After having their first two games of the season on the road, the Vegas Golden Knights had their first home game on Tuesday night. It’s also their first home game in franchise history at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Prior to their game against the Arizona Coyotes, the Golden Knights honored the first responders and medical professionals that helped save countless lives on Oct. 1. The deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history happened that night, as a gunman opened fire on the Route 91 Festival from his 32nd-floor room at the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort.

The gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, reportedly opened fire for at least 15 minutes. He also had a note in his suite that included numbers, which was the trajectory of which he had to shoot for the deadliest crime ever.

The Law Enforcement authorities have struggled to find a motive as to why Paddock did what he did. They have even changed the timeline of events, as now they believe he opened fire on a security guard first, Jesus Campos, before opening fire on the crowd below.

He killed 58 individuals and injured more than 500 people. Even more were saved due to strangers coming to the aid of others, who acted and did not care about the bullets that were flying to help those in need.

The final shots ended at 10:15 pm. Just ten minutes after the massacre happened. Campos is believed to have discovered the shooter before he wanted to be found — and helped the law enforcement authorities discover exactly what room he was in to help save others.

The law enforcement authorities did not breach his room until 11:20 pm, but he had already died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Vegas Golden Knights, UFC, along with the UNLV Rebels, are doing everything they can to help the town unify after the shooting and help the healing process.
