Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo stated Monday morning that the Las Vegas shooter, who killed at least 50 people at a country music festival, was found dead by police with at least 10 rifles in his hotel room.
At least 50 are dead and 400 are injured in the deadliest mass shooting in US history after Stephen Craig Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. Paddock rained shots down on the crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.
WATCH AERIAL VIEW OF WHERE THE SHOOTING TOOK PLACE:
Police found the 64-year-old dead when they entered Paddock’s hotel room, which he had been staying in since September 28. Paddock was found with at least ten rifles and apparently used a fully automatic weapon to commit the mass shooting.
“We have no investigative information or background associated with this individual that’s derogatory,” the sheriff told reporters at a press conference at 6 a.m. local time. “The only thing we can tell is he received a citation several years ago and that citation was handled as a matter of normal practice in the court system.”
Sheriff Lombardo said that police do not yet have any motive for the attack.
