"We are now cooperating with the ongoing investigation by local and federal law enforcement in any way we can".

"Again, we would like to send our thoughts and prayers to everyone impacted by this tragedy".

The 64-year-old suspect, Stephen Paddock, on Sunday night shot at a musical concert near Mandalay Bey hotel attended by thousands of people. Approximately 90 minutes after the shooting began, police breached the door of Paddock's hotel room to find that he had committed suicide. We are looking into him very seriously.

Ms Sheath added: "I mean we just feel really lucky that we feel like we're really lucky that we were in a good place that we could get out so quickly, just really lucky we could choose a good escape route, and made it out OK".

Authorities were able to locate the shooter because the smoke from his guns set the fire alarm off.

Paddock killed 59 people and wounded hundreds more at a country music festival near his hotel.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo updates the death toll to 59 killed and 527 injured during a press conference at the Metropolitan Police Department.

The man said it took "a while" to get his friend, who had three wounds to the chest, to safety.

He ordered flags across the country to fly at half-staff and will go to Las Vegas on Wednesday to meet with first responders and console the victims and their families. They think he acted alone. "It shows what true professionalism is all about".

"What Congress can do, what Congress must do, is pass laws to keep our citizens safe", Schumer said on the floor of the Senate Monday, adding that action "starts with laws that help prevent guns, especially the most risky guns, from falling into the wrong hands".

Investigators believe the shooting, the most deadly in modern United States history, was a "lone wolf" attack, and say they do not have any information to lead them to suspect there were more assailants.

Police there told CBS News the suspect was white, had been living in a retirement community and hadn't had any run-ins with law enforcement. A motive is yet to be determined. So we try to do it every night like that'. Something has changed in this country and in this world lately that is scary to see.

The Washington Post reports the National Rifle Association donated $74,460 to the campaigns of MI congressmen.

Las Vegas Metro Police and medical workers stage in the intersection of Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard South after a mass shooting at a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada, US. "And this isn't a time for us to go after individuals or organizations".
