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.

            For reasons of understanding and possibly prevention, the question of what was wrong with the perpetrator is taxing people’s minds–including mine. There has been plenty of speculation over the last week, including such colloquial, yet very stigmatizing terms as monster, miscreant, and madman. Such terminology suggests how difficult it is to empathize or feel any compassion toward such a person, although that is part and parcel of what it takes to be a psychiatrist and to understand and treat patients.

How, then,

A Las Vegas Hospital Is Waiving Medical Costs for Mass Shooting Victims

After the October 1 mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest music festival left approximately 500 people injured, Las Vegas hospitals almost looked like “a war zone,” one on-call doctor told NPR. The wounds caused by both gunshots and shrapnel left facilities rushing to treat the onslaught of victims, whether or not they had insurance.

But despite the serious and expensive procedures they required, patients at one area hospital will see one potential burden lifted from their shoulders. Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican told the Las Vegas Sun yesterday that victims who received care at their facilities won’t have to pay out of pocket for their treatments.

“Our focus remains on the immediate medical and supportive care needs of the injured as well as

Conspiracy Theories Spring Up, Spread in the Wake of Las Vegas Mass Shooting

A week after a mass shooting turned an outdoor country music festival into the site of a massacre, Las Vegas was a city mourning, and its iconic Strip a crime scene. Before many of the dead were even identified, a now all-too-familiar network of conspiracy peddlers had pounced.

Police say Stephen Paddock, 64, used the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino as a vantage point from which he rained automatic gunfire down on the Route 91 Harvest Festival crowd of 22,000 below. In what would be the worst mass shooting in modern United States history on 1 October 2017, 58 people lost their lives and hundreds more were injured. Hauntingly, when we visited the Strip the following weekend, bouquets still lay around the festival grounds, marking the spots where people had collapsed while trying to flee.
