At least 50 people were killed and more than 400 injured in the deadliest shooting in American history. The mass shooting took place at a concert in Las Vegas on Sunday evening. The shooter opened fire on the crowd of concert-goers from the 32nd floor of a hotel. The man, identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, committed suicide before police arrived.
