50 Killed In Las Vegas Strip Shooting Rampage

At least 50 people were killed in a mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday night. According to CNN, 64 year old Stephen Paddock, who was identified as the gunman, fired from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel and later killed by police. A second suspect, Marilou Danley—who authorities believe was traveling with Paddock—was also located. 

The shooting began around 10:08 p.m. Sunday (1:08 a.m. ET Monday) during the Route 91 Harvest festival, according to Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo. Country music star Jason Aldean was performing at the time. 

“My Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight,” Aldean wrote in a statement posted to Instagram. “It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. #heartbroken#stopthehate.”
