All of Vegas shooting victims killed by gunfire

All 58 victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting died of gunshot wounds, a coroner said Thursday, revealing that no one was trampled to death trying to escape from an outdoor concert that turned into a massacre.

The deaths in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history were all ruled homicides, Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg told The Associated Press.

The only wound to the shooter, Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, was a self-inflicted gunshot to the mouth, Fudenberg said. The death was ruled a suicide.

Twenty-one people were shot in the head, 36 died with chest and back wounds and one died of a gunshot to the leg, according to a chart the coroner released. Four victims had multiple gunshot wounds.

Authorities have said more than 500 people were injured when Paddock, a high-stakes video poker gambler, unleashed gunfire from an upper floor of a high-rise casino hotel onto an outdoor country music festival below.

Some have described receiving injuries other than gunfire during their escapes.


Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said last month that Paddock fired more than 1,100 shots. Authorities also reported finding about 4,000 unused rounds along with the 23 guns in the suite.

Fudenberg said autopsy reports in the case are not yet complete.
Paddock's brain was sent to Stanford University in California to study after a visual inspection during found no abnormalities.

Other than a 55 grain bullet had gone through it....

And I'm just speculating that he used an AR to off himself instead of a handgun.

Still no word on what if any drugs (prescription or otherwise) were in his system, despite information that he had recently filled a prescription for Valium - which has well understood ties to aggression and violent behavior?

From the pics that I saw I believe it was a revolver, at least that's what was laying next to the body.
