Photos have emerged of one of the 23 rifles found inside Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s hotel room, which he used on a crowd of 22,000 attending a music festival on Sunday.
The photos, obtained by Boston 25, show one of the weapons to have a ‘bump stock’ added to make it fully automatic. That gun also had an over-sized magazine attached.
Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival just after 10pm Sunday night, killing at least 59 and injuring 527.
It took police 72 minutes to zero in on Paddock’s hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across the street from the festival.
They say he had cameras set up in the hallway so he would know when authorities arrived. Paddock continued to fight even as police breached his room – firing through the front door at officers. But by the time the SWAT team finally made it into the room, Paddock had killed himself.
