Anne Arundel County High School officials took to social media Monday and confirmed, Tina Frost, a 2008 graduate was among the 500+ people injured in the mass shooting: 

As you are all aware, a mass shooting took place last night in Las Vegas. One of our former students, Tina Frost, Class of 2008, was one of the people injured in the shooting. Tina was on the soccer team while at Arundel and was on the All-County team in 2007. Tina had surgery this morning and is currently in ICU in a coma and on a ventilator. She lost her right eye and they are unsure if she has sustained any brain damage. Her family has flown out to Las Vegas to be with her. Arundel High School will be collecting money for the family in their time of need. Please contact Mrs. Davenport with any questions. Or if you prefer, donate to this GoFundMe Account established for Tina and her family.

In an effort to offset medical costs, the family of Frost has created a Go Fund Me page.

"We are raising money to cover all expenses related to this tragic event such as traveling, food, hotels, missed work, and caring for Tina," said Mary Watson Moreland. 

Her father has also been posting updates on her condition to Facebook. 

Frost is listed as critically-stable and is expected to remain in intensive care for at least a week.
