Who Is Stephen Paddock: The Las Vegas Shooting Suspect?

Jason Aldean: The world has become 'a scary' place

Trump was not ready to suggest answers.

US officials have reacted cautiously to a claim by the Islamic State jihadist group that the shooter, Stephen Craig Paddock, had carried out Sunday night's massacre on its behalf.

Us Weekly reported on Monday, October 2, that Aldean fled the stage and ran for cover once Paddock opened fire on the 22,000 concertgoers.

He then explains some of the vision, which is obscured by an officer wearing a yellow reflective vest.

Country artist Jason Aldean has canceled three upcoming shows out of respect for the victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, he said in a statement.

His photos brought news readers to the heart of the chaos, and were beamed around the world, quickly recognised as some of the most powerful images from America's deadliest mass shooting.

Once inside the room, police found the shooter dead, apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot.

Robert Gardner, an independent security consultant with an office in Las Vegas, said therewould have beenno reason for hotel security to identify Paddock as a threat.

Leaked photographs, which Lombardo's department is investigating, showed scope-mounted assault rifles and a floor covered with expended shells.

But many of the details surrounding those weapons are still unknown.

Originally created with the aim of making it easier for people with disabilities to shoot a gun, bump stocks allow semi-automatic rifles to mimic fully automatic weapons by unleashing an entire large magazine in seconds.

Gardner said there is no reasonable way for hotels and casinos to search guests in an attempt to prevent similar shootings from happening.

Stories of heroism also surfaced.

"They were all crying, and I was too", he told AFP. Getting people checked in, into elevators, and up to their rooms smoothly is a difficult enough feat. Tonight's not your night. Laxalt is a former U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General's Corps member.

Congress did however shelve a controversial plan to make it easier to purchase gun silencers and make it more difficult to classify certain ammunition as "armor piercing".

But in Las Vegas, Trump stayed on message and tried, at times, to elevate his rhetoric.

He said his brother didn't hunt and hardly used his guns.

"He liked to play video poker". He had been convicted of serial bank robbery.

"We're lost", his brother said.

"It takes the worst of America to also see the best of America", said Mansholt, who survived the gunfire. "We will never get over it. We can move forward".

"We know that your sorrow feels endless". While they declined to disclose what it said, they confirmed it was not a suicide note.

From a perch 320 feet above ground in a hotel whose base was about 1,050 feet from the concert venue, Paddock was firing down the 1,098-foot hypotenuse of a right triangle - and would have to adjust his aim for the arc of the bullet over that distance.

The brothers were last in touch in early September, exchanging text messages about power outages after Hurricane Irma slammed into Florida, where their mother still lives.
