LAS VEGAS — Police say at least 50 people are dead and more than 400 have been taken to area hospitals after a shooting at a country concert in Nevada.

Authorities identified the gunman as Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite. They say he took his own life before they entered his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo tells reporters officers are entering Paddock’s home now to execute a search warrant. They hope to find clues to a motive along with more information about Paddock himself, who has no known ties to terrorist groups.

This story is developing and will be updated throughout the day.
