Trump Heads to Las Vegas to Pay His Respects After Shooting

What is the Route 91 Harvest music festival? "Do you want to see what the view was from Mandalay Bay?" he captioned the video on Facebook. At least 59 people were killed, and over 530 injured in what is now the deadliest mass shooting in USA history.

"He was the least violent in the family during my childhood", Patrick Paddock, the other brother, said of the shooter.

From most accounts, he does not fit the profile of a mass killer.

"He knew what he wanted to do", he added.

We have no idea what his belief system was.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters the rifles police uncovered range in caliber from.223 to.308, and some were equipped with scopes.

Police are still examining the devices and are unsure if they recorded Paddock's rampage as he rained fire from the 32nd floor window of his room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, though presented no evidence of a connection with the 64-year-old retired accountant and property developer.

"As a result of what happened in Las Vegas this week, we have chose to cancel this coming weekend's shows", Aldean said in a statement.

The person also said investigators are focusing more attention on what the girlfriend of Paddock may have known about the attack.

On at least one point, the brother was mistaken.

Gun smoke from Paddock's shooting set off a fire alarm, allowed police to converge on his location. Lombardo said investigators believe Paddock killed himself.

The sheriff said Paddock was prepared for anybody coming in and take him into custody. The shooter may have been staying in the hotel since Thursday, police said.

A picture has emerged of a gambling-obsessed retiree who was oddly stand-offish to friends and family but had made large amounts of wealth which he pumped back into poker hands, a small collection of investment properties, boat cruises, concerts, two airplanes and regular trips to Las Vegas. However, the White House batted off questions from reporters on Monday, with press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders telling journalists: "there will certainly be a time for that policy discussion to take place, but that's not the place that we're in at this moment".

The media picked up the same line, calling Paddock a lone wolf, even though investigations had just started and his motivations remained unclear.

"He was a sick man, a demented man", US President Donald Trump said.
