According to reporting by the Associated Press, a gunman - later identified as Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nev. - perched on the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas casino unleashed a hail of bullets on an outdoor country music festival below, killing at least 50 people as tens of thousands of concertgoers screamed and ran for their lives. It was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. More than 400 other victims were taken to the hospital, authorities said.

SWAT teams using explosives stormed the gunman’s hotel room and found he had killed himself, authorities said. He had as many as 10 guns with him, including rifles. There was no immediate word on the motive for the bloodbath.
