Police in New York City are stepping up security measures in what has been described as ‘strategic locations’ in the wake of Sunday night’s deadly massacre in Las Vegas that has left at least 58 dead and more than 510 wounded.

NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said on Monday there have been no specific threats to New York City.

O’Neill offered his thoughts on the mass shooting, believed to be the deadliest of its kind in modern US history, while speaking at the 16th annual Domestic Violence Training Conference at Police Headquarters.

‘Here in New York City, we’re monitoring the investigation and have deployed personnel to strategic locations out of an abundance of caution,’ O’Neill told the audience. ‘There are no direct threats to New York City but we’ll certainly be maintaining our vigilance.

‘We’re keeping everyone affected by the events in Las Vegas in our thoughts and I ask that you do as well.’
Additional counterterrorism units have been deployed in Times Square as a precaution, according to CBS New York. on the heels of the devastating attack during the sold-out Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas Strip.

Authorities in Las Vegas have identified the gunman as 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock, a resident of nearby Mesquite, Nevada, who they say unloaded thousands of rounds of ammunition on a 22,000-strong crowd of concertgoers while he was holed up in a room on the 32nd story of Mandalay Bay hotel across the street.
