Las Vegas Concert Shooting Suspect Identified as Stephen Paddock, 64

A gunman has reportedly shot several people at the Mandalay Bay casino in Las Vegas

Neighbors were briefly evacuated for the search.

"I knew immediately that it wasn't fireworks", she said.

The official wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. "I couldn't be more dumbfounded", Eric Paddock said.

The gunman's brother, Eric Paddock, said Stephen Paddock was a big spender at casinos and often received free rooms and meals from the casinos.

Las Vegas police confirmed Wednesday that they have evidence to suggest Stephen Paddock planned to survive and escape after he unleashed gunfire on a crowd of concertgoers Sunday night.

Prior to moving to Mesquite in June of 2016, Paddock had lived in several parts of California and in Henderson, Nevada, since 1990, but had also lived in Reno, Nevada, from 2011 to 2016, and had a Melbourne, Florida, address from 2013 to 2015.

Officers actually reached Paddock's hotel room door on the 32nd floor within 12 minutes of the first shots being fired, "which is phenomenal", the sheriff said.

The person said Paddock was given the room for free because he was a good customer who wagered tens of thousands of dollars each time he visited the casino.

"We ask you to bother the police".

"They didn't want to inconvenience their customer base", Cipriani said.

His movements raised the possibility he was contemplating attacks at those sites.

Former FBI hostage negotiator Clint Van Zandt said Paddock doesn't seem like your typical mass shooter - as he's older and not known to have a mental illness. "He had nothing to do with any political organization, religious organization, no white supremacists, nothing, as far as I know".

He described the wealth of his multimillionaire brother as substantial, said it included real estate and that he managed property for relatives. In one photo, the legs of a body on the floor can be seen.

Paddock and Danley started dating earlier this year, the Daily Mail reported. His wife survived the shooting. "And it always has", Trump said. "We call upon the bonds of citizenship, the ties of community, and the comfort of our common humanity".

Black Bear Diner posted a picture on Monday with the caption: "Did you know we have three Las Vegas locations?"

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told CNBC on Wednesday that the lack of a clear motive was a "surprise" in this mass shooting.

Several pounds of ammonium nitrate, a fertiliser that can be turned into explosives such as those used in the 1995 Oklahoma bombing, were discovered in his car.

He booked rooms with views of the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago in August and the Life Is Beautiful show near the Vegas Strip in late September, officials said.

U.S. Rep. John Faso, R-19, also spoke out about the tragedy.

He concluded his emotional post saying his "heart aches for the Victims and their families of this Senseless act". "They are in our thoughts and prayers".

The remains of a garage door sit on the driveway of Stephen Paddock's home in Mesquite, Nevada. Authorities found weapons and ammunition but could not go into details, according the Mesquite Police Department.

Paddock also had a private pilot's license and two small single-engine planes registered in his name, according to Federal Aviation Administration. "We have to establish what his motivation was first", said Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, when asked why this event has not been labeled domestic terrorism.
