PHOTOS: Mandalay Bay’s 32nd Floor Windows Shattered

Stephen Paddock, 64, has been identified as the suspect in the Las Vegas concert shooting that took place on Sunday night. Paddock had been staying at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino since Thursday. Last night, police say that Paddock opened fire from the 32nd story of the hotel, taking aim at thousands of people who were attending the Route 91 country festival across the street.

Paddock shot hundreds of rounds, killing 58 people and injuring over 500 more. According to law enforcement, more than 10 rifles were found in Paddock’s hotel room. He committed suicide before police found him. Law enforcement officials were alerted to Paddock’s room by a smoke alarm that had gone off because of all of the gun smoke.

Below are some photos of Mandalay Bay from earlier today. The hotel is located on the south end of the Las Vegas strip. The photos show two windows on the 32nd floor completely shattered, suggesting that the shooter just blasted through them with his guns. The windows in most Las Vegas hotels do not open. That can differ from hotel to hotel and can vary if someone is staying in a suite.

“Associated Press and Getty photos show a second window broken on the same floor, where drapes billowed out of the broken glass. Police didn’t specify which the shooter used, or if he shot out of both,” the Business Insider reported.

Around 8 a.m. local time, several hours after the hotel was evacuated, Mandalay Bay was reopened to the public and guests were allowed to head back to their hotel rooms.

As people begin to trickle back into the hotel, everything is pretty quiet. People who are in Vegas, whether to report on the news or on vacation have referred to the south end of the strip as a “ghost town.” Many casino floors are completely empty, restaurants are closed, and people are just trying to collect their thoughts following such an unthinkable tragedy.

Well !
I suppose this mass shooting was in protest along with that national anthem kneeling by pro football players ? To bring attention to their cause of police violence throughout the country .
Black lives matter a terrorist organization proclaiming to kill all cops is allowed to thrive and be well in America !
This is nothing but a black supremacist group ! The BLM is financially backed by those who wish to harm the United States and pacifically the Constitution. Another terrorist organization like ANTIFA is proclaiming to kill as many whites and cops on November 4th 2017 .. sites : unercover in ANTIFA , ther tactics and media sopport… also : America under siege antifa …
The Democratic party welcome these groups as allies and have the same common cause . Write your Congressman your senator ; and explain to them , this kind of racial hatred coming from the media Fanning the flames of racial divide in this country must stop !
