Last night, the worst mass shooting in American history left more than 50 people dead and 200 wounded in Las Vegas. The Times of Israel reports that the attack was carried out from the Mandalay Bay Hotel on a country music concert going on below:
More than 50 people were killed and more than 200 were injured in a shooting Sunday night at a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip.
Las Vegas Metro Police Sheriff Joe Lombardo confirmed the casualty toll in a press conference.
The shooter, identified as Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on the concert from a window on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across Las Vegas Boulevard, Lombardo said.
It was the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
Police said Paddock, a resident of Mesquite, Nevada, was killed by officers and that despite eyewitness accounts to the contrary, there were no additional shooters.
“Reports on social media of multiple shooters or of a bomb threat are false,” Lombardo said, noting that police wouldn’t speculate as to a motive in the attack, which he described as a “lone wolf” shooting...
Our prayers go out for God's healing for all those injured in the attack, and for His comforting hand over the loved ones of those who lost their lives.
