At least 50 people have been confirmed dead following a mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The fuel tanks were in the line of sight during Mr Paddock's attack on concert-goers, but it is not known if he was specifically targeting the containers.

Trump says authorities are "learning a lot more" about the gunman in the shooting, which killed 59 people and injured more than 500 during an outdoor Las Vegas concert.

"A little more than two weeks ago Stephen told me he had found a cheap ticket for me to the Philippines and he wanted to me to take a trip home to see my family; like all Filipinos overseas I was excited to go home and see family and friends".

The shooting - the worst in modern USA history - has sparked debate over United States gun laws, but President Donald Trump has said the discussion over what, if anything, needs to be done was "not for now", the BBC report said.

One week earlier, he had rented an apartment overlooking another open-air music festival in downtown Las Vegas. He eventually killed himself before a SWAT team arrived. "'I'm paying for your drink, just like I'm paying for you'".

"I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man", Danley said Wednesday in a statement through her lawyer, Matthew Lombard. Officials believe he acted alone, though no motive was revealed as of Wednesday. She said it never occurred to her than he was planning violence.

Danley, who 7 News reports moved to the U.S.in 1989, landed at Los Angeles International Airport late Tuesday and was met by federal agents.

Suarez said the Federal Bureau of Investigation considered Danley a "person of interest", but not necessarily a suspect. Reportedly, the pictures were taken from the hotel room.

The attack, now the deadliest mass shooting in US history, came from the 32nd floor balcony of a Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino hotel room. Forty-seven firearms belonging to the shooter were recovered from three different locations including the hotel room at Mandalay Bay, residences in Verde and Mesquite, Nevada.

"He would glare down at her and say - with a mean attitude - 'You don't need my casino card for this, '" Mendoza told the Times.
