As Las Vegas began the process of recovering from one of the deadliest mass shootings in US history, the motive for such an attack looms large.
The authorities have yet to provide a motive for Stephen Paddock, 64, who killed at least 59 people and injured more than 520 others on Sunday when he unleashed a rapid-fire hail of bullets on an outdoor music festival.
Armed with at least 23 firearms, Paddock, who the police have described as a “lone gunman,” stationed himself in a 32nd-floor luxury suite of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and fired into a crowd of thousands of people, as per a report on New York Times.
As investigators sketched a portrait of Paddock, a wealthy gambler and amateur golfer, survivors have described the scene of carnage in vivid detail: Thousands of concertgoers screaming and running for cover as the gunman’s victims fell around them.
