Things to know about the Las Vegas gunman — Stephen Paddock

People run from the Route 91 Harvest country music festival

Several of the theaters along Las Vegas' famed Strip of hotels and casinos remained open, offering free entertainment.

In early August, Paddock booked a room at Chicago's 21-story Blackstone Hotel that overlooked the park where the Lollapalooza music festival was being held, a law enforcement official said Thursday.

Yet, he holds a unique status here because of his participation in the Boston Strong concert.

"We went into the hotel and they started shutting down casinos", Todd Price, a guest of Mandalay Bay, told CNN.

Paddock shot himself as police closed in on his suite.

Trump refrained from addressing the unproven IS claim of responsibility, or calls for gun control and the White House said it would be "premature" to reopen the US debate on tighter gun restrictions.

The shooter, later identified as Mesquite, Nevada, resident Stephen Paddock, was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound when police broke into his hotel room door.

In fact Paddock still owed £204 ($270) in court fees when he killed 59 people and injured 527 more in a terrifying 10-minute long attack.

Most IS attacks have been carried out by much younger men. There's just nothing. We have nothing to give you.

At the 2013 event to raise money for the victims of the Marathon bombings, Aldean shared the TD Garden stage with such local icons as Aerosmith, J. Geils Band and James Taylor.

But even before that, he was well-known, and well-loved, in Massachusetts.

The Islamic State group, without providing evidence, claimed that Paddock was one of its "soldiers", who went by the nom de guerre Abu Abdel Bar al-Amriki - "The American". "This world is becoming the kind of place I am afraid to raise my children in", his post read, in part.

A poster from back in the day shared by New York Times underlined that Paddock "reportedly has suicidal tendencies and should be considered armed and very dangerous" and was reportedly diagnosed with psychopathy.

CMT's philanthropic initiative CMT One Country is supporting the Red Cross in the wake of this tragedy.

She then acknowledged, "We were the lucky ones". "People were just dropping to the ground", said one of the concert-goers.

But for many, these are shallow gestures.

He branded Paddock "sick and demented" a day after condemning the attack as "pure evil".

On Tuesday, the "Dirt Road Anthem" singer shared the news in a statement to fans. "That didn't happen with him". Paddock, 64, killed himself as authorities closed in on him in his hotel room.

His movements raised the possibility he was contemplating attacks at those sites. "It sounded like fireworks". Officers responding at the scene had reported over the radio facing fully automatic fire from the shooter's high vantage point.

"That is the only way we will ever get this country to be better than it has ever been, but we have to start now".

"He never gave any indication or reason to believe he was unstable or unfit at any time", Sullivan said.
