The sole shooter at the Route 91 Harvest Festival has been confirmed dead, according to Las Vegas authorities.
CNN reports that the gunman fired from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, where Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said officers confronted the suspect. Authorities say the man, who has been identified as 64-year-old white male Stephen Paddock, is dead, reports ABC News. Lombardo stated that the gunman was a "lone actor" in the shooting.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police say Paddock was a local resident. The LVMPD had tweeted that they were searching for two vehicles associated with the shooter, as well as a person of interest (believed to be the suspect's girlfriend), an Asian-American female named Marilou Danley. In a second police briefing, Lombardo said they are confident they located the vehicles and Danley, but it's still unclear as to whether she is in custody.
