LVMPD Identifies Suspect in Sunday Night Shooting on the Strip
An Estimated 406 People Transported to Hospitals, 50 Dead
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department identified the lone suspect involved in the late-
night mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip as 64-year-old, Stephen Craig Paddock, a white
male from Mesquite, Nevada.
Paddock opened fire on a crowd of more than 22,000 concert-goers from his hotel room on the
32 nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel on Sunday evening at approximately 10:08 p.m. The
victims were across the street attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert when bullets
rang out. LVMPD SWAT responded to the call, breached the hotel room and found the suspect
The Clark County Fire Department estimated that approximately 406 people were transported to
area hospitals and 50 are dead following Sunday evening’s shooting. Among the dead is an
LVMPD officer who was off-duty at the time. His name is being withheld pending notification of
next of kin. There were also two on-duty officers injured, one of whom was upgraded recently
from critical to stable condition. The other sustained non-life threatening wounds.
This is still an active investigation. The Federal Bureau of Investigations is asking for anyone
with videos or photos concerning the shooting to call 1-800-CALLFBI or (800) 225-5324.
LVMPD and Clark County Coroner’s Office have set up a hotline for family or friends to report a
missing loved one connected to this incident. The hotline is only to take reports on missing
people. The number is (866) 535-5654. LVMPD also opened up a family reunification center at
its headquarters at 400 S. Martin L. King Blvd. in Building B.
The identification process of all of the injured and the deceased will take time, so authorities are
asking the public for patience.
