At least 59 people are dead after a gunman opened fire at the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas – the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
The number of people wounded in the unprecedented hail of gunfire was listed at 527.
The 64-year-old shooter, Stephen Paddock, killed himself after spraying bullets through broken windows in two hotel rooms on the 32nd floor.
The first victims have been identified, and they include a hero police officer, a school secretary and an apprentice on holiday.
Meanwhile, the gunman’s brother has told of his family’s shock, saying: “Something happened, he snapped or something.”
It has emerged that Paddock, a “wealthy” real estate investor who lived in a retirement community, had at least 20 guns in the hotel rooms, including two rifles with scopes on tripods positioned at the broken windows. (Mirror)
