Stephen Paddock reportedly belongs to Mesquite, Nevada. The 64-year old suspect who was acting alone or was a single wolf was firing from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel down at the festival, which was located in a fairgrounds area on Las Vegas Boulevard. Later, he was shot dead by the police officials.

Reports suggest that officers responded to reports of heavy gunfire coming from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay, a hotel-casino next to the concert venue. Thousands of fans were attending the concert, which was part of a three-day country music festival known as Route 91.

While not much is known about the suspect, nonetheless reports suggest that Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, has lived on Babbling Brook Court in Mesquite, Nevada, since June 2016.
