LAS VEGAS (AP) — More than a dozen investigators, most wearing jackets marked "FBI" and all in blue protective booties, arrived in unmarked sedans and entered the concert site Tuesday to pick through the scene for clues.

The site inspection was visible by The Associated Press videographers from the 35th floor of the Mandalay Bay tower — three floors above the suite where Stephen Craig Paddock launched his barrage and later killed himself.

Authorities say 59 people were killed and more than 500 were injured Sunday night.

Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt compared the scene with a war zone. Laxalt is a former U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General's Corps member.

"Shoes, baby strollers, chairs, sunglasses, purses. The whole field was just littered with things," Laxalt said Monday. "There were blood stains everywhere."
