Who Is Stephen Paddock; He Killed Himself

Who was Stephen Paddock, the man police say killed more than 50 people on the Las Vegas Strip? Paddock, 64, was found dead in his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas when a police SWAT team broke down the door.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said authorities believe Paddock killed himself.

Police don’t think anybody else was involved in the shooting.

Paddock had been at the hotel since Thursday, Lombardo said.

Authorities said it appears he fired guns from his room into the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on Sunday night, killing more than 50 and wounding over 400.

Paddock had been living in Mesquite, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

Authorities searched his home Monday and found weapons and ammunition, but Mesquite police spokesman Quinn Averett did not give details.

Averett didn’t know how long Paddock had lived in the area.
