Las Vegas Shooting: 58 Dead at Mandalay Bay Hotel
When a gunman opened fire on a crowd gathered for a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip, he killed at least 58 people — making the Sunday night incident the deadliest mass shooting in the United States. A gunman, identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, fired from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on a crowd of 30,000 gathered on the Las Vegas Strip for the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival. At least 58 people were killed and more than 515 injured. US media reported that investigators have found no link to international terrorism, despite a claim from so-called Islamic State. Nevada has some of the least stringent gun laws in the United States. People are allowed to carry weapons and do not have to register themselves as a gun-owner.
