Concert-goers reported seeing muzzle flashes from the upper floors of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across Las Vegas Boulevard from the country music festival and the sound of what they described as automatic gun fire. "I didn't know they were coming from Mandalay Bay at all", Taylor said.

Mr Cipriani, who says his Robin Hood nickname is down to his habit of donating winnings to poor people, previous hit headlines after it was revealed he is banned from every single casino. "We had to evaluate each floor moving up".

"They were quite aggressive but they have to be in that situation".

One off-duty police officer was among those killed, and another two on duty officers were injured, Las Vegas police said in a statement.

"So we just ran fast and we scaled fences".

Investigators were evaluating multiple crime scenes, including the concert site, Paddock's hotel suite, his home in Mesquite, Nevada, and another home in Reno.

"I was told that they got to the room because of the smoke alarms going off, because there's so much gunfire in the room", Dolunt said.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Stephen Paddock, 64, was found dead by officers who stormed his 32nd-floor room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

He converted to Islam several months ago, the group said. "There are reports her ID was used for booking the hotel or some such detail".

He added: "We're very sad about the news of this tragedy".
