Over the weekend, a country concert venue was hosted at an outdoor venue known as the Las Vegas Village. It was located across from the famous Las Vegas Strip overlooking the Mandalay Bay and the Luxor hotels. But pandemonium struck when a gunman opened fire on the masses of people killing over 50 and wounding hundreds more.
The packed music festival was shot at by Stephen Paddock from his 32nd-floor room at the nearby Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.
It has been rumored that the 64-year-old allegedly killed himself before police stormed his room.
22,000 people were out on Route 91 celebrating the Harvest country music festival when gunshots could be heard emanating from a nearby hotel balcony.
According to the Amaq News Agency, an outlet linked to ISIS, Stephen Paddock had converted to Islam ‘months ago.’ Since then, ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack. But according to a statement from the FBI, they haven’t found any ties to terrorist groups, either domestic or international.
The ISIS news agency claimed the following unconfirmed report: ‘The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition.’ According to Reuters, two senior U.S government officials stated that Paddock’s name ‘was not on any database of suspected terrorists.’
So far, 50 people have been confirmed dead and another 406 others have been injured. However, police say that there was no indication of Paddock’s motive before this since he had no criminal record and was not thought to be connected to any militant group.
