Binder posted about the flowers on her Instagram account.

She added: ‘One of our officers was shot in Las Vegas…. This is one of the smaller arrangements.

‘Beautiful flowers can bring a smile to anyone’s face. Much respect.’

‘Thank you to all who have called and experienced concerns of our Foothill Female Officer. She is stable and doing well. We wish everyone who remains in Las Vegas and in attendance safe returns,’ the LAPD wrote on Facebook.

Swift’s new album Reputation is due out November 10. Her first single was Look What You Made Me Do, which alluded to her fights with Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry in her music video. Perry and Kardashian have taken swipes at Swift over the years.

On Tuesday photos have emerged of two of the 23 rifles found inside Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s hotel room, which he used to rain down death on a crowd of 22,000 attending a music festival on Sunday.

The photos, obtained by Boston 25, show two semi-automatic weapons, with one having a ‘bump stock’ added to make it fully automatic. Fully-automatic weapons allow the shooter to unleash bullet after bullet simply by holding down the trigger. With that weapon, Paddock would have been capable of firing hundreds of rounds per minute into the crowd. That gun also had an over-sized magazine attached so he wouldn’t have to pause to refill ammunition as often.

The other weapon has branding showing that it was made by Daniel Defense, a Savannah, Georgia-based company which produces variants of the AR-15 rifle, originally created for the American military. That weapon also has a bi-pod attached for stability and a telescopic lens for accuracy.

In the two pictures, the guns are seen laid out on the bed in Paddock’s hotel room. One of the rifles is seen next to a full magazine, dozens of spent bullets and a hammer – which the 64-year-old shooter allegedly used to shatter two windows in the room, which he then used to fire out of onto the crowd below.

Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival just after 10pm Sunday night, killing at least 59 and injuring 527.

It took police 72 minutes to zero in on Paddock’s hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across the street from the festival.

They say he had cameras set up in the hallway so he would know when authorities arrived. Paddock continued to fight even as police breached his room – firing through the front door at officers. But by the time the SWAT team finally made it into the room, Paddock had killed himself.
