Jason Aldean cancels shows in wake of Las Vegas shooting

Caleb Keeter, guitarist of the Josh Abbot Band, issued his own statement on Twitter in which the former Second Amendment proponent discusses how the shooting showed him "how wrong he was" and how although the band had legal firearms with them, they were scared to touch them or try to stop the shooter for fear of being mistaken for the shooter.

On Sunday night, Paddock smashed two windows of his suite and opened fire on 22,000 people watching Jason Aldean perform at the outdoor country music event.

A vigil was held in Orlando on Tuesday evening for the victims of the Las Vegas attacks, which surpassed the Pulse nightclub shooting as the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said that more than 10 rifles were found in the room. Also, several pounds of ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer that can be turned into explosives, were in his car, authorities said. The injuries mean Smith is in "constant pain", he told CNN's Erin Burnett. The arsenal "was pretty well hidden", Titus said. "There are some accessories that are available on the market, such as a bump fire stock or a slide fire. And we want to identify that source".

Mesquite police assisted Vegas cops in securing the suspect's home and assisting in the search, a Mesquite PD spokesman told HuffPost. So was a hammer.

He gave no details on what Paddock was up to.

Trump was joined by first lady Melania Trump.

Another officer shouts: "I see muzzle flashes from the Mandalay Bay!" "The blood was just coming out all over the place and she collapsed on the ground".

He reportedly lived with a woman called Marilou Danley, who was out of the country in Japan and did not appear to be involved in the shootings, police said.

Lombardo said there was still nothing clear about the motivation of the shooter, a 64-year-old regular gambler who owned numerous properties and had no known associations with political, radical or hate groups. Police said he killed himself as police entered his hotel room, ending the massacre. Eric said, "He had a couple of guns but they were all handguns, legal".

As the scenes unfold throughout the footage, officers are seen moving together between cover and directing others to get far from the area.

The Nevada native has left at least 50 dead after opening fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival from the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

"Subsequently they approached the room, received gunfire, they backed off and SWAT responded", Lombardo said.

Aldean took the time to thank his fans, friends and family for showing their love since Monday.

The background and motives of Paddock are a key target for police investigations.

"The shooting must not be identifiably gang, drug, or organized crime related", it says.
