New Details Arise From Las Vegas Gunman’s Hotel Room

A note found in the hotel room of the man who shot into a crowd from his perch in a Las Vegas high-rise included hand-written calculations about where he needed to aim to maximize his accuracy and kill as many people as possible.

In an interview airing Sunday on “60 Minutes,” three police officers who stormed Stephen Paddock’s hotel room in the Mandalay Bay hotel tell correspondent Bill Whitaker new details about the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. The officers were the first to see Paddock’s body and the arsenal of weapons and ammunition he had stockpiled.

Officer David Newton from the Las Vegas Police Department’s K-9 unit said he noticed a note on the shooter’s nightstand once officers breached the room. He said the note was located near one of the windows that Paddock had smashed with a hammer to fire onto the crowd below with high-powered semi-automatic rifles outfitted to increase their rate of fire.

“I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was gonna be for the crowd,” Newton said. “So he had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there.”

    This was evil period, but there had to be more than one shooter, and I still believe this was all staged by a much bigger group! Remember, this man was 64 years old with 600lbs of ammo, and 2 platforms built 6′ high, something’s NOT RIGHT HERE!

    The best thing is this murderer is now dead. He was evil. If guns would not have been available he would have probably used a bomb. The bomb would probably have killed or seriously injured even more people.

    This was a cold calculating killer. He may have committed this crime to goout with a bang . His woman had described his behavior of screaming while on his bed so he may have had a disease or condition that was about to take him!

      This is pure evil, as in demonic possession. There’s no fix for this except for Jesus Christ. The world is experiencing a moral decay and it’s only going to get worse, as we are witnessing. May God bless America.
