Las Vegas authorities say 59 people are dead and about 527 injured after a man opened fire on an outdoor concert late Sunday night. The suspect is Stephen Paddock, 64, a white male from Mesquite, NV.

The FBI said there were no apparent links to international terrorist organizations, but about 19 firearms were found in the hotel room from which he fired and 18 additional firearms, explosives, several thousand rounds of ammo were found in Paddock's home. Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said some of the weapons had scopes, and fertilizer and chemicals were found in his car.
