The Las Vegas Shooter Had 23 Guns During The Attack – Here Are All The Details We Know About Him So Far

On Sunday night, at least 59 people were killed and 527 injured on the Las Vegas Strip when a gunman shot at concert-goers from a 32nd floor room of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

The crowd had gathered to watch country musician Jason Aldean perform, part of a three-day festival. It is the deadliest shooting in American history, to date.

The shooter, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock from Mesquite, Nevada was found dead in his hotel room.

People reports that 23 weapons were discovered in his hotel room, most of which were military-style rifles. At least one of those rifles had been modified with a“bump stock” style device, which allows for rapid fire without a technical conversion to a fully automatic gun.
