During the closing performance by singer Jason Aldean at a packed outdoor concert, a gunman located on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino across Las Vegas Boulevard opened fire into the festival crowd.

Fifty people are dead and more than 400 people were taken to local hospitals. However, Police Sheriff Joe Lombardo said at a press briefing that a woman linked to the attacker is still considered a person of interest in the investigation and will be contacted upon her return to the United States.

Multiple accounts indicate that the only person Paddock was close to was his 62-year-old live-in girlfriend, Marilou Danley.

Authorities in the US, Philippines and Australia have been involved in the search for Danley, in the hope she might be able to shed some light on the motive behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

A day after that, the leader of Catalonia accused the king of rejecting the mediator granted him by the Constitution. The speaker of Catalan's parliament blasted back that the constitutional court's ruling harms freedom of expression.

"I can tell you I'm very troubled by it", he said.

Some time passed before SWAT breached the door and entered the room, but during that time the shooting had stopped, he said.

Twelve bump fire stocks were found on firearms recovered from Paddock's hotel room, said Jill Snyder, the special agent in charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' San Francisco field office. By holding the pistol grip with one hand and pushing forward on the barrel with the other, the shooter's finger comes in contact with the trigger.

Another 26 guns were found at two of Paddock's homes in Nevada.

Lombardo said at least 50 people were killed in what is now the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, and more than 400 were treated for injuries at local hospitals.

Sunday night's shooting spree in Las Vegas was meticulously planned for some time, the Clark County sheriff said Tuesday, expressing frustration that no one appeared to have noticed the gunman's unusual actions and alerted authorities.
