Las Vegas Strip massacre is deadliest shooting in US history

Late-night TV hosts decry Las Vegas killings gun laws

Paddock had a private pilot's license and the FAA is gathering his records, according to FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown.

The slain gunman police described as the "sole aggressor" in the mass shooting at a Las Vegas concert has been identified as Stephen Paddock, 64, of nearby Mesquite.

Thirty-six-year-old Kodiak Yazzie said the music stopped temporarily and started up again before another round of pops sent the performers ducking for cover and fleeing the stage.

Law enforcement has no "derogatory information" about Paddock, besides the fact that he received a citation several years ago that was handled in the court system, Lombardo said.

Paddock had checked into the hotel on September 28.

President Donald Trump is extending condolences to the victims of the shooting in Las Vegas and their families. The FBI arrived at Eric Paddock's house while a Sentinel reporter was there.

Officers have also responded to the suspect's home where police said a search warrant will be executed. "We are pretty confident there is no longer a threat".

The Saint-Charles station is the same one where four Americans studying overseas fell victim to acid attacks last month . But officials also took pains to emphasize the circumstances of the attack were far from clear.

The gunman is believed to have opened fire on revelers attending a country music festival in the late hours of Sunday evening [October 1], near the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

Large numbers of police are rushing into the area, locking down all along the famed Las Vegas strip. Witness said tens of thousands of concertgoers screamed and ran for their lives, officials said Monday.

A SWAT team blew open the entry to the 32nd-floor room of the hotel with an explosive and found him dead, police said.

As many as 22,000 people were at the concert. "It sounded like fireworks". "People were standing around, then they hit the floor".

He said the police were searching for a woman named Marilou Danley, his companions and the authorities later said they were confident they had located her.

Las Vegas police say that the shooter, who is dead, was a Las Vegas local.

According to NBCNews.com, the shooting took place during the final night of the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival as headliner Jason Aldean and his band were playing. He described the night as "beyond horrific". The prior mass shooting with the highest death toll was an attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., in June 2016 in which 49 people were killed and 58 injured.
