Many come together for the route 91 Harvest Concert in Las Vegas for the past several years. This year in Las Vegas more than 22,000 were present during the last few minutes of the final performance for the night by Country music star Jason Aldean.
For what must have seemed like an eternity for those present at the event the gun shots continued. Gun shots lasted for 10-15 minutes. The gun shots blazed through the crowd, as several eye witnesses told news reporters it sounded like fireworks and a few thought there was a malfunction in the sound system.
The shooter, Stephen Paddock from Mesquite, Nevada was the shooter. This 64-year old white male was believed killed himself prior to police entry into the hotel room, which was on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel. Authorities at last count cite that more than 58 are dead and an around 515 injured people were taken to area hospitals. Stephen Paddock had more than 10 riffles.
President Trump spoke concerning the great tradgedy of the horrific events and the pure evil that this event was. The White House Press Secretary seemingly almost broke into tears while giving today’s press briefing. The White House calls for a time of mourning and not a time of political debtate.
This is a sad day for America and all involved. Let us set aside all differences and pray for victims, their families and all others on scene, Las Vegas, and America.
