THE SHOOTING IN LAS VEGAS, THE BLOODIEST IN THE HISTORY OF U.S.A.

An individual placed on the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel in the United States killed more than 50 people indiscriminately shooting with a rifle against audience in an outdoor country music concert, which was held down.

“At this moment, there are more than 50 dead and over 200 injured individuals,” the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said about the worst mass killings in history of the United States.

At a press conference, police chief Joe Lombardo said they have identified the alleged attacker as Stephen Paddock, 64, a local Las Vegas resident whose motives are now unknown.

“At this moment, we do not know what beliefs he had”, Lombardo said.

The attack took place on Sunday night, when a country music festival “Route 91 Harvest”, which lasted three days, was being celebrated next to Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.

What was supposed to be a night of joy, music and dance became a nightmare for the crowd at 10:08 p.m. (05.08 GMT on Monday), when the bursting of an assault rifle began.

At first, according to the witnesses, the shots were confused with the explosion of firecrackers, but little by little the panic was contagious among the attendants when they began to see people falling shot down by the guns.

The scene was picked up by numerous people who recorded the concert with their mobile phones: “Down, stay down”, you hear a woman in one of them, while another person shouts that what you have to do is run away.

The shooting and growing screams of concertgoers began around 10 pm local time while singer Jason Aldean was performing on the closing day of the country music festival.

Police thinks that they has already found the attacker’s companion, Marilou Danley, an Asian woman of 1,50 meters in height and 50 kilos of weight who traveled with him and who they want to interrogate about the case.

The authorities consider that the subject acted as a “lone wolf”.

My warmest condolences and sympathies for the victims and families of the terrible shooting Las Vegas. God bless you!” Trump wrote in his Twitter account. (October 2, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
