President Donald Trump on Wednesday pledged $1 million to Las Vegas law enforcement to help offset overtime costs following the mass shooting earlier this month where Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and injured 515.

It was the largest mass shooting in American history.

Trump wrote on Twitter:

The Justice Department said the $1 million will be pulled from emergency response funds from the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

"The grant funds announced today recognize the hard work and dedication of law enforcement officers across Las Vegas and the State of Nevada, who worked tirelessly in the wake of the tragic shooting last week," the Justice Department said in a statement.

Paddock, 64, opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino into a crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival on Oct. 1.
