The leader of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis on Monday, October 3, 2017, said some things about the deadly Las Vegas mass killing.
According to Agence France Presse, AFP, the Pope described the mass shooting as a “senseless tragedy” after at least 50 people were gunned down and over 200 others wounded.
“Deeply saddened to learn of the shooting in Las Vegas, Pope Francis sends the assurance of his spiritual closeness to all those affected by this senseless tragedy,” the Vatican said in a telegram.

“He commends the efforts of the police and emergency service personnel, and offers the promise of his prayers for the injured and for all who have died,” it added.
A terrorist group which claimed responsibility for the terrorist act has been jettisoned by a good number of quarters as untrue. This is based on the fact that Stephen Paddock was the man that carried out the Las Vegas mass killing.
