Stephen Paddock, the shooter who made 58 dead and over 500 injured on 1 st October in Las Vegas, had also planned to attack the festival Lollapalooza, which included the daughter of the ex-US president, Malia Obama.
Since 1 st October the United States are in deep distress. While thousands of people attended a Country concert, Stephen Paddock, a man posted from his hotel room, began shooting at the audience. 58 people were killed and more than 500 injured.
Las Vegas is deeply saddened by this drama as millions of Americans. The Obama family does not cease too, to think of all these innocent victims, and especially Malia who really was lucky. Indeed, Barack’s daughter and Michelle Obama later knew that she could also have been one of the shooter’s targets.
According to the investigation, Stephen Paddock planned to go to the Lollapalooza festival to make victims. This festival takes place in August and welcomes over 100,000 visitors a day.
The TMZ website revealed that the shooter had booked two hotel rooms overlooking Grant Park, where the festival’s concerts take place. Malia Obama is known for being a faithful participant of the Lollapalooza festival. The daughter of the former president of the United States was there last year. This year, the 19-year-old girl went there. She was once again seen dancing, enthusiastic and happy, like most young people her age.
Asked about a hypothetical link between the shooter and the Islamic State (IS) organization, which claimed responsibility for the attack, Donald Trump replied, “I have no idea.” Before adding to journalists aboard Air Force One and Twitter, Stephen Paddock was “demented”, a “sick.”
“We have not ruled out any tracks in this investigation yet,” said Las Vegas Deputy Sheriff Kevin McMahill. The death toll of 59 dead previously given by the police included the killer, he said at a press conference.
