Las Vegas Strip Shooting: At Least 58 Dead, Suspect ID’d

Thousands of country music fans became witnesses or victims of the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history when a gunman unleashed “hundreds” of bullets into the Las Vegas Strip crowd Sunday night. At least 58 people were killed, Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Monday morning. A hailstorm of bullets and the subsequent stampede left more than 500 people injured, officials said. The crowd was watching a concert by country music superstar Jason Aldean, Lombardo said. The gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, was firing from the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay hotel, Lombardo said. Paddock apparently took his own life.

The Las Vegas Strip massacre has no known link to overseas terrorism or terror groups, a US official with knowledge of the case said. Separately, a woman described as a “person of interest” after the attack is not believed to be involved in the shooting, police said in a statement. “Marilou Danley is no longer being sought out as a person of interest,” the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said. “LVMPD detectives have made contact with her and do not believe she is involved with the shooting on the strip.” Updated as of 11:45 AM (EDT)  [Source: CNN News]
