  • Authorities recover 42 guns from gunman's hotel room, house

United States president Donald Trump visited Las Vegas on Wednesday, marking the first time since taking office that he has had to confront a major mass shooting.

She is not suspected to have played a role in the attack, but authorities are hoping she will be able to shed light on why Paddock would have opened fire on the crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

The Las Vegas shooting has reignited a debate in Washington and across the country about whether more gun control legislation might have prevented what happened.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, who has called Ms Danley a "person of interest" in the attack, said: "We anticipate some information from her shortly".

Although Trump appeared open on Tuesday to talk about gun-control laws in the future, his administration has declined to discuss the issue in the immediate aftermath of the shooting. Lombardo said after Paddock shot a security guard, he stopped shooting, so officers used the time for planning.

Paddock reportedly reserved a room at the Mandalay Bay hotel using some of her documents.

Asked to characterize his brother, he termed him an average man who "drove down and gambled in Las Vegas".

The visit brought Trump face-to-face with those directly affected by the shooting.

Trump praises doctors, others at Vegas hospital where victims treated: 'Proud to be an American'. The newspaper reports fewer bags were checked Tuesday.

As of late Wednesday, his post had been shared over 260,000 times and had more than 307,000 reactions. This was different than his tactic in Puerto Rico, where almost every visit and stop was on camera.




"I thought the president captured the spirit of America at a time we needed to heal", House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said to reporters at the White House South Portico after getting off the president's helicopter Wednesday night.

"It's a very, very sad day for me, personally", added the president.

Trump was to be joined by first lady Melania Trump.

Trump offered somber remarks about the shooting from the White House on Monday, saying "our unity can not be shattered by evil, our bonds can not be broken by violence".

Trump's trip to Las Vegas follows his Tuesday travel to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.

Richard Vasquez, a former chief of firearms technology for the ATF, said "without a doubt it was automatic fire", but it's hard to determine any more specifics about the weapons used because the videos are shot from so far away and there are lots of gunshot echoes.

At the hospital and in meetings with first responders and volunteers, Trump sought to keep the focus on the loss of loved ones and the heroism of ordinary people who tended to victims and kept the death toll down.

"We need to broaden this to make sure it's covered", Lesser said. And you never want to see it again.

But Trump has shown the propensity to stay on message in speeches like the one he gave on Monday, while being his more off-the-cuff self during visits like the one he will have in Las Vegas. Of the 489 injury victims, 317 have been released.
