Stephen Paddock's home in west Reno

The suspect in Sunday night's Las Vegas massacre, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, owns a home in west Reno, Nevada, in the Somersett area. The FBI is on scene.

Reno Police have issued this statement:

"In response to last night's senseless and cowardly act, Chief Soto has reached out to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and Sheriff Lombardo, on behalf of the men and women of the Reno Police Department. Chief Soto offered condolences to Sheriff Lombardo and his staff and offered to provide the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department with any assistance and/or resource that the Reno Police Department may provide. We have also offered our assistance to the FBI who is assisting LVMPD.

"At this time, the Reno Police Department is not involved in any aspect of the investigation. Furthermore, the Reno Police Department has not had any prior documented contacts with either the suspect in the shooting (who we've intentionally declined to name) or the female who the shooter has been reported to be associated with.

"As is done after any active assailant incident, the Reno Police Department will review the incident in an effort to improve our own tactics and training. RPD will also evaluate safety measures that are implemented for future special events.

"Chief Soto and the men and women of the Reno Police Department are keeping the victims and the families of the victims in our thoughts and prayers."
