  • People Flee After Reports of Shooter on Vegas Strip

The 29-year-old former cheerleader, who first wrote about the attack in an Instagram post early Monday morning, went into more detail in a post on the same platform on Wednesday.

What is happening in the minds of the American people? They wonder if he had some sort of mental break at the time that drove him to start making plans for mass murder.

"This holds true for the average person and the trained soldier alike", Lee writes. The gunman is also said to have sent his mother a walker as she had trouble walking.

Paddock shot himself as police closed in on his suite.

The three-day Route 91 Harvest festival started Friday. That includes disguising the 23 weapons he had in the room from hotel staff. Thousands of people stayed inside for hours.

'We saw bodies hitting the ground.

He checked into his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino three days before opening fire during the last act of the last night of the Route 91 Harvest festival.

Repeated volleys of gunshots continue while police take positions behind the wall and order bystanders to get away. He got his pilot license and had at least one single-engine aircraft registered in his name.

"Subsequently they approached the room, received gunfire, they backed off and SWAT responded", Lombardo said.

"I feel like out of respect for the victims, their families and our fans, it is the right thing to do", Aldean said in a statement.

He said his brother was "not a normal guy" and "played high stakes video poker". It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night'.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed a letter of condolence to Trump, saying that she had learned of the news from Las Vegas with "shock".

Their father Benjamin Hoskins Paddock was once one of the FBI's most wanted, described as psychopathic with suicidal tendencies.

The United States has experienced many shootings in recent years, but none has as many killed as Las Vegas. He has since packed the ballpark for three more shows and performed twice at Gillette Stadium. He also said an additional 527 people were injured, although he did not specify how many were wounded by gunfire or injured in the chaos that followed.

Officers were called to a music festival near the Mandalay Bay Casino on the US city's famous Strip late Sunday after reports of a mass shooting.

The Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility for the massacre, but US officials said there was no evidence to support the claim. Lombardo said, "We learned from Columbine, PULSE, other mass shootings to focus on taking suspect down instead of focusing on perimeter". This is an active investigation.

"We are shocked and horrified by the violence that took place in Las Vegas". "It sounded like fireworks".

Paddock had passed all the required background checks, said Chris Michel, owner of the Dixie GunWorx in St. George, Utah.
