At this time there is in excess of 50 deceased and over 200 injured individuals.

The gunman fired from the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas Strip casino into an open-air music festival nearby. The country musical festival, Route 91 Harvest, was attended by 40,000.

Police said the attacker was shot and killed by officers. Earlier, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department described the suspect as being a local man who acted alone.

Police confirmed the attacker as Stephen Paddock, 64. Police did not publicly identify the shooter or offer any information on a potential motive.

Police earlier said they were looking to question a woman named Marilou Danley in relation to the investigation. However, CNN and Fox News have reported police forces now regard her as unrelated to the case.

Police have also located two cars thought to have belonged to the dead suspect.

Donald Trump tweeted: “My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!”
