President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will lead a moment of silence to honor the victims of Sunday night's shooting in Las Vegas at 2:45 p.m. EDT on the South Lawn of the White House. Trump will visit Las Vegas on Wednesday. 

At least 58 people were killed and 515 were injured in the shooting last night at a country music festival. The perpetrator, identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, committed suicide as SWAT teams swarmed his hotel room. Paddock's motivation is unknown.
