By THE NEW YORK TIMES
A gunman on a high floor of a Las Vegas hotel rained a rapid-fire barrage
on an outdoor concert festival on Sunday night, leaving at least 59 people
dead, injuring 527 others, and sending thousands of terrified survivors
fleeing for cover, in one of the deadliest mass shootings in American
Online video of the attack near the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino showed
the singer Jason Aldeans performance at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, a
three-day country music event, being interrupted by the sound of gunfire.
The music stopped, and as victims fell bleeding, concertgoers screamed,
ducked for cover, or ran. Get down, one shouted. Stay down, screamed
The police found the gunman, whom they identified as Stephen Paddock, 64,
dead in his room at the hotel. Investigators were still combing through
Mr. Paddocks background and searching his home on Monday.
The Islamic State claimed that Mr. Paddock was one of its soldiers, but
did not provide any evidence of its claim. The F.B.I. said there was no
evidence so far that Mr. Paddock had ties to any international terrorist
organization, and relatives said he had not displayed strong political or
ideological beliefs in their interactions with him.

Police said the gunman fired on the crowd of about 22,000 people from the
32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, several hundred feet southwest of
the concert grounds.
Country music singer Jason Aldean was performing when the gunshots began,
according to witnesses' cell phone video.
"The gunshots lasted for 10 to 15 minutes. It didn't stop," said witness
Rachel de Kerf.
Authorities identified the shooter as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock of
Paddock was alive when officers first made contact with him. After taking
gunfire from him, police backed off and waited for SWAT to respond. A
security guard was shot in the leg.
Police said officers "breached the hotel room" where the shooter was
located and "found the suspect dead." Authorities believe he killed

"We had no knowledge of this individual," Lombardo said of Paddock. "I
don't know how it could have been prevented."
The shooter's brother, Eric Paddock, told CNN: "He was my brother and
it's like an asteroid fell out of the sky." He said the last time he spoke
to his brother was when Stephen texted asking how their mother was after
they lost power for five days in a storm.
Eric Paddock said his brother had never shown violent tendencies, and had
no affiliations with any terror or hate group. Paddock says he's still in
the dark on why his brother would do this.
The FBI confirmed that Stephen Paddock's father was a convicted bank
robber who was previously on the FBI's most wanted list, from June 10,
1969, until May 5, 1977. Eric Paddock said his father died a few years
The shooter had been at the Mandalay Bay hotel since September 28,
authorities said. Hotel employees had been in his room prior to the
shooting and did not notice anything amiss, according to Lombardo.
Police cannot confirm if Paddock requested the room from where he fired
the shots. It was a suite with two rooms.
