No motive has been released for the shooting.

NBC News says he's a local with a criminal past and was known to law enforcement.

Over 50 people were killed and over 200 were injured in Sunday night's attack.

According to Sheriff Joe Lombardo, Paddock shot at his victims from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino. Paddock killed himself and police found him in the same location.

"We believe it's a solo actor. A lone wolf," Lombardo said. "We are comfortable that the primary aggressor in this event has expired or passed away and is no longer a threat."

Law enforcement sources told CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton that person of interest Marilou Danley was Paddock's wife. According to The Australian, Danley is an Australian and possibly of Indonesian descent.

Police said Monday they do not believe the shooting was terror related.

Dozens of witnesses captured video of the shooting, one of the most shocking of which is embedded below:
