The Las Vegas shooting is the deadliest shooting in modern US history. Gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire during the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. The shooting left 58 dead and 851 injured.
Las Vegas police were called to the city’s main strip amid reports of a shooting. One pair of tourists managed to capture both the chilling sound of the gunshots and the dramatic reaction it sparked, all while taking a selfie.
Survivors of last year’s massacre at the Route 91 country music festival in Las Vegas were at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks as the gunman started firing sporadically killing 12 people and injuring many.
All 58 victims killed during the Las Vegas massacre died of gunshot wounds and were homicides, a coroner’s report found. A third of the victims were shot in the head. The gunman, Stephen Paddock, shot himself in the mouth.
