  • Officers said Paddock was shot dead inside his hotel room alongside an 'arsenal' of weapons
  • Cops have located Marilou Danley, described as Paddock's 'companion' and roommate, for questioning, but say they don't believe she was involved in theshooting  
  • It's the deadliest shooting in U.S. history - eclipsing last year's massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida 

America is reeling from the worst mass shooting in its history after at least 50 people were killed and more than 200 wounded at a country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday night.

Police say the shooter was 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, a resident of nearby Mesquite, Nevada, who opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas Village from a room across the street in the Mandalay Bay Hotel shortly after 10pm.

Officers say Paddock was shot and killed after they breached a room in the hotel, where he had stashed an 'arsenal' of weapons used during the massacre.

Investigators are now raiding the Mesquite home he shared with Marilou Danley, described as his 'companion'. Police located Danley early Monday morning. They initially called her a person of interest, but now say they don't believe she was involved in the shooting.  

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said investigations are still ongoing and police have not yet determined a motive. 

President Donald Trump paid his respects on Monday morning after the shooting, writing on Twitter: 'My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!' 

Terrifying footage from the scene shows concert-goers reacting with confusion and then panic as the festival turned into a bloodbath around them. Video from close to the stage shows people hitting the floor as others crawl to safety or run for their lives. Audio from further back in the crowd captured several bursts of sustained automatic gunfire.

Witnesses said 'hundreds' of rounds of ammunition were emptied into the crowd, with Paddock stopping several times to reload as he carried out his massacre. Among those shot dead at the concert were two off-duty police officers. Attendees said a large number of law enforcement and military personnel had been attending the show. 

Two on-duty police officers who engaged the shooter have been hospitalized. One of the officers was critically injured, but is now in stable condition after undergoing surgery. The other officer suffered minor injuries. Neither have been identified.  All of the ambulances in the area were been deployed to the location, and victims taken to two hospitals.

 We try to piece shit together, to the best of our abilities; but we're not omniscient, by any means.

I am NOT a faithist, faith being belief in something which has NO evidence. Every religion there is or ever was anywhere is based on faith.

I'm not a big fan of beliefs. Every major religions' foundation has been based on a belief.

Just put on the brakes. Just because you don't have all the facts & are lacking a complete picture of some event doesn't mean you have to break down into a hysterical mess. Deep breath. Ground. Deep Breath Ground....(repeat)

I DO believe it was a false flag. However, I am considering if it was a hoax too, like so many others. If it was a hoax, then it was quite a piece of work.

I don't believe he killed anyone.

Comment by Citizen Quasar on October 3, 2017 at 9:23pm

I don't know. But the gobmit (Read: intelligence community) has pulled some humdingers. No one died at Sandy Hook. There is even a free book with that title by Jim Fetzer and it is available for free download off the internet & it lays out the proof. As for Las Vegas; well, until there is reason for suspicion, I am going with YES, many were killed. However, if the death certificates get sealed, this will make me, at a minimum, uncertain.

This latest mass shooting has all the marks of a false flag.

Exactly LP. I change my mind all the time. Everything's fluid in this world.
