GETTY HORROR 52 people have died in a mass shooting in Las Vegas


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.

Repeated volleys of gunshots continue while police take positions behind the wall and order bystanders to get away.

Around 2:40 p.m., the president and vice president accompanied by their wives and White House staff, held a moment of silence on the South Lawn to honor victims of the shooting. One semiautomatic rifle can be seen with a scope and a barrel support mount, along with a stack of magazines and shell casings.

Court records also reveal that Paddock sued the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Resorts five years ago, claiming that he suffered injuries after he slipped and fell at the Las Vegas Strip hotel.

More than 525 people were injured - some by gunfire or shrapnel, some trampled - in the pandemonium adjacent to the Las Vegas Strip as police scrambled to locate the assailant.

Posting on social media, Aldean expressed his grief and confusion over the tragedy, the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Paddock took his own life as police breached his room. "It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night". Paddock fatally shot himself before a SWAT team breached his door about 72 minutes after the first shots were fired.

UBS says there is currently a 3 hour wait at the Charleston location, Las Vegas television station KTNV reported.

More than 22,000 people were gathered for the Route 91 Harvest Festival where country music star Jason Aldean was performing. He was uncertain whether Campos was armed at the time.

The footage aired during a Tuesday press conference shows officers ducking for cover and directing those nearby to do the same and flee the area.

Paddock's brother said he was "not an avid gun guy" and claimed he had become a multi-millionaire through real estate investments. We have, on the 32nd floor, the room at the Mandalay Bay. He was later found dead in the room, according to police. She is currently out of the country. "It just kept going on", said Steve Smith, a 45-year-old visitor from Phoenix, Arizona, who had flown in for the concert.

Police had located two cars that belonged to the suspect and also believed they had located the woman.
