las vegas shooting
On Oct. 1 2017, American gunman Stephen Paddock fired over 1,100 rounds from a 32nd floor suite of a nearby hotel on a crowd of concert-goers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada.
Considered the deadliest mass shooting in recent U.S. history, the horrible tragedy left 58 people dead and 546 injured.
Online shoe and clothing shop Zappos once again managed to let their charitable efforts shine through after offering to pay for funeral costs of the Las Vegas shooting victims.
Zappos, run by CEO Tony Hsieh, has already started a $1 million fundraiser to support the families of the 58 victims who lost their lives on October 1.
Concert-goers who were at the Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest Festival on October 1 will never ever forget the horrific shooting. For Ashley Quiocho, however, the grim incident will not only stay in her memories, but in her body as well.
Quiocho, who was raised in Waipahu, Hawaii, was one of the survivors of the Las Vegas shooting that claimed the lives of 59 people and injured 527 more in what is now considered the “deadliest mass shooting in United States history.”
Marilou Danley, girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter Steven Paddock, was in contact with a family member shortly after the Las Vegas massacre.
Reynaldo Bustos, Danley’s older brother, told ABC News that he immediately contact his younger sister upon hearing news of the shooting.
Workers at a Starbucks branch inside the Virgin River Casino in Mesquite, Nevada recalled encounters they’ve had with the Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock and his Filipina girlfriend Marilou Danley, who is now cleared by the police as a person of interest.
Before the tragic shooting that left 59 dead and 527 injured, workers behind the counter would often make a face whenever the 64-year-old gambler entered the Starbucks and humiliate his 62-year-old girlfriend in public, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Stephen Paddock, the spree-killing mass shooter who terrorized the Route 91 Harvest Festival, leaving at least 59 dead and 527 injured, wired $100,000 to Marilou Danley in the Philippines just days before the October 1 attack, according to The Hill.
Described as Paddock’s girlfriend, Danley lived with him in his Mesquite, Nevada residence. NBC reports that it is yet to be determined what Paddock intended the money to be used for; whether he meant for her to use the money to take care of herself, her family, or for some other purpose remains to be seen.
