Stephen Paddock is a 64 year-old local who has been described as “somewhat of a professional gambler.” He opened fire into a crowd of approximately 40,000 people from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel. He had over ten guns as well as cameras set up to watch for the police. He checked into the hotel on Thursday, September 28th[7]. Before a SWAT team could access his room, he shot himself in the head. His girlfriend has been detained and released after being determined to no longer be a suspect in the shooting. Reports on her involvement in his life are unconfirmed.
