Initial Posting:

Sunday evening a lone gunman opened fire from the 32-floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel onto the sold-out Route 91 Harvest Music Festival, on the Las Vegas strip.

According to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, 50 people are dead and more than 200 have been injured.

A Cache County officer said he identified the gunman as Stephen Paddock, 64, and  confirmed he was killed. Police are currently looking for the suspect’s roommate, Marilou Danley, a 4’11 and 111 pounds (50.3488 kilogram) woman of Asian descent.

Police said Danley may be driving a Hyundai with a Nevada plate: 114B40 or a Chrysler with a Nevada plate: 19D401.

If you spot Danley or her vehicle please dial 911 and do not approach the suspect.
