Festival organisers issue statement following Las Vegas shooting

People started screaming that they were hit...

It is not clear if Ms Danley, a Filipino with Australian citizenship travelling abroad during the massacre, can shed any light on Paddock's motives.

Paddock, 64, a high-stakes gambler and retired accountant, killed himself as authorities stormed his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay hotel casino. Had he [Eric] known about the incident beforehand, he would have definitely stopped his brother from killing down 59 innocent people.

Shortly after, police said they were investigating reports of an "active shooter near/around Mandalay Bay Casino".

The Empire State Building and World Trade Center went dark in honour of the victims.

In a follow-up, Aldean offered an apology - and a call for unity. Room 32-135! The video ironically ends with a view down on the concert area. "The chaos of not knowing where the shots were coming from, or who was shooting them".

- Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines, a law enforcement source said. The weapons were either military grade or modified.

He lived in the property in Babbling Brook Court with Marilou Danley, 62, records show.

But for many, these are shallow gestures.

Authorities say despite a claim that Isis was responsible for the attack, they've determined Paddock had no connection with the international terrorist group.

"We pray for the day evil is banished...may God provide the grieving families with the strength to carry on", Mr Trump said.

Besides the 10 guns found in the hotel room, police discovered 18 firearms, explosives and thousands of rounds of ammunition at the residence in Mesquite, a town 128 km north of Las Vegas. Authorities previously found 42 guns in Paddock's hotel room and at his Mesquite, Nevada, home. It's like he shot us. "I couldn't be more dumbfounded", Eric Paddock said.

Stephen's former brother-in-law Scott Brunoehler remembers him as smart and fun loving. There were bodies all over the ground. The distance from his window to the stage was an estimated 450 metres. Sonny, a registered nurse, was bleeding from the mouth.

Sonny was declared dead at the hospital.

Some of the rifles had scopes, the sheriff said. "But our officers took it upon themselves to act".

Shooter Stephen Paddock lived in a Nevada retirement community.

Despite the quick response, Bueermann and Blair agree that a detailed review of how police responded to Paddock will be essential in planning for - and potentially preventing - similar attacks.

"No affiliation, no religion, no politics".

The victims just kept coming.

"We know that the suspect fired over a dozen or so volleys", he said.

In a public statement, the festival's organisers write: "On behalf of the entire Route 91 Harvest Family, we are completely devastated by the event that occurred Sunday night". "We are all humans and we are all Americans and its time to start acting like it and stand together as ONE!"

"It was chaos - people just running for their lives".

"I still dont know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe", Aldean wrote.

Reached by telephone, Paddock's lawyer at the time, Jared R. Richards, said he could not comment because of client confidentiality concerns.

"There was so many people, just normal citizens, doctors, cops, paramedics, nurses, just off-duty". "He was a guy who had money".
