50 dead in Las Vegas shooting

At least 50 people have been killed and another 200 have been wounded in a mass shooting at a Las Vegas concert.

A gunman, named as 64-year-old local resident Stephen Paddock, opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel towards an open-air music festival.

He was shot dead by officers in the hotel where a number of guns were found.

The attack is the worst mass shooting in recent US history.

US President Donald Trump tweeted his “warmest condolences and sympathies” to the victims and their families, and called the shooting “terrible”.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo described the shooting as a “lone wolf” attack. He added that police were now confident they had located a woman, earlier named as Marilou Danley, who was suspected of travelling with the gunman before the attack.

Sheriff Lombardo said he was unable to give accurate details of dead and wounded, but confirmed two off-duty police officers were among those killed.

      I was being totally sarcastic. I have cats and dogs who eat sleep and play together.
      Humans are just sick and depraved.

      # America full of it. President calls NFL players protesting inequality and racial injustice to blacks SOB- just for a peaceful protest. White gun man kills 58 injures more than 515 in a single day and he have mental issues, acts of evil etc. white Americans talks about blk on blk crime, thugs in Chicago with a homicide rate of 717 for the year all sorts of names; while a white man just injured 515 ppl in the same day but now all the white racist silent. What’s that saying- don’t throw stones when they live in glass houses. Everybody a criminal and a terrorist except for them. Smdh

    A friend of mine when fist went to live in the USA said a buddy picked him up and the two were going to a party. He was asked “are you packing”, he said no and for what , man I don’t even like guns. His friend replied “you are now in a GUN COUNTRY, it says in the Constitution “every one has the right to bare arms” and they mean it so much that it is the 2nd amendment.

      Beats me why ordinary people are so fascinated with guns. For a number of years, I had the right to bear arms, in many a country. Today I do not want to see a firearm in any form.

    We are not too far from the USA. It now looks like many non-law abiding citizens in Barbados think that they have a right to bear arms/ carry a piece/ carry a trigger. Hearing automatic rifle fire is now the order of the day, or night. The question is what else have they got out there? And why are our supposed leaders pussyfooting over the gun/crime issue in Barbados?

    300 people were killed in the Tulsa Race Riots….. Over 100 killed in Rosewood…… etc….. Yet, this is classified as the most deadly shooting in American HIStory…. As terrible as this tragedy is, it is NOT the “most deadly mass murder in America.

      To add, 40 000 000 blacks in the Trans Atlantic slave trade. I tell you these people have no conscience (pineal) and can only see their pain, no one else’s suffering or strangulation. And still have blacks classified as 3/5 human in their Constitution.
