Last night, the Jason Aldean concert was stopped in its tracks as gunfire erupted. Gunman, Stephen Craig Paddock opened fire at the Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest country music festival.
The bullets rained down from the 32 floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Two broken windows can be seen where the shooter discharged his weapon. When police breached the room, Paddock was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
According to the shooter’s brother, Eric Paddock, his brother must have “snapped.” He stated that there was “absolutely no indication he could do something like this,” and that Stephen had no political or religious affiliation.
So far 50 are reported dead and over 400 injured.
A young woman told an NBC affiliate that a woman pushed her way to the concert and told everyone in the area that they were going to “die tonight” before supposedly being escorted from the conference roughly 45 minutes before the shooting happened.
Stay tuned for updates as more information becomes available.
God Bless these people.
