Denise Cohen Photos: Full Story & Must-See Details On Shooting Victim

Denise Cohen, 58, was shot dead along with 58 other people on Sunday in Las Vegas in the deadliest shooting in U.S. history. Cohen, a grand-mother of two, was at the Route 91 Harvest Festival to celebrate the 56th birthday of her partner, Derrick “Bo” Taylor, who was also killed at the concert.

The shooting occurred on Sunday at around 10 P.M. when suspected mass shooter 64-year-old Stephan Paddock opened fire from his room on the 32nd floor of a Mandalay Bay hotel, across the street from the concert. He fired down upon the crowd below, causing 59 deaths and 527 injuries. Authorities are still investigating the motive in the shooting, and they are still clueless as to why someone would shoot down so many people.
