Here we are again with America’s “worst” mass shooting.Which leaves 50 dead and almost 500 injured.
According to the Daily Mail, The shooting broke out on the final night of the three-day Route 91 Harvest festival, a sold-out event attended by 22,000 and featuring top acts such as Eric Church, Sam Hunt, and Jason Aldean.
Police say the shooter was 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock, a resident of nearby Mesquite, Nevada, who opened fire on the festival taking place at Las Vegas Village from a room across the street in the Mandalay Bay Hotel at 10:08pm.
Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said that his officers breached Paddock’s room on the 32nd floor and found Paddock dead inside, among an ‘arsenal’ of weapons. Lombardo said that Paddock shot himself dead.
Investigators are now raiding the home Paddock shared with Marilou Danley, his ‘companion’, who was initially called a person of interest. Police located Danley early Monday morning, and after speaking with her, no longer believe she was involved in the shooting.
Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said investigations are still ongoing and the authorities have not yet determined a motive for the shooting if there was one. He was not believed to be connected to any militant group, Lombardo said.
‘We have no idea what his belief system was,’ (We have no idea whether he was a Muslim or not.) he added.
