Las Vegas: Stephen Paddock, 64, was identified as the gunman who opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and shot people attending an open-air music festival below, leaving at least 58 dead and an estimated 527 wounded. ISIS claimed credit and said that Paddock was a recent convert to Islam. However, Paddock’s brother says he was neither religious nor political. Paddock was a wealthy, retired accountant with two homes and an airplane who may have had gambling debt. Police say that he was dead when they entered his room and assume he killed himself. His father was a bank robber who once was on the FBI’s Most-Wanted List after escaping from prison. Hillary Clinton and other liberals are calling for gun control on the assumption that taking guns away from law-abiding citizens somehow would have prevented this carnage. -GEG

Stephen Paddock has been identified as the gunman who opened fire on concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday, leaving at least 59 people dead and 527 wounded in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, police said.

The shooter, a 64-year-old from Mesquite, Nevada, was firing from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel down at the festival, which was located in a fairgrounds area on Las Vegas Boulevard, hitting several concertgoers. Officers responded to the hotel room and engaged the suspect, police said. They do not believe at this time that there were any other shooters, despite reports of multiple gunmen. Police said they do not have an accurate number of victims yet, saying the totals they’ve released so far are estimates.

Paddock’s brother told The Associated Press that the shooter was a retired accountant who became a multimillionaire through real estate investments and high stakes gambling. “He was a guy who had money,” Eric Paddock said of his brother. “He went on cruises and gambled.”

Police have also not yet released a motive. Paddock does not have any known ties to terrorist organizations, NBC’s Pete Williams reports. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, claiming, without evidence, that Paddock is a “soldier” who converted to Islam months ago and was fighting for the so-called Islamic State, The Associated Press reports.

“We have determined to this point no connection to an international terror group,” FBI Special Agent-in-Charge Aaron Rouse said at a press conference. He said they are continuing to investigate to ensure that is a fact.

“The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department identified the lone suspect involved in the late night mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip as 64-year-old, Stephen Craig Paddock, a white
male from Mesquite, Nevada,” police said in a press release.

The concert festival was taking place in an outdoor area across from the Mandalay Bay and Luxor casinos on the famed Las Vegas Strip. A video taken by someone at the concert shows the moment when gunfire, described by police and witnesses as coming from an automatic weapon, erupted, with several shots fired in rapid succession:

I am wondering how “they” brainwash those people in doing such things? “They” will take American guns away and than a new level of NWO emerges. Welcome to 1984 in US for a change…
