LAS VEGAS | The whereabouts of a Sutherland woman believed to be shot during a Sunday shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival remained unknown as of late Monday evening.

A Facebook post from the Sutherland Church of Christ Monday evening said Carly Kreibaum, of Sutherland, was shot Sunday evening while attending the Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. Kreibaum had attended the outdoor festival with two friends -- Alison Huckaby, of Sutherland, and Amy Douglas, of Cherokee.

The church held a community prayer gathering Monday evening, where between 50 and 60 community members gathered to pray for Kreibaum and her family. The Rev. John Erickson, pastor of the church, told The Journal Monday evening Kreibaum has a husband and two young children.

"We’re praying for news," Erickson said. "Especially for her husband and for the family, that they can hear soon."

Erickson said the two friends who were in Las Vegas with her are continuing to search for information.

"The girls that were with her did see her get shot, but beyond that we don’t know where she was taken or what shape she was in," Erickson said. "They found a friend with a car and have been going from hospital to hospital and to the police station. They have not been able to find out anything."

According to Kriebaum's Facebook page, she is a native of Sibley who graduated from Sibley-Ocheyedan High School and Wayne State College. A public photo on her timeline shows her and her two friends in front of the Venetian Las Vegas. It was posted just after 2 p.m. Sunday.
