The shooter, Stephen Paddock, 64, died from a gunshot wound. According to police, Paddock fired at the crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino.

It took approximately 72 minutes for the police to reach the attackers room. He had cameras installed throughout the hallway.

    I am buying 120 iPhones and stitching them together to make myself a body armor. Can somebody please set up a GoFundMe account for me? Thanks.Recommend
