Las Vegas shooting at Mandalay Bay Casino hotel
–America is reeling from the worst mass shooting in its history after at least 50 people were killed and more than 200 wounded at a country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Police say the shooter was 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, described as a local man, who opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas Village from a room across the street in the Mandalay Bay Hotel shortly after 10pm.
Officers say Paddock was shot and killed after they breached a room in the hotel, where he had stashed an ‘arsenal’ of weapons used during the massacre.
Investigators are now raiding the Mesquite home he shared with Marilou Danley, described as his ‘companion’ and a person of interest. Police say they have located Danley, but didn’t specify whether she was in custody.
