Deadliest Mass-Shooting In Modern U.S. History Leaves At Least 50 Dead, Over 200 Injured On Las Vegas Strip

Reported Shooting At Mandalay Bay In Las Vegas

A 64-year-old white, male gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel/casino during a Jason Aldean concert on the Las Vegas strip last night, killing at least 50 and wounding at least 200. The suspect has been killed.

This is the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. Jason Aldean was performing onstage at the Route 91 Harvest festival, a multi-stage, 3-day, outdoor country music show.

He and his band are safe.

Police say they have found person of interest Marilou Danley. She’s reported to be either the companion or roommate of the suspect.

And this captures some of the panic on the ground during the ordeal.

There is more intense, graphic, disturbing footage out there. I won’t post here because it’s already fucked up enough, but if you’re looking for it, you can find it.

There’s not much to say that hasn’t been said before. It takes a purely evil piece of shit to open fire on a massive crowd of not just innocent, but completely unarmed, unsuspecting people trying to enjoy their time away from the stresses of life.

We know very little about the suspect at this time, aside from the fact that he was a cowardice scumbag who horrifically changed hundreds (realistically thousands) of lives for absolutely no reason.

Stay safe folks. Prayers with Vegas, and let’s all take some solace in the fact that there will undoubtedly be dozens of stories rolling in of heroic goodness to prevail from this one massive act of evil.

There always are.
