Darian Nishida, Reporter

At about 10:05 P.M. on Sunday, Oct. 1, a man began firing from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on a crowd of 22,000 people attending an outdoor country music festival. In the minutes before the mass shooting started, Paddock fired 200 bullets into the hotel hallway, wounding security guard Jesus Campos.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the law enforcement agency leading the investigation, has repeatedly said that Paddock was the only shooter that night. At least 58 people were killed and 527 injured in Las Vegas that night when a gunman opened fire on a music festival. It is now the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.
