A Look Back
This mass shooting comes on the heels of other acts of violence at entertainment events in recent years. Over 20 people were killed in a shooting in Manchester, England, at an Ariana Grande concert earlier this summer. In November of 2015, 130 people were killed and many were held hostage at a concert at Le Bataclan in Paris.
Route 91 Harvest became the deadliest shooting in U.S. history Monday. The previous deadliest shooting was at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, where 49 people were killed by a shooter in June 2016.
