A 57-year-old woman who was injured in the2017 Las Vegas mass shooting has died, according to officials.

Kimberly Gervais of Mira Loma, California, suffered spinal injuries in the massacre and was recovering at a nursing facility, according to the San Bernardino County Coroner's Office.

An autopsy will determine her cause and manner of death.

Gervais could become the 59th person to die from the Oct. 1, 2017, mass shooting.

Fifty-eight people were murdered and hundreds of others were injured in what became the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.
