According to the information given by the police, death toll from the mass shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert has now mounted to 59 and there were more than 500 injured in the incident.
Clark county Sheriff Joe Lombardo confirmed the latest casualty figures at a press conference on Monday night. Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire with automatic weapons on some 22,000 people at the Route 91 Harvest concert from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on Sunday at around 10.30 p.m.
Paddock killed himself as special response team officers broke into the hotel room, police said. Lombardo told the media that the investigation is concentrated on four locations: the hotel room; the concert venue; Paddock’s home in Mesquite, Nevada, and another property in northern Nevada that also belonged to the shooter.
Besides the 10 guns found in the hotel room, police discovered 18 firearms, explosives and thousands of rounds of ammunition at the residence in Mesquite, a town 128 km north of Las Vegas. Paddock also had ammonium nitrate, which can be used to make bombs, in his vehicle, the sheriff said.
