He also canceled a shows scheduled for Saturday night at the Mattress Firm Amphitheatre in Chula Vista.

Stephen Paddock killed nearly 60 people and wounded hundreds more as he opened fire from the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel-casino onto a crowd at a country music concert.

More than 50 people were killed and over 500 individuals were injured by a gunman, according to an article by AP News and several other news outlets. The department, in a statement, said that she will be greatly missed.

Trump will visit Las Vegas Wednesday, but the White House has rebuffed calls to reopen the fraught US debate on gun control in the latest atrocity's wake.

"Shoes, baby strollers, chairs, sunglasses, purses".

Big players get perks so casinos might not want to hassle them, said consultant C. David Shephard, a former security director at The Venetian. "There were blood stains everywhere".

The weekend before the massacre, he rented a room through Airbnb at the 21-story Ogden condominiums in downtown Las Vegas and stayed there during a music festival below that included Chance the Rapper, Muse, Lorde and Blink-182.

However, The Associated Press reports that a 59th victim has died Tuesday.

Sun Chao, manager of Golden Eagle Travel USA, a Chinese travel agency headquartered in New York with a branch in Los Angeles, told China Daily that the travel agency had more than 40 Chinese tourists and guides in Las Vegas on Sunday night when the shooting happened. "The old 'see something, say something' works in all industries". That brings the deaths that include the shooter up to 60.

It is safe to say that it is not terrorism that is the biggest threat to public safety in the US, but the country's gun culture. "I'm pretty sure he evaluated everything that he did in his actions". "They wanted to help others because they saw people going down all over". "I don't think so".

Paddock, the son of a "psychopathic" bank robber, checked into the hotel last Thursday, three days before the shooting, at the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip. Steady nerves and planning are a better explanation for the casualty rate, he said.

Trump also praised Las Vegas police, saying they had done an "incredible job". "We are all humans and we are all Americans and its time to start acting like it and stand together as ONE!"

On the issue of gun control, the president said: "We'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by".

The massacre started around 10 p.m. Sunday at the Route 91 Harvest festival, Sheriff Lombardo said.

As of early Tuesday, authorities hadn't disclosed the specific type of weapons the gunman used during the attack. It is time for the US to look inward and acknowledge they have a gun problem.

Tonight the FBI said it had found no evidence linking Paddock to international terrorism despite a claim by Islamic State he was a soldier who had recently converted to Islam.

Concert-goers described scenes of horror and heroism. "This world is becoming the kind of place i am afraid to raise my children in".
