Las Vegas shooting
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.
