Las Vegas shooting, deadliest in modern US history

Detectives have described Paddock as a "lone wolf" and dismissed speculation there were more assailants.

Fifty-nine people were killed and 500 injured. @commanderinfunk wrote, one of many tweets criticising the singer's actions.

Islamic State has tried to claim credit but police say there is no link to any extremist group.

The site of the country music festival was located across Las Vegas Boulevard.
