  • Gunman Stephen Paddock killed at least 59 people and injured 527 when he opened fire on concertgoers from a hotel room at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on Sunday night

Even though Hawaii residents were on the Strip for the nation's worst mass shooting, many said they would return to Las Vegas.

Debris litters the festival grounds across the street from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on Oct. 3, 2017, in Las Vegas.

"And we want to identify that source".

He said there could also be a genetic component to the slaying: Paddock's father was a bank robber who was on the FBI's most-wanted list in the 1960s and was diagnosed as a psychopath. Almost 90 people were killed in 2015 at a concert in Paris by gunmen inspired by the Islamic State. On automatic weapons, the trigger has to be pulled and held only once to fire off several rounds.

The shooting took place at around 22:30 (05:30 GMT).

The assassination of Sunday is largest with firearms in history of United States.

His name has not been released but he has been identified as a Las Vegas resident. Special mounts designed to fit the underside of a rifle and sit atop camera tripods allow the gunman to fire more accurately while standing.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo said investigators are focussed on four main crime scenes right now: The room at Mandalay Bay hotel from where the gunman shot, the concert event location, the shooter's house in Mesquite, Nevada, and the SWAT teams are standing by at a home in northern Nevada, the CNN reports.

"Something has changed", Aldean posted to Instagram, along with a black and white picture emblazoned with the words "Pray for Las Vegas" against the Strip's skyline.

Meanwhile, investigators are taking a harder look at the shooter's girlfriend and what she might have known about the attack, with the sheriff naming her a "person of interest" and saying the FBI is bringing her back to the US on Wednesday for questioning. Eric Paddock, the shooter's brother, told reporters that his brother had a few hand guns in a safe at home, but not any assault rifles to Eric's knowledge.

Cops have tracked down an Asian gran who travelled to Las Vegas with Paddock.

What is the Route 91 Harvest music festival?

The owner of a gun store in Mesquite said that paddock bought several firearms from him - without mentioning an exact number.

Other acts performing at the festival included Lauren Alaina, Big & Rich, Lee Brice, Kane Brown, Brothers Osborne, Josh Abbott Band, Maren Morris and Brett Young.

"It was the craziest stuff I've ever seen in my entire life", Yazzie said. Again, please do not head down to the Strip at this time.

President Trump, speaking before his trip to hurricane-battered Puerto Rico, focused his comments on the shooter rather than possible gun control legislation.
