(Shippensburg) -- A midstate church is inviting members to come pray for the family of a Shippensburg 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 he was one of 59 people killed when a man opened fire on the crowded concert grounds from an upper floor of a nearby casino hotel. He was among 59 people were killed during the attack.

The Newburg First Church of God is holding a prayer meeting at 7:00 p.m. today for the Wolfe family as well as the other victims.

He coached an elementary school wrestling team and a Little League team in Shippensburg, his hometown.

Wolfe's father, Bill Wolfe Sr., served as Shippensburg's borough manager for many years.
