Police discovered Las Vegas gunman's hotel location from smoke alarm — Stephen Paddock

Police shut down busy Las Vegas Boulevard, and federal and state authorities converged on the scene.

The concert will take place in an atmosphere of heightened awareness and anxiety.

Law enforcement officials have identified the alleged gunman in Sunday night's mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock.

US police have released footage of the entrance to the killer's room in the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

One camera looked out the peephole on the suite's door.

Assistant sheriff Todd Fasulo said Paddock had 23 guns, some with scopes, in his hotel room.

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock transferred $US100,000 overseas in the days before the attack and placed a camera in a food cart outside his hotel room to warn him of approaching police. It captured the rapid staccato of the gunfire at a fairly close range. "Go that way, get out of here!" Danley flew from Manila, said Maria Antoinette Mangrobang, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Immigration in the Philippines.

Heavily armed police searched Paddock's home Monday in Mesquite, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas near the Arizona border, looking for clues. He killed 58 people and injured nearly 500 before taking his own life.

Paddock amassed his weapons cache over a period of years, purchasing them legally in Nevada, California, Utah, and Texas, officials said.

In one photo, the legs of a dead shooter can be seen on the floor.

They show semiautomatic assault-style rifles on the floor and on furniture. "Time to come together and stop the hate!"

"We usually find something there in the background where they see themselves to be the victims". Authorities previously found 42 guns in Paddock's hotel room and at his Mesquite, Nevada, home. She departed on Sept. 22 then returned three days later on a flight from Hong Kong.

Óscar Anibal Suárez , alcalde de la localidad, informó que los hechos ocurrieron a las 5:45 de la mañana en el barrio La Esperanza .

Shortly after the incident, witnesses recounted the shooting, saying that it seemed like the shots would never end. Yard work was done by gardeners.

"There's all kinds of things that surprise us in each one of these events".

"The second time I met him, he pulled out his keys and he gave me his house key", Judy said. She said she got over him and started doing CPR. One time, he said, Paddock showed Judy's wife his laptop as evidence that he had won $20,000 in an online game.

Heather Melton said she knew he probably was gone, but she wanted to hope.

Meanwhile, Pope Francis expressed his "spiritual closeness" to victims, while he called the attack a "senseless tragedy".

Eric Paddock recalled receiving a recent text from his brother showing "a picture that he won $40,000 on a slot machine". A portion of the Las Vegas Boulevard remains closed as police investigations continue. Paddock's death brings the number of fatalities to 59, he said.

But, of his brother's attack, Paddock said: "This is 100% Steve, did this by himself". Trump has created safe spaces for white supremacists by equating them to those who protest these vermin, even after they have left an innocent woman dead.

'Did I do enough to help?'

There is a magazine next to one weapon. On automatic weapons, the trigger has to be pulled and held only once to fire off several rounds. The crowd was gathered outside Mandalay Bay for a Jason Aldean country music concert.

"On the main floor ... there was no cover - they were all exposed", survivor Dees Mansholt said. "People were shot and trying to get out".

The president had been briefed on the shooting by Chief of Staff John Kelly.

"He didn't have a lot of friends", Paddock continued.

The nurse said she was far from alone.
