Las Vegas Metropolitan Police are confirming at least 58 people are dead following a shooting at a concert on Sunday.

The attack happened at the Mandalay Bay Resort along the Las Vegas strip.

The shooter opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 from his hotel room on the 32nd floor.

Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo told reporters during a media scrum that the shooter was 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock, a white man and local resident. LVMPD SWAT breached the hotel room and found Paddock dead.

Another 515 people are believed to be injured in what some are calling America’s deadliest shooting. Among the deceased was an off-duty cop while two other off-duty officers were also injured.

 

United States President Donald Trump also went to social media to send his thoughts to the families of the victims.

The shooting is still under investigation.
