Reported Shooting At Mandalay Bay In Las Vegas

More than 58 are dead and 515 wounded after a lone gunman shot hundreds of bullets into an outside concert in Las Vegas, Nevada, The New York Times reports.

Fans were attending an outdoors country music concert at around 10:08pm near Mandalay Bay Casino when the sound of gun shots sharply cut through the music.

Several SWAT teams rushed to the area and killed the suspect shortly before 12:00am.

In the aftermath, 58 people were killed and more than 500 injured, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of Clark County told press early Monday morning. The gunman was identified at 64-year-old Stephen Paddock.

“We have no idea what his belief system was,” Lombardo said. “Right now, we believe he was the sole aggressor and the scene is static.”

Authorities are also searching for a possible female companion to the shooter, Marilou Danley.

Officials have marked this tragic incident the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

  1. F all you NIGS! You black SOB. I cant stand you bastards. This is the standard in your communities. One white lunatic or thousands of black gangbangers shooting each other on the streets of America on a daily basis. GTFOH you animals!

  2. The thing that is most disturbing to me, is unless he left a manifesto or confided in someone about what he was planning, we will never know why this nut job went off the rails. That disturbs me. But what makes me so livid I can hardly put into words how much I hate this lunatic, is that he is no longer here to face the wrath of people who want to see him burn. He killed 58 people and there will be no atonement. Nothing. They’re just dead. End of story. I’m just mad.

  3. Condolences and Rest in Peace to the victims of the Mandalay Bay Massacre and their loved ones. “In the midst of Life, we are in Death.” Las Vegas has had a record # of homicides this year, and last year was also very bad. Two of my friends were brutally murdered in separate, unrelated killings during the past year. I was at the UNLV Law Library right before last night’s massacre, and almost went to the Strip via Tropicana, but decided to go home instead. The bus driver and I saw dozens of police cars and ambulances racing South on Maryland Parkway to the scene. We both knew something very bad had happened. It is extremely doubtful that Mr. Paddock had any connection whatsoever to ISIS, and they look foolish trying to “claim” this massacre to improve their “terrorist street cred.” It’s astounding how much damage a single angry, bitter, or crazy man can do with guns. Assault rifles should be banned: they are meant for military, not civilian, use.

    Where is paddock’s mug shot? What’s his education level? Was he on meth? What about heroine? Was he born to a single white mother? I want to know all the terrible things he’s done in the past, including speeding tickets.
    This is the unfair shit people of color have always talked about, the bias reporting of white mass murderers and white crimes period.

    • You won’t see a mug shot because he doesn’t have one. He had no criminal record. He went to college, worked for a predecessor company of Lockheed Martin and held a pilot’s license. Wonder why he went stupid.

        If he had a pilots licence or drivers license, he had a photo that can be shown. I agree that the media will very quickly show a Blacj or Hispanic person’s photo, but barely even give a description, let alone a photo when it comes to White crimes.

    Racist will only chime in and comment on the stories that confirm their racism or white supremacy, just like faux news they cherry pick the stories that cater to their mental illness.

  6. Specialt- what else is sad is that they just welcomed one of their colleagues back last wk after he damn near died from gun violence. They still won’t pass gun legislation to outlaw these assault weapons. They didn’t do it when the congresswoman Gabby was shot and they won’t do it now. Shameful!!

    • Guest1 on said:

      They didn’t do it when children were shot, so grown ass adults getting killed means nothing. They’ll chalk these people up as casualties of war and keep it moving.

      • specialt757 on said:

        They certainly will keep it moving, business as usual. No gunman up until this point has come into the capitol building and starting his killing spree or came to the private homes of these lawmakers, so until then I don’t think anything will change their views, and even then, I’m not sure it will.

    Yeah, where are the trolls when one their own wreaks havoc like this? Crickets. Fake Doctor, Mynue, Jhuff, McBen, Hoodteckie? Whites kill with malice and forethought, and always concerned with black on black crime. They damn sure better start cleaning their own house before trying to get up in someone else’s. Hypocrites!
    pretender, dissembler, deceiver, liar, pietist, sanctimonious person

    • specialt757 on said:

      Nope not a peep from these sniveling yellow-belly cowards, and we all know why, because no one black committed this heinous crime and they can’t blame Obama. Fake ass, self-hating, inbred trolls, shhhh quiet, listen…crickets.

      • Guest1 on said:

        Special, they’re around. Creeping, searching for articles involving anyone other than white people. I’m surprised Fake Dr. hasn’t commented on the Jenkins funeral story yet. That’s what he does. Skip over shit committed by whites like it never happened.

    Exactly L. My husband and I were talking about how these gun lobbyists want to make sure they keep their semi-automatic and automatic weapons and to be able to purchase shit loads of ammunition when Prez O. was trying to reduce the number of weapons and ammunitions nuts like this fool could buy. NO ONE needs this kind of weapons or this amount of ammunition unless they are hunting what? PEOPLE!!!!!

    You are absolutely right; a fool WHITE man whose aim was to kill as many folks as he possibly could until they killed his ass. He wasn’t planning on stopping until he ran out of ammo which again he could freely buy as much as he wanted at any time, because why? There are no gun laws to prevent.
    This mass shooting is all on congress! But most definitely TRUMP owns this. They have failed citizens of America 10-fold. But now 45 can’t even blame this on Mexican immigrants or Muslim, nope good ole homegrown white terrorist.
    Jhuf and the other clowns on here talking about they own 6 guns for no reason other than home protection. YEAH right, miss me wit it! No one needs these amounts of guns for home protection. They better hope, no one breaks in and kills them with their own weapons.

  9. We don’t have to worry about ISIS-we have enuff homegrown TERRORISTS right here in our own back yard.

    This nut was an elderly white man-I wonder what his issues were and why he chose to shoot and kill innocent folks?

    I bet he had an arsenal of guns in his home also. Most of this nuts are HEAVILY ARMED!!!!!

  10. oh wow – a thuggish white man goes on a shooting spree. Where ya at, all you bigoted, racist fools who are always trolling here with your unintelligent comments….hmmm, where are you now?!!!!

    • Wow. All these people dead and wounded and the race of the hellion that rained all this death and destruction down upon these people is all you can obsess about? Damn.

      • Actually, no that is not all I can think about. However, whenever there is an occurrence that involves a person of color, his/her picture is immediately blasted all over the news, what, if any, criminal record he/she has, their level of education or lack thereof, and so on. My point – – accept the fact that evil exists among us and it has nothing to do with the color of a persons skin. Acknowledge and accept that and maybe we can begin to move forward as a race, the human race, of people.

    • And 46 will probably have the worst shooting in this country under his watch, as it seems that with each new attack, these skid marks try to outdo each other. What’s your point?

      • My point is he was so quit to criticize Obama on every damn thing and his sorry ass is the worst of the worst.
        THATS MY POINT!!!!

      • specialt757 on said:

        It’s all bad on president, no president wants mass killings of innocent people because of a deranged lunatic. But I didn’t hear this when people were claiming the mass shooting of the gay night club in FL was on Prez. O. No one defended Prez O. (on the other side), everyone seemed to attack him as if he was the shooter or he somehow caused it. Now what’s this idiot president’s response going to be? He can’t blame the Mexicans or the Muslim, but I’m sure someway somehow, he will make sure no dirt gets on him, he’s not going to claim ownership, because it’s NEVER his fault, even when it clearly is.
        The same way, he said Prez O was on the golf course when we had some catastrophe, storm or something or another, but he can’t be bother with PR because he’s handing out awards on HIS golf course for something that only matters to a handful of folks while 100s of thousands of folks are suffering in one his territories. He’s a real class act! NOT!!!!
        For the life of me, I can’t understand why you feel the need to defend this person at all costs when he won’t ever take responsibility for any of his mistakes and straight out LIES.

      45 will do what he always does, nothing. He’ll read some emotionless speech off of a teleprompter and go on as usual. He can no longer blame Obama, but I personally have no expectations of him.

    • Guest1 on said:

      Thank you D. My condolences to all who were killed a/o injured. Had the shooter been a black man, a Muslim or Hispanic, #45 would be all over this. How he’s going to close down the world to these terrorists. He’s not concerned with the act but the nationality of the shooter and that seems to be all that matters to him when it’s a non-white committing the act. All he’s saying now, is that…”it’s an evil act.” Duh, #45, Really? He won’t say how sorry this POS white man is or that Stephen Paddock is a disgruntled home grown terrorist on his watch. The worst in US history. I’ll worry about the 2018 attack in 2018 should there be one. But right now in 2017, #45 owns this.

      • Btw my heart aches for the ppl who were attacked ftom this homegrown terrorist. It’s a tragedy. So the fake prez is going to Las Vegas. For what? A photo op? The same reasons he’s taking his punk ass to PR tues. He’s a fake bitch and I won’t apologize for calling him one.

      • D,
        I know these where innocent victims who probably didn’t deserve their fate. But there is a message in the madness. Nine out of ten of them were probably NRA card carrying members who fought tooth and nail to make sure all white citizens even the mentally unstable had a right to carry.
