The man accused of killing at least 50 people and injuring more than 400 others on the Las Vegas strip had ties to Texas.

In an update this morning, Sheriff Joe Lombardo said officers believe 64-year-old Stephen Paddock killed himself after firing at concert-goers from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino while country singer Jason Aldean performed last night.

While Lombardo was living in Mesquite, Nevada, he had a Texas driver license and had lived in North Texas.

Lombardo says Paddock had at least 10 rifles.

Investigators believe his companion, Marilou Danley was not involved in the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.
