    From Drudge;


    Las Vegas gunman suspect is Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada

    https://www.cnbc.com/2017/10/02/las-...-mesquite.html

    Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, NV, has been identified as the suspected gunman in the Las Vegas shooting
    At least 50 people died and more than 200 were injured in the attack near Mandalay Bay hotel
    Police are still looking for Marilou Danley who they believe was with the suspect before the shooting

    The suspected gunmen in the Las Vegas shooting has been identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock from Mesquite, Nevada.

    Over 50 people died and more than 200 were injured after a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival which was taking place across the road from Mandalay Bay on the famous Las Vegas Strip.

    Police said a suspect was apprehended on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel where he died.

    Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said the authorities have not completed an investigation into Paddock's background and history. But Lombardo said the police department had located a number of firearms in the room that he occupied in the hotel. Officers will also be carrying out a search on Paddock's residence.

    Investigators said they were searching for Marilou Danley, an Asian woman who was traveling with Paddock, to question her. Lombardo said that the person of interest is Marilou Danley, who he described as an Asian female who is 4 foot and 11 inches tall.

    But in a separate press conference later in the morning, Lombardo said the LVMPD is "confident" it had located the female person of interest and the vehicles in question.

    NBC News said that police described Danley as his companion and she was living with him. The police are also searching Paddock's house.

    Paddock was not known to the federal authorities, but was known to local law enforcement, according to NBC News.

    He has no known connection to terrorism and police have not called the shooting a terrorist attack, according to the news agency.

    Stephen Paddock (shooter/dead) and Marilou Danley (suspect/sought)

    Marilou Danley, a former “high-limit hostess” at a casino, was identified by the Las Vegas Sheriff as a “person of interest” in the mass shooting that took the lives of at least 50 people at a country music concert at the Mandalay Bay resort and casino on the Las Vegas strip.

    The mother and grandmother, whose now deleted Facebook page was full of photos with family members and trips overseas, was described by police as a 4’11” Asian woman. She was described as a “companion” of the still unidentified shooter. Police stopped short of calling Danley a suspect in the early morning hours of October 2, but they said they wanted to talk to her about the carnage. The sheriff also revealed that, in addition to the 50 deaths, at least 200 people were injured late on October 1 when the shooter opened fire on the crowd at a Route 91 Harvest country music festival near the Mandalay Bay.

    Authorities Released Danley’s Name as a ‘Person of Interest’ & Said She Was Paddock’s Roommate.
    Police said Danley, 62, lived with the shooter in Mesquite. Public records show she lived at the same address as him since January 2017.

    The shooter's photo – which was on Danley’s Facebook page – is of Paddock.

    There were reports that a woman had come out and told concertgoers that everyone was going to die right before the shooting, but it was unconfirmed and unclear who the woman was; you can listen to that eyewitness account here:

    This is not good. Woke up this morning hoping this was a bad dream, but it isn't. Sadly, I think this may be the one tragic event that would bring us Australian style gun control laws TPTB have been calling for and Trump is the right man to do it.

    No, that won't happen. Australia doesn't have a system of checks and balances like we do. That's the only way Australia gets away with it.

    Besides, the government doesn't have the man power or resources to go out and take everyone's guns. They're outnumbered by over a thousand to one by armed citizens.

    Supposedly, the guy was an anti-Trump, Antifa activist. Facebook already scrubbed his page, though.

    I say 'supposedly' because I've read it several times elsewhere.

    It could be wrong.

    This is so sad, so many people dead and hurt. One of the strangest things about America these days is how we never seem unified in grief, after a tragedy all sides pounce to blame and point fingers at other groups and their violent nature or lack thereof. These events are beyond politicized. We all seem so numb. It'd be nice if we as a culture could set everything aside for a day and show some comfort. Maybe I'm just a sentimentalist but good grief guys, there ought to be more celebration for this short gift we call life and mourning for the loss of it.


    May God comfort the hurting and have mercy on us all.

    What a sad shock news to wake up to, saw a blip on ABC news late night that gave the impression just few people were injured and was not major incidence like it is being reported now.

    Early reporting can be incomplete/inaccurate often. All the headlines are reporting it as a regular shooting or massacre, going by that probably shooter did not have any political motivations or it would have been reported as a "terrorist" shooting.
    There was different incidence in Canada yesterday were two women were stabbed by suspected terrorist.

    Just saw this on Drudge report:

    I'm no expert, but the 'raw video' that was posted here sure seems to support GunnyFreedom's idea that there were two automatic rifles firing at the same time...

    Readers share a report:

    At least 50 people are dead and more than 200 wounded after a shooting late Sunday at a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip (Editor's note: the link could be paywalled; alternative source). Police said they were first alerted to reports of an incident at 10:08 p.m. and then determined there was a shooter on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino who was targeting the nearby Route 91 Harvest Festival. Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a briefing that officers responded and shot dead the suspect. He said the suspect was a local resident but declined to identify him, citing the ongoing investigation. Police are also trying to locate a female companion, who they named as Marilou Danley, who was traveling with the suspect.
