President Donald Trump early Monday tweeted condolences to the victims and families of the deadly shooting Sunday night at an outdoor country music festival in Las Vegas. 

Vice President Mike Pence followed Trump's tweet with a statement of his own, also on Twitter:

The lone gunman shooter has been identified as Stephen Paddock, 64, a Las Vegas resident, according to The Associated Press. At least 50 people, including police officers, are dead, and more than 200 were wounded after shots began ringing out while country music star Jason Aldean was performing on stage Sunday night at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

Officers discovered Paddock on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across the street from the concert and killed him, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said, identifying the suspect later in the morning during a press conference.

Aldean, in a post to Instagram, said the night was "horrific."

"I still don't know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe. My Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. #heartbroken #stopthehate."
