White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared to be emotionally affected by the statement she read Monday about the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas that took the lives of over 50 Americans.

Here's the video of the statement from Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

"Sadly multiple police officers both on duty and off duty were among those killed or injured," she said. "But what these people did for each other says far more about who we are as Americans than the cowardly acts of the killer ever could."

"The Gospel of John reminds us that there is no greater love than to lay down one's life for a friend," she added, tearing up.

"The memory of those who displayed the ultimate expression of love in the midst of an unimaginable act of hate will never fade," she continued. "Their examples will serve as an eternal reminder that the American spirit cannot and will not be broken."

"In the days ahead we will grieve as a nation, we will honor the memory of those lost as a nation," she said.

"And we will come together united as one nation, under God, and indivisible," she concluded.

What is the latest on the attack?

Stephen Paddock shot at concertgoers from the 32nd level room at Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas. Some reports indicate he used an AR-15 which was illegally modified into a fully automatic weapon. More than 50 have been counted among the killed so far, making this one of the largest gun attacks in U.S. history.

Law enforcement officials have not indicated what motivation the shooter might have had. His brother was interviewed and said that Paddock had no religious or political affiliations. He also admitted that their father was a notorious bank robber who had been on the FBI's top ten list.
