People attending the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival crouch down as a gunman opens fire from the 32nd floor of a hotel

When a shooter began firing Sunday night at concertgoers at the Route 91 Festival, Las Vegas police could see the gunfire coming from the Mandalay Bay Hotel, but they weren't sure of his exact location.

The shooter was reportedly found dead in his room on the 32nd floor of his hotel room where he launched the attack, the sheriff said.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., who was gravely wounded by the gunman who attacked Republicans at the baseball practice in June, called the Las Vegas attack an "act of pure evil", and thanked those who responded and aided the victims.

Meantime, it was revealed that Stephen Paddock's father, Benjamin Hoskins Paddock, was on the FBI's most wanted list in the 1970s. Las Vegas is 112 and had slot tournaments, data conferences and a 15-minute wedding ceremony scheduled for Kris and Jodie in Mandalay Bay's chapel. Lombardo asked. "We have to try to 'what if' these situations when we train and make sure we have the proper response".

Eric Paddock said his brother often gambled in tens of thousands of dollars.

"You just didn't know what to do", Akiyoshi said. Among the latest: Charleston Hartfield of Nevada; Stacee Etcheber of California; Christopher Roybal of Colorado; Hannah Ahlers of California; and Jordan McIldoon of British Columbia, Canada.

"They're shooting at us, stay down, stay down", one officer comments.

Stephen Paddock lived in Melbourne, a city on Florida's east-central Space Coast, until 2015, officials said.

What the couple had in common was a propensity for high-stakes gambling.

Relatives also said Paddock had frequently visited Las Vegas to gamble and take in concerts.

The avid gambler who according to his brother made a small fortune investing in real estate had been staying there since Thursday and had busted out windows to create his sniper's perch roughly 500 yards from the concert grounds.

Barack Obama wept as he tried to soothe the nation after the 2012 Sandy Hook primary school shooting, George W. Bush told Americans that the "nation grieves" after a similar outrage at Virginia Tech university.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said, "We have no investigative information or background associated with this individual that is derogatory". Law enforcement officials have not released details about the types of weapons that were used or whether they were obtained legally.

Authorities said no connection has been found between the gunman and any international terrorist group.

The gunman's brother, Eric Paddock, said he was "completely befuddled" by his brother's actions.

The nurse said she was far from alone.

The mish-mash of media manipulation shows clips from Vegas and an old recording from ISIS pin-up boy Jihadi John, who was blasted off the face of the earth.

"What we can offer is our experience", Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said Tuesday, pointing to a 1996 gun buyback and ban on semi-automatic and automatic weapons.

In 2012, Paddock sued the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Resorts in Nevada, saying he slipped and fell on a wet floor there. Counseling services were available in a room labeled "Bayside C" at the casino's convention center.

President Donald Trump tweeted: "My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting".

"A team of six officers that approached security, they went up the elevators after discussing the situation with the security and obtaining intelligence", Lombardo said.

The attack was a threat police could not have prepared for, McMahill said.

More than three dozen of the 58 people killed have been publicly identified.

It felt like eternity.

"These folks were attacked by a man from 32 stories up with automatic rifle fire and so I don't really know how you plan for that". Hector Salas tweeted. "Likely more than 1000 people waiting in line to donate blood".

Bonnie Brenner was in the Mandalay casino at 2 a.m. Tuesday, tapping the buttons on a slot machine called Red Hot Jackpot, like nothing had happened, even though everything had happened.
