Officials also provided an update on the investigation into the shooting.

Stephen Paddock, 64, of Nevada, was identified as the shooter after he was found dead in a hotel room with an arsenal of weapons. Police said Paddock fatally shot himself as a SWAT team approached his room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Paddock's girlfriend has been named as a person of interest in the investigation.

At least 59 people were killed and 527 were injured in the shooting, police said. The crowd was gathered outside Mandalay Bay for a Jason Aldean country music concert.

Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo held a news conference at 4 p.m. Tuesday after police made several additional steps in the investigation.

Officials said the majority of people who were killed in the shooting died because of gunshot wounds, but it's not confirmed if all deaths were caused by gunshots.

They have not been able to confirm whether Paddock trained himself with the automatic weapons he used in the shooting.

Police said SWAT members were delayed in entering the hotel because Paddock had stopped shooting, so the situation was being treated as a barricaded situation at that point.
