#PRAYFORVEGAS Shooting Claims 58 Lives and Leaves over 500 Wounded

ABC is reporting:
 At least 58 people were killed and 515 were injured in Las Vegas Sunday night when a gunman opened fire on a music festival crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.It was the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.
The "nonstop gunfire," according to one witness, sent more than 22,000 country music fans scrambling for their lives. Two sources familiar with the investigation said there was a combination of rifles and handguns at the scene, and one of the sources said there were 19 weapons in the room.
In the wake of the shooting, the Las Vegas Police Department said authorities responded to a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, where police said the suspected gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, was dead. Police said they believe Paddock killed himself prior to police entry.
The motive was unclear.Officials said this morning they have found no connection between the shooting and any international terrorist group. Officials added that the suspect was not known to law enforcement.Let's be clear Stephen Paddock was a terrorist and a coward, to say the least. 
My thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by this tragedy.
