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.
Police have warned that the death toll may continue to rise.
According to the police, the shooter acted alone and had no known connection to a militant group. They are searching for another person of interest, a woman named Marilou Danley.
