At least 50 people are dead and more than 400 injured in a Las Vegas shooting.
This is the highest shooting death toll in modern US history.
It happened little more than a year after the previous most deadly, the shooting in a gay club in Orlando, Florida on 12 June 2016.
The gunman, named as 64-year-old Nevada resident Stephen Paddock, opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.
His victims were attending an open-air music festival attended by 22,000 people.
Police say he killed himself as officers stormed the room where 10 guns were found.
Suzie Green, the CEO of the British trans children charity Mermaids, is in Las Vegas for a family vacation.
She was staying in the Excalibur, a hotel across the road from the Mandalay Bay Hotel, with her partner Jon, mother and aunt.
‘Madness outside last night with people running down the street and police everywhere,’ she told Gay Star News.
‘We were safe in rooms.’
She added: ‘We all went to bed fairly early last night. My mum heard shots and thought it was firecrackers.’
The family at the time of writing are now watching the news, and are remaining in their rooms.
Trump tweets ‘warmest condolences’ to Las Vegas victims
US President Donald Trump tweeted his ‘warmest condolences and sympathies’ to the victims and their families. He also called the shooting ‘terrible’.
Sheriff Joe Lombardo has described the shooter as a ‘lone wolf’.
However, ISIS have claimed to be responsible for the attack. They have provided no evidence for this and have previously made unsubstantiated claims.
‘We have no idea what his belief system was,’ Lombardo added.
