The total number of people who died in the attack at a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday has crossed over 50. The death toll, which police emphasised was preliminary and tentative, would make the attack the deadliest mass shooting in US history, eclipsing last year's massacre of 49 people at an Orlando night club, news agency Reuters reported.
