A gunman opened fire on a country music concert in Las Vegas in the U.S. state of Nevada on Sunday night, killing at least 59 people and injuring more than 500 others in the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history, police said on Monday.

One source also said Paddock had purchased an old, used police squad vehicle and would park it outside the apartment complex he owned to scare off anyone trying to commit crimes.

Through Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant's official Amaq news channel, the group said Paddock converted to Islam a few months ago.

A performance by Jake Owen preceded Aldean's set.

Like everyone else, they had no idea a gunman with an arsenal of weapons would open fire outside the building hours later. The footage showed Aldean running off the stage.
