Sunday night, a gunman using a rapid-fire machine gun killed over fifty people from his vantage point on the 32nd floor at a Las Vegas hotel while looking down at a huge outdoor concert outside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Country singer Jason Aldean was performing at a three-day country music event when this massacre occurred.

Thousands of people scattered as SWAT units located the gunman who was identified as 64 year old Stephen Paddock. According to the Daily Mail, “Police say they breached Paddock’s room and found him dead inside alongside an ‘arsenal’ of weapons.” More than 50 victims died, at least 200 others were wounded — and the numbers are sure to climb.  According to the New York Times, this is one of the deadliest mass shootings in United States history.

Paddock was a resident of Mesquite, Nevada.  Police had questioned his companion, whom they originally called a “person of interest.”  However, they no longer believe she was involved in the incident.

President Donald Trump tweeted his condolences.  “My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!”
