#BreakingNews Shooter in Las Vegas Kills 50 and Injures over 400 in Largest Mass Killing in US History at Night Concert
A Mass Shooting on Las Vegas Strip has Killed at least 50 people, and wounded over 400 hundred. Police say officers killed the gunman on 32nd floor of hotel across from outdoor concert. Police ID the person as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock; who has no history. Shooting erupted on last night at the Route 91 Harvest festival. This total makes it the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.
The outdoor area is known as Las Vegas Village, across the strip from the Mandalay Bay and the Luxor hotels. It's believed Paddock checked in as a hotel guest. Las Vegas police said 406 people were taken to local hospitals after the shooting.
The death toll surpassed the 49 from the Orlando nightclub shooting that also left dozens wounded in June 2016, when the 29-year-old gunman was shot and killed by police.
Las Vegas's casinos, nightclubs and shopping venues draw some 3.5 million visitors from around the world each year. The area was packed with visitors when the shooting broke out shortly after 10 p.m. local time.
U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted Monday he was offering his "warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!"
"We joined the masses of concertgoers, 30,000 people, so now you're starting to see people that are wounded and you're also seeing people getting trampled."
If you are in or near Las Vegas - please consider donating blood as there are over 400 in need. Please Pray for the victims and families...
