Las Vegas morning update for Saturday, October 7th — VIDEO

Here are your Saturday morning headlines:

1. A UNLV history professor told her class last week that she predicted “people will die” when Donald Trump was elected president. Tessa Winklemann made the comments to her class Thursday, that placed some of the blame for Sunday’s Strip shooting on Trump. UNLV said in a statement that Winkelmann’s comments were insensitive, but the university did not say what, if anything, would be done regarding them.

2. The father of the man responsible for the death of 58 in Las Vegas Sunday night wanted to open a church in Las Vegas. Benjamin Paddock represented himself as a self-ordained minister who married couples in the late 1980s. Benjamin was a bank robber and prison escapee, who was famous for being on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list in 1969.

3. A healing garden built to honor those killed in Sunday’s shooting was dedicated last night, after only four days of construction. The garden consists of 58 trees planted for the victims, a remembrance wall, and pictures of each person killed in the attack. The healing garden is located in downtown Las Vegas, on City Center Boulevard, just north of Charelston Boulevard.
