Latvia sends condolences to U.S. following Las Vegas massacre

Latvian officials sent condolences to their counterparts in the United States October 2 following an appalling massacre in Las Vegas, Nevada.

At least 58 people were killed by a heavily-armed gunman in the mass shooting with more than 500 injured, some seriously.

President Raimonds Vejonis led the chorus of support for the U.S.

Foreign minister Edgars Rinkevics followed suit, along with Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis.

U.S. law enforcement officers have identified the perpetrator of the outrage as 64-year-old Nevadan Stephen Paddock but his motives for carrying out the attack are not yet clear.

We at LSM also add our condolences to readers in the U.S.
