LAS VEGAS - Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo says 59 people have been killed and 527 injured in a mass shooting Sunday night at an outdoor country music festival in Las Vegas.
    
Lombardo also says investigators found 18 firearms, explosives and several thousand rounds of ammunition in the home of suspected shooter Stephen Craig Paddock in Mesquite, Nevada.
    
The incident was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Lombardo said investigators are focused on four main crime scenes right now: The room at Mandalay Bay hotel from where the gunman shot, the concert event location, the shooter's house in Mesquite, Nevada, and SWAT teams are standing by at a home in northern Nevada.

So far, police have recovered "in excess of" 18 additional firearms, explosives and several thousand rounds of ammo at the home in Mesquite, according to Lombardo.

He said ammonium nitrate, a material used to make explosives, was also found in Stephen Craig Paddock's car.
    
Lombardo also says investigators still want to talk to Paddock's girlfriend. He says she will be interviewed when she returns from an overseas trip. Lombardo says she's in Tokyo.    

Some electronic devices were also retrieved which the department is evaluating, he said.
