On Sunday, October 1, more than 50 people were killed and over 400 injured when a gunman opened fire on a country music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. The shooting has become the deadliest shooting in the history of the United States, and shooter Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada, has since been found dead in the hotel room upon which he rained hell to 22,000+ unsuspecting country music fans.
Since the shooting, the rock and metal world has voiced its unanimous sympathy toward the victims and their families. You can read the full report on the shootings via ABC News and The New York Times, and we here at Metal Injection offer our deepest condolences to all the victims, their families, their friends, and anyone who unfortunately had to witness these horrible acts of violence.
