More than 20 dead, hundreds injured in Las Vegas shooting

The shooting left at least 58 people dead and 515 injured.

Paddock purchases 33 firearms, mostly rifles, over the course of an 11-month period, according to a spokesperson for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. In the videos provided, the light and gunshot sounds do not match.

"The very first thing that hotels [will consider] is more visible security", Deanna Ting, hospitality editor at travel industry intelligence company Skift, told Business Insider.

A semiautomatic weapon requires one trigger pull for each round fired.

At the hospital, however, Trump deflected a question about whether the United States has a problem with gun violence.

The device basically replaces the gun's shoulder rest.

"He liked everybody to think that he was the guy", John Weinreich said. When someone checks in, and they check in with a bag, that is normal.

People close to the investigation also said that in the weeks before the attack, Paddock transferred a large amount of money - close to $100,000 - to someone in the Philippines, possibly his girlfriend.

"I have never seen a scene like the one I just saw this morning", said Nevada congressman Ruben Kihuen, whose district includes parts of the Las Vegas area, when he visited Sunrise. The local sheriff now says investigators have "a couple good leads" in determining what led to the Sunday night massacre.

The FBI said Paddock had no connection with international militant groups.

The presence of other hotel guests in the rooms surrounding Paddock's meant that police couldn't return fire from the ground, he explained. "This world is becoming the kind of place I am afraid to raise my children in", said Aldean, who is expecting a baby boy with wife Brittany.

Despite the automatic gunfire raining down on the crowd of thousands of fleeing music fans, Mr Becker believed the spectators were panicking at the sound of malfunctioning audio equipment.

Police are still trying to find out why Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on an open-air concert from the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay Hotel.

"It's been hard to process what happened the other night ..." Lombardo would not elaborate on the plan.

Paddock was not known to law enforcement, Mr Lombardo said. "Every single nurse, every single doctor from all over the city came and are assisting a lot of these victims". My heart aches for the victims and their families for this senseless act.

There may also be expertise at work in deciding when to switch rifles, Alphin said.

"Those who have booked tours or are planning to have a tour probably would cancel them for safety concerns", Liu said. I can't put into words the pain and heartache we feel for the ones who are longer with us.

"I know nothing about him personally".

After locating his room, a SWAT team was unable to breach the door before Paddock reportedly committed suicide.

He said he looked up to his older brother as a father figure.

Paddock's brother said Stephen had no background with weaponry, saying: "No religious affiliation, no political affiliation, he just hung out", he told TV networks.
