Weapons cache found at Las Vegas shooter's house

In a hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, one man smashed out the windows and opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 people attending a music festival.

President Trump branded the attack by gunman Stephen Paddock an 'act of pure evil' and many UK papers carry stories of people who ran for their lives to reach safety.

The gunman's motive remains unclear, but the fact that he had these weapons available showed that the shooting was premeditated, Lombardo said.

Aldean was in the middle of a song when the shooting began.

"Good for them - no, we have no evidence of that". And as a matter of fact it would be just the opposite.

"You could hear it ringing off the top of the rafters of the stage". Someone you might see nursing a drink alone at a bar. She said she made her way out of the venue amid "organized chaos".

Is it possible to be numb and outraged at the same time? It was all a fiasco after that. Cars were turning right to avoid the (Las Vegas) Strip.

Police have identified the shooter as Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada, and have said he killed himself after the shooting.

Lombardo issued a plea for blood donations as local hospitals dealt with the wounded.

He told the Orlando Sentinel that his and Stephens father was Benjamin Hoskins Paddock, a career criminal and convicted bank robber.

The numbers of wounded needing immediate attention were overwhelming, and Coates said this may have led to several deaths that could have been avoided had it not been for the mass influx of patients.

Paddock lived in Mesquite, Nev., a city 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

Eric Paddock said he knew his brother had firearms.

Officers found an arsenal of at least 20 rifles inside the hotel room, the New York Times reported.

The room, which goes for $590, was given to Paddock free because he was a good customer who wagered tens of thousands of dollars each time he visited the casino, the person said. The community includes an 18-hole golf course, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a recreation center.

Aldean has two children and his wife is pregnant with their third. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, he currently makes a $161,000 salary. The gunman fired off a dozen or so volleys while shooting "off and on" during the22 10-minute period.

Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak told reporters Tuesday that a GoFundMe campaign started yesterday has received more than $3.7 million of a targeted $4.5 million. "So, was he using that as a vehicle-borne explosive device?" "I don't believe a human can do that with his finger". "Nothing. I can't even make something up".

The Catalan government said it wanted to avoid a "traumatic split" from Spain and appealed to the EU to mediate with Madrid in signs it was holding back from an early declaration of independence after Sunday's secession referendum. Police frantically tried to locate him and determine whether the gunfire was coming from Mandalay Bay or the neighboring Luxor hotel. Victims fell to the ground, while others fled in panic.

"Speechless, pray for my home", Las Vegas native and 2016 Olympics US high jumper Vashti Cunningham wrote on Twitter.

Kravitz told the National Law Journal his firm has represented Mandalay Bay, and he wouldn't be surprised if his firm was retained in any lawsuits over the shooting.

Trump ordered flags to fly at half mast and held a moment of silence alongside Vice President Mike Pence and their wives outside the White House.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said spoke with Lombardo. The sound of people running on the bleachers added to the confusion, and Schneider thought the concert was being invaded with multiple shooters.
