Inside Stephen Paddock's community — Las Vegas shooting

20 Dead, More Than 100 Injured In Las Vegas Mass Shooting

Paddock's brother, Eric, told US media outlets at his home in Central Florida that the shooting came as a complete surprise to him.

The shooter was reportedly found dead in his room on the 32nd floor of his hotel room where he launched the attack, the sheriff said. He said the gunfire went on for an extended period of time. He has a 19-year-old daughter and had a dog named Jasper. That could include putting up barriers to block the shooter or turning off the lights.

The wealthy retiree previously managed an apartment complex called Central Park in Texas, before moving to Nevada. Some hid behind concession stands or crawled under parked cars.

Now it was 10 p.m. Sunday and the 22,000 concertgoers who remained were there to end their jamboree with Jason Aldean, the final act. Then the shooting resumed about half a minute later. "One man. One man did this". "It's like an asteroid just fell on top of our family.there is no reason we can imagine why Stephen would do something like this". It makes you think twice, because you could be targeted. The carnage appears to have been well planned and executed by one man, a local resident, using at least one fully automatic rifle. He killed 14 people and wounded at least 30.

Some of the injured were hit by shrapnel.

"There were people everywhere screaming, crying, throwing up and jumping the fences", she said.

Authorities believe Paddock acted alone.

"It was gunshots and everyone was running".

"What transpired in Las Vegas and what happened in Charlottesville was domestic terrorism", said Bellamy.

Those who were fortunate enough to make it out alive may never be quite the same.

"We are likely better served by focusing on issues like background checks that immediately get more Republican support", Murphy said.

This is unbelievable! Las Vegas Blvd is shut down at Tropicana!

In its claim of responsibility, the Islamic State group said the gunman was "a soldier" who had converted to Islam months ago. But will he do it?

Video of the shooting showed thousands of concert-goers fleeing the venue, causing stampedes as fans ran for cover. His father Benjamin Paddock was on the FBI's "10 Most Wanted List" for a short time after he escaped prison.

"There's extra police around, with a few more in the lobby of our hotel".

"We are continuing with the safety of this community", Sheriff Lombardo said during a press conference on Tuesday.

Public records point to an itinerant existence across the American West and southeast, having lived in Florida, California and other parts of Nevada. Trump's stature with the gun-rights activists who helped him win the presidency opens the door for him to argue for more gun control. He has been identified as 64-year old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nevada.

Interstate 15 was briefly closed, and flights at McCarran International Airport were suspended for a while. "Trying to get to their loved ones that had gotten hit", said Shaun Topper. That could yield a wealth of material for investigators.

It comes down to this: The way you respond will greatly impact the way your children learn to cope, understand, and react to their surroundings. "Who would have ever imagined this situation", Lombardo said of the mass shooting.

Law enforcement said the gunman had been at the hotel since Thursday, making many wonder how he had been able to bring so many guns in in the first place.

He concluded his address by saying he and the First Lady, Melania Trump, were praying for the victims and for the unity and peace of the country.

What do we know of the gunman?

More than 104 of the injured were admitted to University Medical Center, where 12 were in critical condition.
