Terror attack in Las Vegas kills 58, over 500 injured

LAS VEGAS, NV — Hundreds of people were in attendance Sunday night at an outdoor country music concert, Route 91, held across the street from the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. It is now the scene of the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

Las Vegas Metro Police confirms that at least 58 people died, and more than 500 are injured.

Concertgoers thought that the sound coming from Mandalay Bay was part of the concert.

 

But when the second round of gunfire began, people started running and attempted to take cover on the concert grounds.

 

Fil-Am resident Maryann Estoy was inside Mandalay Bay when the incident happened.

She said she grabbed her daughter, and ran as fast as she could.

 

“We run away and it wasn’t good because people were running away from the Luxor and walked away as far as we could away from the strip.”

 

A parade of ambulances were all over the city, and local hospitals say that they are at capacity from the shooting rampage.

 

 

The Las Vegas Strip continues to be closed down, and motorists are advised to avoid the northern and southern part of the Strip.

 

Some Fil-Ams who work in the casinos say social media was the only way to update their loved ones.

Casino guests who were on lockdown are sleeping in the ballrooms of the casinos.

 

Guests at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino have been released.

 

Las Vegas Metro confirms the suspect is identified as Stephen Paddock.

 

The person LVMPD were looking for, Marilou Danley, is no longer being sought out as a person of interest.

 

LVMPD detectives have made contact with her, and do not believe she is involved with the shooting on the strip.

 

On Twitter this morning, President Trump offered his condolences to the victims and families who were impacted by the attack.

 

The Philippine consulate in Los Angeles told BA it is closely monitoring developments. Philippine nationals who have inquiries on this matter can contact the Consulate’s “Assistance to Nationals” Hotline at 213-587-0758.
