More than 20 people died and over 100 sustained injuries in a mass shooting attack on an open-air concert near the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas on Sunday night. One gunman was killed by police.
The gunman in the Las Vegas attack has been named as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock from Mesquite, Nevada, according to NBC News.
Police are looking for a woman believed to have accompanied the suspect prior to the Las Vegas shooting.
Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said officers confronted the suspect, believed to be a local resident, on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, just across the street from the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.
Several officers from the Bakersfield Police Department were attending the music concert when the assailant opened fire. One was shot and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
