On the night of October 1, 2017, a gunman opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada, leaving 58 people dead and 546 injured. Between 10:05 and 10:15 p.m. PDT, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nevada, fired hundreds of rifle rounds from his suite on the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay hotel. About an hour after Paddock fired his last shot into the crowd, he was found dead in his room from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His motive is unknown.

 

The incident is the deadliest mass shooting committed by an individual in the United States. The shooting has been a source of controversy and conspiracy theories due to the bizarre circumstances of the crime, the apparent lack of motive, no hotel surveillance footage, changing timelines/stories, and the reignited debate about gun laws with attention focused on bump fire stocks.
