Retired Las Vegas Police Officer: Now Is a Time for Unity
Retired Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Randy Sutton says Americans must unite in the wake of a mass shooting in Las Vegas that left at least 58 people dead and more than 500 injured.
"This is going to affect thousands and thousands of people in a deeply personal way, but it will also affect all of America," Sutton said on "Outnumbered" today. "This event is a time for unity. This event is when we as the American people must stand up for each other."
He called on people to set aside their politics and petty animosities and come together as one America.
Sutton said it's been amazing to hear stories of victims helping each other and first responders rushing into harm's way.
"This is what we must concentrate on. This is what we must revel in, because if we think only about the death, only about the heartbreak, then we're going to have a very difficult time getting over this horrific, horrific event," he said.
The suspect, who has been identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, opened fire on an outdoor music festival from his hotel room on the 32nd story of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. He reportedly committed suicide as authorities breached his hotel room.
