The shooting occurred on the Las Vegas strip at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. Country music singer Jason Aldean was performing when the gunfire broke out.
The suspected gunman has been identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock.
Paddock, a Nevada resident, was killed at the resort, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said.
Police think Paddock was a “lone wolf” attacker, according to The Washington Post.
Shots were fired while Aldean was performing at the end of the three-day concert event, which reportedly draws 30,000 attendees.
