Details on the Las Vegas Shooting
Another horrific mass shooting has shaken this nation. The attack took place at the Route 91 Harvest festival, a country music concert held on the Las Vegas Strip, just after 10:00 P.M. (PST) on Sunday night. The concert was abruptly interrupted by the sound of gunfire which lasted for 10 to 15 minutes. The shooter, Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nevada, fired what appeared to be a fully automatic assault rifle into a crowd of about 22,000 people from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, several hundred feet from the concert grounds. Police believe that Paddock acted alone. The attack has claimed the lives of at least 59 people and injured more than 527 others, making it the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
