    Shooting Kills Scores at Las Vegas Music Festival

    “Pure evil.” That’s how President Donald Trump described the mass shooting on Sunday night that left at least 58 dead and more than 500 injured at a Las Vegas country music festival — the deadliest such attack in modern U.S. history. The shooter, identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, reportedly opened fire on concertgoers from the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, sending thousands fleeing in panic. Police believe Paddock, who’d stockpiled at least 23 weapons in his room, later killed himself. Trump will visit Las Vegas on Wednesday.
