What started out as a night of country music, turned into a night of mass casualties and thousands running for their lives. In Las Vegas, the Route 91 country music festival was going on when a gunman, identified as Stephen Paddock, shot fire at the crowd. Not knowing where the shooter was, the crowd ran and ducked for cover. But that offered little to no help because Paddock was shooting from 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel. It took the police around an hour to figure out where Paddock was shooting from and what floor he was on.  Before the authorities reached the floor, Paddock stopped shooting and then killed himself. Afterwards, the police searched Paddock’s room and found at least 23 guns that he brought into the hotel by himself. Overall, the number of people injured is at 527, while the number of those killed has gone up to 59 people. Investigators have found no motive as to why he chose to open fire on innocent people. Stories about the lives affected are incredibly heartbreaking. One that is absolutely sad is the story of Sonny Melton and his wife Heather. The two were attending the Route 91 festival when Paddock starting to rain gun fire on the crowd. Sonny saved his wife by grabbing her and covering her back. While they were running, Heather felt that he got shot in the back. She wrote to USA Today that, “I want everyone to know what a kind hearted loving man he was but at this point I can barely breathe,” When asked about the shooting, the most common replies from students were that the it was “horrific” and “shocking.” Senior, Jacob Estrada said, “It’s crazy to think that someone would think that killing a bunch of innocent people would help with whatever they are going through.” The shooting in Las Vegas is widely known as the “one of the deadliest mass shootings in American history.”
