Stephen Paddock fired more than 1,100 rounds when he killed 58 people and injured more than 500 others at a country music festival on the Strip last month, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told a local newspaper Wednesday.
Lombardo told the Las Vegas Review-Journal he was aware of the previously unreported figure because his department’s forensics lab is working with the FBI to process all ballistics evidence.
Paddock fired on a crowd of thousands who were attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival from his 32nd floor suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino on the night of Oct. 1. He killed himself as police approached his suite.
Lombardo added that authorities found about 4,000 unused rounds in the suite.
