    That do not know that the woman was accompliance...she was not in the room when police shot the shooter. But the two of them wete seen earlier in the past few days. The news is still early and incomplete we all will know more later.
    I just got nauseous when I turned on the news.... This type of thing has become common place here...but still hurts.

    They've just said on the news she presented herself at a hospital so she's been arrested...

    ...we have a lot of terror attacks here too ... London is a huge target, we had the Irish terrorists during the 70's, they even killed a member of the Royal family, and paralysed a senior politicians wife., as well as many innocent victims ... we had serial killers targeting children in classrooms... as you have in the USA . ... In recent years we've had so called Jihadi attacks..many, many...of them ... and just recently in the North of England (Manchester) a bomber targeted the Ariana grande concert, killing children...


    This is not something we have to get used to... the fact that nothing is done to prevent it... they keep trotting out the old tired adage '' lessons should be learned''...but bloody lessons are never learned...

    However, no-one can prevent a nutter just taking the law into his own hands.....

    News here ...so far not mentioning her being arrested.However amount injured is now 400. Hospitals there are over capacity.Many died in route to hospital.
    IF the report is correct...the type of military bullets used...one bullet can travel thru more than one person.
    Police was familiar with the shooter. Now saying shooter killed hisself.
    Gee zus this is just too much !

    So sad, I'm watching it now. Woke up to what I thought was a normal Monday. Got my coffee and then got on my iPad to learn about the shooting.

    Ive been to Vegas so many times and so have my kids but it could have been anywhere....so tired of all this....if it's not terrorists...it's some nutjob. :(

    I hope no-one is offended by looking into the face of a murderer... because everyone should know what Evil looks like...

    Not the big boogie man , or the masked Jihadi....but sometimes it's the regular looking person next door...


    ..and this Coward of a Man , has single handedly been responsible for the biggest and most Evil act on American citizens in recent years ... on his very own people , .


    Look upon the face of Evil, otherwise known as 64 year old Peter Paddock!!

    This is horrible. I have never been in favor of gun control but now I have to wonder if there is some reasonable way to keep guns out of the hands of people like him. Somebody said that the police were familiar with him, does anyone know how; what his record was? Was he known to be mentally unstable?

    According to this article, he was an average guy.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...s-Vegas-shooting-suspect-Stephen-Paddock.html

    Just heard he only had one traffic violation in Vegas, none in his town of Mesquite.

    Yes, I saw the interview with the brother and I thought he was weird also...not what my reaction would be if my brother had done something so horrid.

    @Ken Anderson should move it to the news section.

    I saw him just now - he was 'totally' shocked
    His words also showed his shock, the slight variation in tone, which may have come across as a giggle
    did not to me. Nerves can do that to the voice. He seemed very genuine

    This is from CNN...seems his dad had some issues in the past.


    October 2, 2017 1:30pm EDT
    Shooter's dad was a bank robber on the FBI most wanted list
    From CNN's Evan Perez, Jay Shaylor, John Couwels and David Shortell:

    Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s father was previously on the FBI’s most wanted list, the FBI confirms.

    The FBI lists Benjamin Hoskins Paddock as on the FBI’s most wanted list from June 10, 1969 until May 5, 1977. A most wanted poster lists multiple aliases for Paddock as well.

    Eric Paddock, Stephen Paddock's brother, told CNN that their father died a few years ago. Eric Paddock says he was born while his father was on the run.

    An FBI most wanted poster from 1969 says Paddock was convicted of bank robbery, automobile larceny, and “confidence game.” The poster calls him “psychopathic” and says he “has carried firearms in commission of bank robberies,” and that he “reportedly has suicidal tendencies and should be considered armed and very dangerous.”
