What hap­pened in Las Vegas?

Vocable (All English) - - Focus -

The Las Vegas shoot­ing on 1 Oc­to­ber was the worst mass shoot­ing in re­cent Amer­i­can his­tory: at least 58 peo­ple were killed and 546 in­jured at the Route 91 fes­ti­val. The per­pe­tra­tor, Stephen Pad­dock, was a 64-year-old Ne­vada res­i­dent. He owned a to­tal of 49 firearms. 23 were re­cov­ered in his ho­tel suite and 26 were found in his res­i­dences. Twelve of these weapons were semi-au­to­matic ri­fles mod­i­fied with bump stocks, a de­vice that made them func­tion like au­to­matic weapons.
