At least 50 killed, 200 injured

At least 50 people have been killed, including at least two police officers, and more than 200 injured after at least one gunman unloaded hundreds of rounds of ammo on a Las Vegas country music festival on Sunday night. There were 30,000 people in attendance at the event. The Strip has been completely shut down after the sniper opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest country music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino, located across a junction from the event. Police confirmed that one suspect had been killed, and said at 12:38am that they believed there were no more shooters. Reports of shootings at other locations were unfounded, police said. The shooter was killed after cops breached at the Mandalay Bay with explosives. Police are now looking for a woman named Marilou Danley, whom they believe may have information that could help their investigation.

Re: At least 50 killed, 200 injured

So sad, and even sadder that it will make absolutely no difference to the gun laws.

Re: At least 50 killed, 200 injured

i wonder if Nevada had not banned the multi clip assault rifles as some other States have..? Shades of Hungerford I am afraid.

It appears the shooter was a 64 year old man!

I doubt it. I have been switching across the news channels trying to find something new in this story; the USA stations are not mentioning changing the law, the British channels are speaking about it continuously.

There is something deep in the American psyche that guns satisfy; there have been approx 11,500 deaths by gun and 45,000 injury this year in USA and yet politicians can not bring themselves to do anything. An estimated 100 million guns in circulation, and whenever there is something like this, the gun sales go up as people get more frightened and want more weapons to defend themselves.

Re: At least 50 killed, 200 injured

The NRA is the most powerful political lobby group in the USA , they feed the American psyche for guns with huge funding of both politicians and advertising .

Drumpf is in their thrall by utilising their backing , even Obama could not move against their control of both administrative assemblies .

I can't stand Piers Morgan but this article was very interesting.
