A bell tolled three times as a solemn President Donald Trump paused on the White House South Lawn for a moment of silence in honor of the victims of Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas.
Flanked by first lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, Trump walked out onto the lawn for the memorial moment Monday afternoon. The White House’s flag stood at half-staff overhead.
They were honoring the 58 people killed night when a gunman opened fire on a concert crowd in Las Vegas. Police say Stephen Craig Paddock was on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay casino-hotel tower Sunday night when he fired into Route 91 Harvest festival. More than 500 people were wounded.
