Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend being questioned by Federal Bureau of Investigation in Los Angeles

Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend being questioned by Federal Bureau of Investigation in Los Angeles”

CAIR also condemned the claim made by the terror group ISIS that the Las Vegas shooter was one of its "soldiers".

"Our souls are stricken with grief for every American who lost a husband or a wife, a mother or a father, a son or a daughter", he told them. He added, "We will struggle through it together".

Trump says, "We stand together to help you carry your pain".

Trump then headed to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police headquarters, where he met with officers, dispatchers and others who'd responded to the shooting Sunday night. Authorities have said he brought 23 weapons in 10 suitcases into the room and set up cameras inside and out to watch for police closing in on him. "It makes you very proud to be an American when you see the job that they've done", he said.

President Donald Trump says he met "some of the most fantastic people" during a visit to a hospital where victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas are being treated. Before leaving the White House, he had said: "It's a very, very sad day for me personally".

He says he wants to "congratulate everybody" at the hospital and says it's "incredible" what doctors have done. He later added that it was "a very disgusting thing even to think about".

Trump was speaking in the lobby of the University Medical Center.

Until his final remarks, Trump focused his comments during the trip on praising recovery efforts and offering congratulations to police officers, medical professionals and survivors, rather than on grieving the dead.

Trump did not visit the site of the shooting, but on his trip from the airport, his motorcade drove past the Mandalay Bay hotel where the gunman fired down into the concert crowd. He also drove past the Trump hotel.

President Donald Trump has landed in Las Vegas, where he will meet with victims and first responders of the mass shooting Sunday night.

Trump was to be joined by first lady Melania Trump.

Arriving with him Wednesday on Air Force One were House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, Rep. Richard Amodei of Nevada and Sen.

"We're not going to talk about that today", he said.

As he departed the White House for Puerto Rico, Trump called the Las Vegas gunman "demented" and a "very, very sick individual".

Marilou Danley issued the statement after returning from her native Philippines and being questioned for much of the day by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents still trying to figure out what drove Stephen Paddock to kill 58 people at a country music festival from his 32nd-floor hotel suite.

Benjamin Paddock was considered "armed and very risky", when he escaped.

"We can not be defined by the evil that threatens us or the violence that incites such terror", Mr Trump said at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police headquarters, reading from prepared remarks.
