Photos: 50 Dead And 200 Injured In Deadliest Ever US Gun Attack, As Gunman Opens Fire On Packed Vegas Music Festival

More than 50 people have been killed and at least 200 injured at an open-air country music festival in Las Vegas in the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

Terror spread through the city's famous strip as 64-year-old gunman Stephen Paddock launched an attack from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, unloading hundreds of rounds of ammunition from a semi-automatic weapon towards concert-goers.

Police confirmed the attacker - described as a "lone wolf" who lived in a remote desert retirement village - was a local resident who was shot dead by officers after raining down rapid fire for several minutes.

The attacker's motive is unknown, but police believe he acted alone. They said he is "not believed to be connected to any militant group", adding: "We have no idea what his belief system was."
