New Delhi:

At least 50 people were killed and over 200 injured following a shooting at a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip on Monday.

The gunman who opened fire on concertgoers on the Las Vegas strip killed himself before officers broke into his hotel room, the police said.

While speaking about the incident, Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told a news conference, “We believe the individual killed himself prior to our entry.”

He said officers found “in excess of 10 rifles” upon entering the 32nd floor hotel room from which a gunman opened fire at concertgoers below, killing at least 50 and injuring hundreds.

MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said no reports have been received of any Indian nationals amongst those affected in the incident.
