An unspeakable massacre took place on a high floor of a Las Vegas hotel just yesterday. A gunman opened fire and unleashed a barrage of gun shooting killing 58 people, while 515 more are wounded. In fact, many of them are in a critical condition, as the officials reported. It is one of the worse, if not the worst mass shooting in modern US history. Authorities have identified the suspected gunman in the Sunday night shooting as Stephen Paddock, who is now reported as dead.
Everything begun shortly after 10 p.m., the gunman shot from the 32nd floor of the hotel, the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, spraying bullets into a crowd of about 22,000 people, as the officials reported. All the rest terrified survivors tried to find cover in order to avoid the spread of the bullets. In addition, an online video footage of the attack near the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, showed that the show of the singer Jason Aldean was interrupted by the sound of gunfire. The music stopped, and as victims fell bleeding, concertgoers screamed, ducked for cover, or ran.
Police found the gunman, whom they identified as Stephen Paddock, 64, dead in his room at the hotel, along with at least 10 rifles. Investigators were still combing through Mr. Paddock’s background and searching his home on Monday. The Islamic state took responsibility for the bloody incident, stating that Mr. Paddock was one of its soldiers, but did not provide any evidence of its claim. The F.B.I. said there is no evidence so far that Mr. Paddock had ties to any international terrorist organization. Just after the shooting act, President Trump, made a statement at the White House. He condemned it as an “act of evil” and called for the United States citizen to come together in these hard times.
