A gunman opened fire on people at an outdoor concert near the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas late Sunday, killing at least 50 people and injuring more than 400 in one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history. The shooting happened as country singer Jason Aldean was performing at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. A video posted online showed concertgoers ducking after gunfire erupted and the music stopped. “It was a horror show,” said concertgoer Ivetta Saldana, who took cover in a sewer. Several SWAT teams responded. Authorities said one suspect, a Las Vegas man identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, was found dead apparently of a self-inflicted wound on the 32nd floor of the hotel.
