The gunman in the shooting incident at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas has been identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock.

Paddock, a white male local resident, opened rapid-fire at an outdoor concert in the wee hours of the morning causing pandemonium among thousands of concertgoers until SWAT units found and killed him.

Local media reports that about 50 people have died from the incident while no fewer than 200 sustained various degrees of injuries.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo called for calm after the shooter was taken out, saying that Marilou Danley, a woman he described as Asian and 4-foot-11, has been declared a person of interest following the bloody attack.
