It was 10:05pm on a regular Sunday night for the city that never sleeps, when all hell broke loose at a country music festival that was going on at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. It was October 1, 2017 and approximately 59 people were killed that night with over 500 people injured.

It was said by witnesses that the shooting lasted from nine to eleven minutes near the Mandalay Bay Casino. The Las Vegas police claimed that the suspect, Stephen Craig Paddock, started firing from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel at the people who were attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. After the massive shooting, the authorities found Stephen Craig dead in his hotel room. The authorities claim that he killed himself just moments before they had arrived outside the hotel door. As the police searched the hotel, they found that the gunman had placed two cameras outside his room in the hallway for the purpose of monitoring the police’s or security’s movement. In his room, the police found 12 weapons with devices attached to them to allow semiautomatic rifles to impersonate fully automatic gunfire.

According to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Special Agent in Charge, Jill Schneider, Stephen Craig had approximately fifty weapons in three different locations.

After the shooting, many people were transferred to hospitals where they were in between life and death. Numbers kept growing as days went by. At the end, nearly 900 people died from the night of the Las Vegas shooting. Those who survived live with this haunting memory forever and live to tell their story. `.
