The FBI concluded its 16-month investigation into the 2017 Las Vegas massacre on Tuesday, saying it found no specific motive behind the shooting that killed 58 people. On Oct. 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock fired more than 1,000 bullets in 11 minutes from a 32nd-floor hotel suite into a crowd of 22,000 country music fans at an outdoor festival. More than 400 people were shot but survived, and hundreds more were injured in the panicking crowd. Paddock, who acted alone, fatally shot himself as police closed in on him in his Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino suite.

An extensive investigation found no evidence of a conspiracy or a second gunman. Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Stephen Paddock was “an unremarkable man” who showed signs of a troubled mind leading up to the Oct. 1 shooting into a concert crowd of 22,000 people.
