More than 50 people have been killed and around 400 injured at an open-air country music festival in Las Vegas in the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
Terror spread through the city's famous strip as 64-year-old gunman Stephen Paddock launched an attack from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, unloading hundreds of rounds of ammunition from a semi-automatic weapon towards concert-goers.
Police confirmed the attacker - described as a "lone wolf" who lived in a remote desert retirement village - was a local resident who was shot dead by officers after raining down rapid fire for several minutes.

The attacker's motive is unknown, but police believe he acted alone. They said he is "not believed to be connected to any militant group", adding: "We have no idea what his belief system was."
The Las Vegas sheriff had been seeking Paddock's female "companion", Marilou Danley, as a "person of interest". After she was located, police said the 62-year-old, who is believed to have lived with Paddock, was not involved in the shooting.

An estimated 22,000 people dived for cover as hundreds of rounds of shots rained down on the crowd during the Route 91 Harvest Festival at shortly after 10pm on Sunday local time (6am Monday BST). Two off-duty police officers were among the dead.
Las Vegas authorities said police found at least eight guns and "a number of" long rifles in the attacker's hotel room after officers shot him dead.

The shooting came towards the end of the three-day festival while headliner Jason Aldean, the American country music singer, was on stage. Mr Aldean posted on Instagram that he and his crew are safe, as he said: "My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved."
