Jason Aldean cancels weekend gigs in wake of Las Vegas shooting

A former Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officer said Stephen Paddock had been staying at the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino for three days before the shooting took place.

"And he certainly didn't have bellmen bring that up", he said.

Ms Mullan said that emotionally the most difficult moments were when it came time to fill out paperwork for patients known only as Jane or John Doe because they had no identification on them.

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent-in-Charge Jill Snyder said the volume of gun buys would not sound alarm bells at her agency.

Officers found another 19 weapons at his home in an over- 55s retirement complex 80 miles away in the desert town of Mesquite, Nevada. The previous record was 49 killed in the Orlando nightclub shootings.

A semiautomatic weapon requires one trigger pull for each round fired.

The device basically replaces the gun's shoulder rest.

Other pictures from the scene show a neatly stacked pile of ammunition clips, and other rifles piled up on lounge chairs. She says Paddock bought her the airline tickets and then wired her money so she could buy herself a house there.

People close to the investigation also said that in the weeks before the attack, Paddock transferred a large amount of money - close to $100,000 - to someone in the Philippines, possibly his girlfriend.

"Over the last 24 hrs I have gone through lots of emotions". His motives are unknown. Officials played the video at a news conference Tuesday.

Just beyond the shattered room's entrance, an assault rifle can be seen resting on a bipod, which he used as a sniper's perch. "My heart aches for the victims and their families of this senseless act".

President Donald Trump branded the attacker - who raked a crowd with gunfire from a 32nd floor hotel room, leaving 59 dead and at least 527 injured - a "demented man". "We're good at doing that at the schools, and now we have to get good at doing that at hotels and concerts".

Experts cautioned that the group - under pressure in its Syrian and Iraqi heartlands - may be trying to rally its supporters with a false claim. "We have no idea in the world". █ Gunman had interest in video poker, realtyStephen Paddock had a penchant for guns, high-limit video poker and real estate deals. "I think he would have told me".

The death toll, which police emphasised was preliminary, would make the massacre the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

He said Paddock seemed like a nice, normal guy.

Some flights have resumed at the city's McCarran airport after all flights were temporarily grounded on Sunday evening.

"I know nothing about him personally". He said he was aware that his brother had a couple of handguns he kept in a safe, perhaps a long rifle, but no automatic weapons.

More than a dozen victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas hailed from Southern California, and the number continued to rise Tuesday as relatives identified the dead.

The emergency crews used anything to hand as makeshift stretchers, including tables and metal railings normally used to control the crowds, said Mr Hayes.
