The Las Vegas massacre

Breaking News graphic

The brother of Stephen Paddock, 64, said he's "completely dumbfounded" by the shooting at a country music concert Sunday night, the deadliest in modern USA history. At first they did not know where the shots were coming from.

He said Paddock took his own life moments before a SWAT team entered the22 room.

At a 1 p.m. news conference, Sheriff Joe Lombardo told reporters the22 number of people killed remains 58, while the22 number of injured stands at about 527.

The gunman in the mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip on October 2, 2017, has been identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Monday morning.

When Paddock checked into the Mandalay Bay on September 28, he specifically requested an upper-floor room with a view of the Route 91 Harvest music festival, according to a person who has seen hotel records turned over to investigators and spoke on condition of anonymity.

A family assistance center also is operating at the22 Las Vegas Convention Center to help family members of victims locate the22ir loved ones. Lombardo said it is an ongoing investigation and assured that the investigation into the worst mass shooting in USA history is not ended with the death of Paddock.

Investigators say she was in the Philippines on Sunday night when Stephen Paddock sprayed bullets for at least nine minutes from the 32nd story of the Mandalay Bay on a crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival below.

One image appears to show an assault rifle with a modified stock, allowing the shooter to fire at near-automatic speed.

Lombardo says his department is working on helping people who attended Sunday night's concert get personal items back that were left at the scene.

"This individual is a lone wolf and I don't know how it could have been prevented", he said earlier in the day. Among his weapons were an AR-15, an AK-47, four Daniel Defense DDM4 rifles, three FN-15s and more.

A police official in Manila and a law enforcement official in the United States, both speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters that Danley left the Philippines unescorted but was being met by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents in Los Angeles.

Additionally, her sisters said Paddock wired Danley $127,000, without elaborating.

Authorities are still trying to figure out what motivated Paddock, who has no evident criminal history, to carry out the shooting.

Former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who survived a shooting six years ago, called for political leaders in Washington to introduce tougher gun laws following the Las Vegas attack.

"Good for them - no, we have no evidence of that".
