It was on Sunday night in the United States of Las Vegas, several shooters attacked during a music festival at the Mandalay Bay Casino. It was an outdoor music concert that was going on and instantly 50 people were found shot dead. Death count later increased to 59 and over 500 people were found injured in this attack.
A total number of 42 guns were spotted in the suspected hotel room and the house of the shooter of Las Vegas, as said by the police.
Todd R. Fasulo, the Assistant Sheriff of the Las Vegas Police Department said; 23 guns have been in the Casino room and hotel of Mandalay Bay, where Stephen Paddock- the suspected shooter was found dead in his hotel room. Police believed that he probably took his own life.
A three-day music event was taking place and during the performance of singer Jason Aldean suddenly a terror of gunfire attacked the place. Soon the music stopped and victims bled to death on the ground. The concertgoers ducked for cover, ran, or screamed out of fear. Among the crowd one shouted; “stay down”, and another yelled, “get down”.
Among the ammunition and guns, at the shooter’s room, police also spotted some multiple loaded high-capacity magazines, high-powered rifles that were capable of penetrating the armors of police.
The Islamic state said that Mr. Paddock was one among their soldiers, though no evidence was provided of this claim. The F.B.I. stated that they found no evidence that Paddock had any ties with any of the International terrorist organizations. Mr. Paddock’s relatives said that he had shown any strong ideological or political beliefs in their action or influence with him so far.
President Trump, speaking at the White House denounced the shooting- as an act of pure evil. He also asked the country to come together to fight the evil and that no amount of violence can break the bond of the strength of unity.
