Vigil for Las Vegas taking place in Abilene

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - A Vigil for Las Vegas is taking place in Abilene Wednesday night. 

The event, hosted by Indivisible Abilene, will take place in Everman Park on N. 1st Street from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Additional details about the vigil have not been released. 

59 people were killed and over 500 injured when Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on the Las Vegas Strip from his 32nd-floor room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel Sunday night, as headliner Jason Alden was performing at a country music festival with thousands of attendees. 

Now, investigators are working to determine what prompted Paddock, a seemingly average person with no previous criminal history, to commit such a horrendous and tragic act of violence.
