Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo says two off-duty officers have died.

Several officers from California were attending the outdoor Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on Sunday when a gunman opened fire. A Bakersfield Police officer was shot and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities have not released any of their identities.

As of Monday morning, the death toll had climbed to 58. More than 500 people were injured.

Lombardo says the suspect, identified as Stephen Paddock, is dead. The sheriff says they believe this was a “lone wolf” attack and though Islamic State terror group claimed responsibility for the shooting, the FBI says there is currently “no connection” between the gunman and any international terror organizations.
