A shooting during the 2017 Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, Nev., late Sunday night (Oct. 1) claimed the lives of more than 50 people -- 59, to be exact. Fifty-nine country music-loving people who gathered on the Las Vegas Strip to enjoy the company of friends and hear plenty of live music.
Among those who died when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock began firing on the Route 91 Harvest Festival crowd from a hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino are someone's parents, children, brothers, sisters, significant others and friends. They were veterans, teachers, off-duty police officers, lawyers ... and they were all taken far too soon.
