British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday (October 2) that she had spoken to U.S. President Donald Trump to pass on her condolences after a mass shooting in Las Vegas which killed at least 50 people, and added that Britain would offer any help U.S. investigators needed.

“This was an individual shooting randomly – a completely senseless and cowardly attack – and so many people have been killed and injured,” May said in a televised interview. “I have offered the United States every assistant that we can to support them in their investigation.”

A 64-year-old man armed with more than 10 rifles rained down gunfire on a Las Vegas country music festival on Sunday (October 1), slaughtering at least 58 people in the largest mass shooting in U.S. history before killing himself.

The barrage from a 32nd-floor window in the Mandalay Bay hotel into a crowd of 22,000 people lasted several minutes, causing panic. Some fleeing fans trampled each other as police scrambled to find the gunman. More than 500 people were injured.
