Todd Starnes Show Recap - Oct 02
THE THIRD HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW:
2:05pm ET –Deadliest in History! A gunman carried out the deadliest mass shooting in US history by opening fire at a Las Vegas outdoor music concert — killing at least 50 people and wounding more than 200 before being fatally shot, officials said. Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nev., unleashed a withering hail of bullets from an automatic weapon from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel as about 40,000 people were enjoying the music. Described as a “lone wolf” by Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, Paddock had a criminal past and was known to local law enforcement. He had no known connection to terrorism and police have not called the shooting a terrorist attack, according to Lombardo. “We have no idea what his belief system was,” Lombardo said. “Right now, we believe he was the sole aggressor and the scene is static.”

THE SECOND HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW:
1:05pm- Prayers! President Donald Trump expressed his "warmest condolences"Monday morning to the victims of a mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip — the deadliest in modern U.S. history — that left more than 50 people dead and sent more than 400 to area hospitals. "My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!" the president wrote online. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Trump had been briefed on the mass shooting, and that he was expected to deliver remarks on the tragedy later in the morning. Law enforcement officials in Las Vegas said the gunman, a white man identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, opened fire late Sunday night from a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino on a music festival during a performance by country star Jason Aldean. Roughly 22,000 people were at the concert, and Paddock's motivation was not immediately clear.

12:05pm- Terror on the Strip! A gunman turned a Las Vegas concert into a killing field Sunday night, murdering at least 50 people and sending more than 400 others to hospitals in the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history. The suspect, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, was identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, a resident of Mesquite. Police initially sought a woman believed to be Paddock's roommate, Marilou Danley, as "person of interest." Detectives later made contact with her, and "do not believe she is involved with the shooting on the strip."
