Las Vegas: One Year After America’s Worst Mass Shooting by an Individual


Las Vegas, Nevada, is known worldwide for its gambling, resorts, shopping and entertainment. But one year ago, it became the site of the worst mass shooting by an individual in the United States. Stephen Paddock, 64, shot more than 1,000 rifle rounds from an upper story hotel window into an outdoor concert. He killed nearly 60 people and shot himself as police closed in. VOA’s Carolyn Presutti returned to Las Vegas to see what has changed at this popular stop for tourists from around the world.
