20 dead in Las Vegas shooting

TEHRAN, Oct. 02 (MNA) – More than 20 people were killed and at least 100 others wounded during a mass shooting at a concert in Las Vegas city late Sunday night.

The sole suspect of the shooting has been killed at the hotel from across the outdoor concert, Sheriff Joseph Lambardo from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told reporters.

The police are not looking for additional suspects but a female "companion" of the suspect, who remains unidentified, is being sought, Lambardo said.

The FBI is involved in the ongoing investigation, but officials made no reference to terrorism, reported Anadolu.

The shooting is the worst on US soil since the Orlando mass shooting in June, 2016, which killed 49 people.
