the city that's southeast of Sacramento and opened fire during a football watch party about 6 pm. Deputy Chief Michael Reid later told reporters that three people died at the home, where "at least 35 people" were present.
