Trump said he planned to travel to Las Vegas on Wednesday to meet with law enforcement personnel, other first responders and relatives of the victims.

Fifty-eight people were killed and 515 injured when a gunman opened fire on an outdoor music festival on Sunday night from the 32nd floor of an adjacent hotel in the Las Vegas Strip. They also found ammonium nitrate, a chemical that can be used in bomb-making, in Paddock's vehicle, said Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo.

Jason Aldean's wife Brittany shared an emotional post detailing her experience during the mass shooting during her husband's show at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night in Las Vegas.

There have been 273 mass shootings in the U.S.so far this year.

At least 10 rifles were found in Paddock's hotel room, where he had been staying for four days, but he is not thought to have been part of any terror group.

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

The attack was clearly planned, Lombardo said.

Detectives have described Paddock as a "lone wolf" and dismissed speculation there were more assailants. His tour will resume Oct. 12 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Trump refrained from addressing the unproven IS claim of responsibility, or calls for gun control and the White House said it would be "premature" to reopen the US debate on tighter gun restrictions.

In one instance, Paddock reportedly won $40,000 on a slot machine, his brother Eric Paddock told the Associated Press.

Shocked survivors, some with blood on their clothing, wandered streets after the shooting, where the flashing lights of the city's gaudy casinos blended with those of emergency vehicles. "The blood was just coming out all over the place and she collapsed on the ground".

The suspect lived in a retirement community in Mesquite, Nevada, about an hour and half from Las Vegas. Aldean continued singing before realizing that it was gunfire, and then ran off stage. Authorities said they believed he acted alone, although his motive was unknown.

Brittany Aldean revealed what was going through her mind as she ducked for cover.
