Another Las Vegas massacre survivor dies weeks later — this time …

Roy McClellan had been gone for days. Calls to his phone had gone to voice mail, his wife wrote in a Thursday Facebook post asking people to let her know if anyone had seen her husband.

Denise McClellan learned on the same day that Roy was killed in a hit-and-run crash days earlier, on Nov. 17, seven weeks after he survived the Oct. 1 Las Vegas massacre.

Roy McClellan was in Pahrump in southern Nevada, about 60 miles west of Las Vegas, the day he was killed. He had a fight with a friend and took off about 2 a.m. and was not heard from since, Denise McClellan wrote on Facebook.

The crash occurred at Homestead Road and Highway 160 in Pahrump, NBC affiliate KSNV reported. A spokesman for the Nevada Highway Patrol did not immediately respond to a call and email from The

Texas Church Massacre: Why Did It Happen?

Mass murderer Devin Patrick Kelley was a violent, domestic abuser, who was kicked out of the U.S. Air Force and passed the time mocking religion and proselytizing for atheism.

On cue the Left did what it always does after gut-wrenching tragedies, using the attack to call for more assaults on Americans’ Second Amendment rights. Of course Barack Obama led the way. Others say Kelley’s hostility to religion may have motivated the assault.

Wearing black tactical gear and armed with a military-style rifle, the 26-year-old fired at least 450 rounds, killing at least 26 people and wounding 24 early Sunday at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Wilson County, Texas, less than an hour’s drive southeast of San Antonio. Investigators say Kelley entered the church with the intention of killing everyone there.

Acting the way a president should, President Trump called the murders an “act of evil.”

Las Vegas police shift timeline again in concert massacre

LAS VEGAS — Nearly two weeks after the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history, authorities are still sorting out the timeline of events before a high-stakes video poker player who killed 58 people from his high-rise hotel room in Las Vegas. 

What drove Stephen Paddock to open fire on the country music festival? Police and the FBI say they’re still at a loss to explain his motive.

Why did Paddock stop firing into the concert? Authorities do not know, but police apparently had not reached his Mandalay Bay hotel room by that point. 

When did he fire his first shots in his hotel room? Las Vegas police released new information about the case Friday after a week that has seen the shooting timeline change almost daily. 

Las Vegas mass killer researched Lollapalooza before massacre

LAS VEGAS (AP) — In the days and months before he mowed down concertgoers from his high-rise hotel suite, gunman Stephen Paddock rented rooms overlooking two other music festivals in Las Vegas and Chicago, authorities said.

They gave no details on what his intentions might have been.

The disclosures came as investigators struggled for a fourth day to explain what led the 64-year-old high-stakes gambler to open fire Sunday night on an open-air country music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel casino. He killed 58 people and injured more than 500 before taking his own life.

Authorities have been trying to track Paddock’s movements in the days and weeks before the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

In August, Paddock booked a room at Chicago’s Blackstone Hotel that overlooked the park where the Lollapalooza music festival was held that weekend, a law enforcement official said Thursday.

The official said no

Nephew of Las Vegas shooter’s girlfriend stunned by massacre

The nephew of Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend was left with an unremarkable impression of the future mass killer when the Aussie met him in Vegas a few months ago, according to a report.

Jordan Knights of Queensland was traveling in the US with his mother, Amelia Manango, when they stopped in Sin City to visit her sister, Marilou Danley, Nine News reported.

The 23-year-old and his mom were the first of Danley’s relatives to meet Paddock, a retired accountant and gambling addict with whom she shared a home in Mesquite, Nevada, about 80 miles from Vegas.

Knights said he noticed nothing unusual about the man who would become America’s worst mass murderer.

“It seemed like he just looked after my aunty, and that was it,” Knights said.

The young man said he was shocked to see his aunt’s name in news reports after the slaughter.

“I was like, ‘What the heck?’ It was crazy,” Knights said.

Services will mark 1 year since Pulse nightclub massacre

ORLANDO, Fla. — Church bells will toll throughout the Orlando area as residents reflect on the 49 patrons killed during a massacre at Pulse nightclub in the worst mass shooting in recent U.S. history.

Hundreds gathered on Saturday morning at the city’s Wadeview Park to participate in the “CommUNITY Rainbow Run” 4.9K race. Pulse nightclub owner Barbara Poma waved a sign as runners passed by that read: “We will not let hate win,” CBS Orlando affiliate WKMG reports.

Poma said community members are leaning on each other as the first anniversary of the shooting approaches.

“Orlando will always show how united we are,” she told the station.

Orlando nightclub massacre: New police body-cam video released from mass shooting

New videos released Wednesday from body-cams on officers responding to the attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando show shattered glass inside the club, the sounds of automatic gunfire and an officer shouting to the gunman, “Come out with your hands up or you will die!”

The 11 hours of video show Pulse patrons running from the club and officers shouting, “Just go!” as they direct them to safety across the street.

In another video, an officer off camera inside the club checks for the pulse of a patron only to announce the victim is dead.

Another officer later is heard in a video realizing that the massacre is an act of terrorism.

“It’s terrorism in Orlando,” the officer is heard saying of gunman Omar Mateen. “He pledged something to the Islamic State.”

The 11 hours of footage were given to the Orlando Sentinel, FOX 35 Orlando, and ABC News through a public
