  • Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock had lost money, been depressed, sheriff says

Jennifer Parks, 36, a kindergarten teacher from Palmdale, California, died from multiple gunshot wounds to the head.

People scramble for shelter at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival after apparent gun fire was heard in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 1, 2017.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said last month that Paddock fired more than 1,100 shots. The deaths were all ruled homicides.

The coroner also said Paddock, who killed himself after the ambush, died of a single self-inflicted gunshot to the mouth.

Authorities have still not released a conclusion on what could have possibly motivated Paddock, a gambler and a real estate investor, to commit a massacre. "Which is what everybody wants to know".

The FBI has interviewed upward of 400 people worldwide who are thought to have connections to the gunman and have brought in "various psychological and sociological" experts, and 400 different specialists to work on the case.

"My initial scan, coming in the room with my rifle, is just seeing, I'm seeing one male down, bleeding from the face", said Officer Matthew Donaldson.

The gunman, identified as Stephen Paddock, killed at least 58 people and injured hundreds of others attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival at an outdoor venue near the hotel. Some witnesses were adamant about there being more than one shooter.

Still, almost three months later, investigators have not yet publicly released a motive in what's considered the deadliest mass shooting in American history.

Rouse said the Federal Bureau of Investigation has interviewed around 400 people worldwide with each of them having some sort of connection to the gunman.

The FBI also said that it will not be providing the public an update until the report is released, which will probably be around October of 2018.
