58 Dead, 515 Injured in Deadliest Mass Shooting in American History
58 people have been counted dead, with 515 injured in a number likely to grow in the deadliest mass shooting in American history. The details are still coming in, but we know the attack was perpetrated by Stephen Paddock, 64 from the 32nd floor of the Mandala Bay Resort and Casino Hotel at a country music festival below. This has been called the deadliest mass shooting in American history — only sixteen months are the shooting in Orlando, Florida and the Pulse Night Club.
Isis was quick to lay claim to the shooting, but this claim was dismissed by the FBI. There was an outpouring of support on social media for the victims, and conversations had about gun control, and how and where people can help. Here are some of the comments.
Here is the video of the shots breaking out at the concert. Warning, it is very difficult to watch.
