Due to overwhelming public concern, the Las Vegas Sheriff’s Department released a preliminary report on the mass shooting that left 58 people dead and hundreds more injured last October.
Sheriff Joe Lombardo explained releasing the report is not standard practice, but given the unique circumstances of the case — and the national impact it has had — his department decided to publish an update.
“As you can imagine this is a complex, protracted investigation and we have done a lot of work trying to piece together what happened,” Lombardo said Friday during a press conference. “It is my hope this report will provide the media and the public an understanding of what occurred on 1 October.”
On Oct. 1, Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino into a country music festival attended by some 22,000 people. Paddockpost was originally published on this site
