50 killed in Las Vegas shooting

At least 50 people have been killed and another 200 have been wounded in a mass shooting at a Las Vegas concert, BBC reported.

A gunman, named Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel towards an open-air music festival.

He was shot dead by officers in the hotel where a number of guns were found.

US President Donald Trump tweeted his “warmest condolences and sympathies” to the victims and their families, and called the shooting “terrible”.

The attack is the worst mass shooting in recent US history.

The attack is the worst mass shooting in recent US history.
Witnesses reported that hundreds of shots were fired.
Hundreds of people fled the scene and the sound of what appeared to be prolonged automatic gunfire could be heard on videos posted on social media.
Many hotels on the Las Vegas strip close to the scene remained on police lockdown and parts of Las Vegas Boulevard were shut.
