These heart-rending pictures show the horrific aftermath of a country music festival which became the scene of America’s deadliest mass shooting.

Gun fanatic Stephen Paddock, 64, sprayed bullets at 22,000 concert-goers who attended the Route 91 Harvest festival from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas.

At least 59 people were killed in the massacre while more than 500 others were injured.

Gruesome photographs captured hours after the shooting show bodies covered up on the festival grounds while blood-soaked clothing stains surrounding streets.

A vase stuffed with red roses was left near the festival while roads normally busy with traffic lie empty and cordoned off by police. More Photos below;

Patches of blood are seen splattered on pavements with items of clothes left behind by frightened revellers.

FBI investigators were spotted scouring the festival site in eerie images which captured the scale of the carnage.

Crowds were watching country music star Jason Aldean perform when his headline set was cut short by a wave of deadly gunfire.
