Las Vegas shooting

Police found more than 10 rifles in the Las Vegas shooter's hotel room

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was discovered in possession of more than 10 rifles that he used to open fire on a 22,000-person crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said in a press conference Monday morning. Paddock had reportedly been holed up in the hotel room for several days prior to the massacre. He was found dead of a self-inflicted gun wound in his room by authorities.

Authorities zeroed in on Paddock's location due to his hotel room's fire alarms going off from the smoke emitting from his weapons, a former Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officer told CBS This Morning. At least 50 people were killed and more than 400 injured in the Sunday night attack.
