Las Vegas, NV – At least 50 people have been killed and more than 400 injured following a mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday night (October 1).

A gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel toward concertgoers attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival on the Strip. The shooter was found dead in his hotel room from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The first shots were fired shortly after 10 p.m. local time.

The suspected gunman has been named as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nevada. The incident has been described as a “lone wolf” attack.

The authorities have yet to comment about a possible motive.

“We have no idea what his belief system was,” Sheriff Joe Lombardo of Clark County, Nevada said.

In a tweet posted just after 7 a.m. EST, President Donald Trump offered his “warmest condolences and sympathies” to those affected.

Barack Obama also took to Twitter to offer his thoughts to the victims.

As of publishing, the death toll currently stands at more than 50, with more than 400 injured. This makes it the deadliest mass shooting in recent U.S. history.

Last year, 49 people were killed at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

A number of Hip Hop notables have taken to social media to offer their condolences and messages of support to those affected.

HipHopDX extends its condolences to all those affected.
