Las Vegas : More than 50 people were killed and dozens injured in the firing at a concert in the Las Vegas Strip of America. After getting the news of a gunman near the Route 91 Harvest Festival, the authorities sent dozens of patrol vehicles to the strip.

Las Vegas police later said that a suspect has been "killed" but did not give much information about this. University Medical Center spokesman Danita Cohen told that 26 people have been admitted to the hospital.

They told that at least two of them died, the condition of 12 remained fragile and the rest were being examined. Witnesses said that during the firing at the place of concert, they saw many injured while fleeing from there.


Some of them later gathered on the underground floor of nearby Tropicana Hotel-Casino. Some officers were taking action from behind their vehicles while the other officers took the rifle and reached within Mendelay Bay Hotel and Casino.

Terror spread through the city's famous strip as 64-year-old gunman Stephen Paddock launched an attack from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, unloading hundreds of rounds of ammunition from a cache of weapons towards concert-goers.

Police confirmed the attacker shot himself dead just as a police SWAT team burst into the hotel room from where he sprayed rapid fire on the crowd for several minutes. Described as a "lone wolf" who lived in a remote desert retirement village, Paddock was holed up with more than 10 guns after he is believed to have checked into the hotel on Thursday.

 
 
The attacker's motive is unknown, but police believe he acted alone. They said he is "not believed to be connected to any militant group" despite a claim of responsibility from Islamic State, adding: "We have no idea what his belief system was." Addressing the nation on Thursday afternoon, US President Donald Trump described the shooting as an "act of pure evil", adding that he would visit emergency services in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

The Las Vegas sheriff had earlier been seeking Paddock's female "companion", Marilou Danley, as a "person of interest". After she was located overseas, police said the 62-year-old - who is believed to have lived with Paddock - was not involved in the shooting.
