Over 60 people attending a birthday party on New Year’s Eve in Cartersville, GA were taken into custody after officers discovered marijuana on the premises. They have all been charged for possession, though a vast number of them say they had no involvement with the substance in any way.

A nearby resident returning from an evening out called 911 to report what he believed were the sounds of gunshots in the area. When police responded they came across a party taking place, and they detained the remaining attendees while inspecting the premises to try to determine the origin of the reported gunfire.

When people at the party were questioned they alleged that the shots heard coming from the 21st birthday celebration were fireworks, and not a discharged weapon.

A gunman, now identified as Stephen Craig Paddock, of Mesquite, used a fully-automatic assault rifle to fire hundreds, perhaps thousands of rounds down onto a crowd of fans enjoying the conclusion of a three-day country music festival near the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Over 58 people are dead and at least 400 wounded in the now-deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

In footage of the attack, dozens of shots can be heard going off in a matter of seconds. Officers and SWAT team personnel stormed the hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino to find Paddock dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Among the wounded and dead were four off-duty police officers.
