President Donald Trump offered his “warmest condolences” to the victims of a Las Vegas massacre and their families.
A gunman opened fire on a country music festival late Sunday night on the Strip, killing at least 50 people and wounding more than 400 others.
The president issued a comment early Monday on Twitter.
My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!

His companion, 62-year-old Marilou Danner, was taken into custody as a person of interest.
