  1. Hoaxes Being Spread About the Las Vegas Shooting As Muslim

    After the shooting Sunday night at the Route 91 Harvest Festival near the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas killed at least 58 people and injured hundreds more, online trolls started circulating false reports involving Muslims.

    Information spreads quickly after mass shootings, as people frantically try to find out what happened. But misinformation spreads even faster.

    Conservative media personality Wayne Allyn Root tweeted to his nearly 110,000 followers that there were shots fired at multiple hotels in a “coordinated Muslim terror attack.”

    Shooting victims everywhere. Shots fired at Mandalay, Trop, Bellagio, NYNY, Luxor, Hooters, Stratosphere. This is real thing. Muslim terror.
    8:51 AM – Oct 2, 2017

    There isn’t evidence of shots fired at other hotels on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night, nor is there evidence that the shooter was linked to Muslim terrorists.
    Police have identified Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, as the shooter. The Las Vegas Shooting Suspect Was Found Dead With a Lot of Guns.
