Police officials confirmed the authenticity of the photos of the Las Vegas shooting scene.
From his perch on the floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, the gunman, who had been identified by the authorities as Stephen Paddock, he utilized rapid-fire automatic weapons to shoot at people on the music festival below.
At least three AR-15-style rifles were observable on the furniture, combined with at least a dozen magazines, which may hold up to 100 rounds and about the floor. (A conventional American infantry soldiers magazine is 30 rounds.)
Two of the rifles were outfitted with scopes and two-legged supports attached to the undersides of the weapons. These additions would have aided Mr. Paddock goal specific people.
At least among the weapons at the photographs appears to have been altered using a "bump stock," a gun add-on which can make semiautomatic rifle to fire rounds quicker, at a speed much like a fully automatic weapon. Officials stated that 12 of the rifles were outfitted with bump stocks. The diagram below only shows the positioning of those firearms which were visible in videos and photos.
Mr. Paddock brought a minimum of 10 suitcases into his hotel suite over a period of time, the authorities said. Over 20 guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition were found in the suite.
The suite was with windows. A composite picture of resort photos, below, shows an identical suite with a different view's layout and furniture. The picture is flipped from its perspective that is original to match the orientation of the gunman's package.
