    Shooter is dead. Reports are leaking out that it was a 64-year-old white man, but it's probably best to wait for an official confirmation.

    Edit: Confirmed. Shooter was Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old local man who apparently had a criminal past and was known to Nevada law enforcement.
    Doesn't seem to fit the profile.

    Needs a manifesto for something like this.

    How do you get an arsenal in a casino? No metal detectors? It's a casino, with money and drunk people.

    I hear it’s up to 200 injured now, so yeah, it looks like you are right.

    Have never had my bags checked upon entering a hotel. Wouldn't be hard to get one into a hotel/casino in that manner.

    He was in a hotel room so I imagine he just checked in with his "luggage."

    I mean, Nevada has very permissive gun laws: no purchase permit, gun registration, or owner license required, open carry permitted, "shall-issue" for concealed carry permits, no magazine or rifle restrictions, no waiting periods, etc.

    So guns and ammunition are very easy to get, and he probably just carried duffel bags full of them right up to his room.

    Absolutely terrible. Can't remember a mass shooting in our country like this. Hard to zero in on a motive. All kinds of different people, races, religions, etc effected. God, please give us wisdom and strength to deal with this kind of tragedy.

    A known person to police who has a criminal past. Restrictive gun laws obviously were not going to keep him from doing what he did. He was hell bound bent and determined to do this anyway he could.

    No sarcasm intended. There are numerous profiles which he seems to go against.

    This part is a little unclear right now. He was initially reported to have a "criminal past" and that he was "known" to police, but it's not clear what that means yet.

    Paddock was known to law enforcement, NBC News’ Pete Williams reports. But details of those run-ins were not immediately available. Public records do not show any criminal convictions for Paddock in Nevada. Fox News reports that Paddock “was known” to Las Vegas Police. Undersheriff McMahill told CNN that he had no major “derogatory” criminal record other than a minor offense in Las Vegas. Mesquite Police told CBS News that he had no run-ins with him. They said he lived in a retirement community, called Sun City, is a white male and wasn’t a military veteran.

    A coworker told me the female they are seeking as his accomplice was a hotel employee. Some are saying she may have smuggled the guns in but as others have said it might not have been necessary.
