The deadliest mass shooting happened in the history of Modern America on this Sunday night, at least 59 people were killed when a gunman went berserk and opened fire in a music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino on the Las Vegas strip. About 500 people were injured according to Las Vegas police the casualty figures keep rising. This was considered the biggest Mass killing as it had even more casualties than Pluse night club incident in Orlando in 2016.

The suspected gunman was described as a 64 year old man named Stephen paddock who according to the police checked into the hotel on 28th September. He was found dead as the police stormed into the hotel and 17 guns were found in his room. In addition to that, 18 firearms, explosives and several thousands of rounds of ammunition were found in the suspect's home. The brother of the suspect, Eric Paddock was shocked that he had possession of all these weapons.

The president Donald Trump described this attack as “an act of pure evil”. He didn’t discuss about any gun control measures or any specific action to deal with these mass shootings.

Trump said "the people of America should come together at this difficult time and recite the bond of values that unites America: our faith, our family and our shared values." He promised a visit Las Vegas on Wednesday.

The FBI said this attack doesn’t have any connection to any terrorist group.

Marilou Danley, a 62 year old Australian women identified as Paddock's girlfriend was first suspected but police found that she was out of the country at the time of attack.

The people going to the concert said they saw muzzle flashes from the upper floors of the Mandalay Bay hotel. Almost 22,000 people were attending the festival.

Jason Aldean, the country music star who was performing at the time when shooting happened described the scene as “beyond horrific”.

Such ruthless acts of horror not only reveals the existence of evil in the world but also weakens our faith in humanity.
