WORST MASS SHOOTING IN US HISTORY: Las Vegas death toll rises to 50+ as US media name suspect

AMERICA has suffered its WORST mass shooting in history after 58 people were killed in a gun horror close to the Las Vegas strip.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of Clark County told reporters that more than 58 people were killed and more than 500 injured.

He identified the gunman as Stephen Paddock, 64 following NBC News naming the suspect.

Lombardo said the police were seeking “a companion” named Marilou Danley, a woman he described as Asian and 4-foot-11, later reports suggested they had found her location.

Video of the shooting captured NINE seconds of rapid-fire, continuous bursts, followed by THIRTY-SEVEN seconds of silence from the weapon amid panicked screaming. The barrage of gunfire then erupted again in at least TWO more rounds, both shorter than the first.

In the confusion after the shooting, the police also descended on the Ali Baba Restaurant, about a 10-minute drive from the Mandalay Bay, and they also investigated reports of a shooting at the New York-New York Hotel and Casino, not far from the concert ground.

The police reported clearing out the Mandalay Bay’s 29th floor and working their way up to the 32nd floor. A police Twitter post described reports of an “active shooter” near or around the Mandalay Bay casino.
