How to help victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting

How to help victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting How to help victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting

It's considered the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history. One gun shop owner in Utah stepped forward to say he sold Paddock a rifle earlier this year. Police believe a lone gunman-Stephen Paddock, age 64-was responsible for the Las Vegas shooting that also injured more than 400 people. The arsenal "was pretty well hidden", Titus said.

"I know this feeling of heartbreak and horror too well". He checked into the Mandalay Bay Hotel last Thursday and brought in bags of guns.

Investigators worked feverishly Tuesday to find out why a retired accountant gunned down at least 59 people and wounded over 500 others at an open-air concert in Las Vegas, raking the crowd with bullets from a 32nd-floor hotel room packed with weapons.

Of course, some of the media's caution is obviously warranted - you wouldn't want to make the same mistake the president did when he labeled the criminals behind a Philippines robbery "terrorists".

The first call by police has an officer reporting, "shots fired" and "sounded like an automatic firearm".

The presence of other hotel guests in the rooms surrounding Paddock's meant that police couldn't return fire from the ground, he explained.

"It's a little surprising that he could've hidden it well enough that when the maid service came in that they didn't see anything but I think this is all part of the investigatory process that they're going to have to really delve into". Trump wants to travel to Las Vegas this Wednesday to meet victims, relatives and first responders.

"Breach, breach, breach", and officer is heard saying.

Officials believe the shooter brought the weapons into the hotel room on his own and used "a device similar to a hammer" to smash the hotel room windows between him and the music festival. "Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?"

The man had also carefully prepared for his attack. At Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut, 26 people, including 20 children between the ages of six and seven, were tragically shot by 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who reportedly suffered from developmental and mental health problems.
