Local at Las Vegas Mass Shooting


An Oklahoma woman was caught in the gunfire in Las Vegas.

Shelby Perry, from Beaver, Oklahoma, has a broken arm and collarbone after she was shot in the right bicep. The bullet hit the 22 year old Perry so hard that it broke her arm and collarbone, according to her mother.

Perry was taken to a Las Vegas hospital, where she will have surgery today.

Las Vegas authorities say a man opened fire on an outdoor concert late Sunday.

Despite rumors, Las Vegas authorities still believe only one man was responsible for killing at least 59 people and injuring 527 after he opened fire. It is now the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

SWAT teams quickly surrounded the concert and the casino, and used explosives to get into the hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across the street from the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival, where the gunman was inside. The gunman, identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, was found dead. Police believe he killed himself prior to their entry.

Paddock is from Mesquite, Nev., about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. And first checked into the hotel on Sept. 28.

The three-day festival was billed as a three-day “neon” sleepover in Vegas. Several big name performers were involved, including Sam Hunt, Eric Church and Lee Brice, and headliner, Jason Aldean, who ran off stage when the gunfire began. Aldean is scheduled to be at the BOK Center in Tulsa the 12th of this month.
