At least 14 of those injured are in critical condition, according to University Medical Center spokeswoman Danita Cohen, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The man, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, was shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Police have said the lone shooter has since been killed.

The country music festival was across from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Country music star Jason Aldean was performing at the festival when the gunfire erupted.

From video, it appears he had automatic weapons.
