Sheriff: Gunman fired over 1,100 rounds
LASVEGAS » The top lawman in Las Vegas says the gunman who killed dozens of people at a concert last month fired more than 1,100 rounds.
Sheriff Joe Lombardo said he was aware of the previously unreported figure because his department’s forensics lab is working with the FBI to process all ballistics evidence.
Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and injured hundreds more on Oct. 1 after he shattered windows of his suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotelcasino and unleashed withering gunfire at the music festival below before killing himself.
Lombardo says authorities found about 4,000 unused rounds in the suite.
