DeMarco Murray donating $50K to Las Vegas shooting victims, police

DeMarco Murray has decided to give back to his hometown of Las Vegas after the horrific mass shooting that took place last week.

The Titans running back is donating $25,000 to the victims of the shooting, as well as another $25,000 to Las Vegas police, according to ESPN.com.

"When I heard about the terror and devastation in my hometown of Las Vegas, I couldn't believe it," Murray said. "I was shocked, sickened and scared for the families and friends of the victims. I want to help and do whatever I can to take away their pain from such a horrific experience.

"Las Vegas is a special city not just to me, my family and friends, but this whole world. It's a shame ... for the city to have to endure such an attack. I pray for the victims and their families and hope our great country can work diligently towards keeping our people safe and eliminate these kinds of attacks in the future."

Murray said Las Vegas will be on his mind when the Titans travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins Sunday.
