At least 58 people have been killed and hundreds injured in a mass shooting at a Las Vegas concert.
A gunman, named as 64-year-old Nevada resident Stephen Paddock, opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel towards an open-air music festival attended by 22,000.
He killed himself as police stormed the room where 10 guns were found.
Investigators have found no link to international terrorism, despite a claim from so-called Islamic State.
FBI Special Agent Aaron Rouse told a news conference: “We have determined at this point no connection to an international terrorist organization.”
Islamic State (IS) had claimed to be behind the attack, saying that Paddock had converted to Islam some months ago
But the group provided no evidence for this and has made unsubstantiated claims in the past.
