Remembering the Route 91 Harvest Festival Shooting's 59 Victims

The 64-year-old made millions from real estate deals, according to his brother; he also owned two planes and several properties across the US, and seemed normal apart from his passion for gambling large sums.

The singer added: "Our first time back onstage will be a very tough and emotional thing for us, but we will all get through it together and honor the people we lost by doing the only thing we know how to do - play our songs for them".

As he was ushered towards a service lift, Mr Folkes saw more armed police with their guns pointed towards the door of a room about six doors down from his. I stood at the sixth-floor window where Oswald is said to have stood, looking down at the streets below-at Dealey Plaza, the triple underpass, the bridge, the live oaks, the rail yard, the grassy knoll.

"Steve was like the dad surrogate".

Eric Paddock lives in Orlando and has been dumbfounded ever since he got the news. The massacre left more than 525 people injured.

"I was wearing my motorbike helmet and initially thought (the sound of the gunfire) was a mini helicopter taking off from the casino", said Marcus Seng. Neither did the mountains of ammunition he was stockpiling, or the bump stocks found in his hotel room that allow semi-automatic rifles to mimic fully automatic weapons.

"On behalf of the entire Route 91 Harvest Family, we are completely devastated by the event that occurred Sunday night". When police entered his hotel room, they discovered Paddock had killed himself. "This world is becoming the kind of place i am afraid to raise my children in".

A member of the FBI leaves the Mandalay Bay hotel following the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S., October 4, 2017. About 5 a.m. on Monday, the police released a statement, saying that they had interviewed Danley and do not believe she was involved with the shooting, Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Also on Sunday's Route 91 Festival lineup: Jake Owen, Luke Combs and Kane Brown.

Authorities believe Paddock shot into a crowd of 22,000 attending the Route 91 Harvest festival from 32 stories above in Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino while country star Jason Aldean performed, CNN reported.

Other details revealed so far suggest that Paddock lived in a retirement community and did not previously serve in the military. Some investigators have suggested Paddock had a history of mental illness, but there is no confirmation of this.

The hail of gunfire stopped when security guards approached Paddock's room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, McMahill said. There has been enough time for hoaxes, conspiracies and politics to spawn. "He had a couple of guns but they were all handguns, legal. Something has changed in this country and in this world lately that is scary to see".

President Donald Trump, who visited Las Vegas victims, first responders and heroes on Wednesday, offered his own analysis of the shooter's motives. A total of 47 guns have been recovered from three locations: Paddock's hotel room and his two Nevada homes in Verdi and Mesquite. From the sky, it's possible to see humans as just one small part of a whole-people next to mountains, roads next to rivers. He called the attack "beyond horrific".
