CARSON CITY, Nevada (KOLO) – Flags at the Nevada Capitol and all public buildings across the state will be hoisted at half mast on Friday to honor the lives lost in the October 1, 2017 shooting, which left 58 and more dead 850 wounded.
Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire from a Mandalay Bay hotel window before killing himself as police approached. It was the deadliest shootout in modern American history.
A year ago, a judge approved an $ 800 million settlement between MGM Resorts International and more than 4,400 relatives and victims. MGM Resorts disclaims all liability.
Police never determined the motive for the attack, but speculated that he may have wanted notoriety.
Sisolak released this statement on Thursday:
“On this fourth anniversary of this horrific and senseless violence, the Nevadans mourn along with the friends, family and loved ones of the victims who were killed in the devastating attack. We remember and honor members of law enforcement organizations, first responders and people from all walks of life who provided help and assistance in countless ways during our time of need. Through our grief, we reflect on the outpouring of kindness and support received from our fellow Americans and communities around the world, and we express our sincere gratitude to all who have helped us become “Vegas Stronger.” “
