A gunman, now identified as Stephen Craig Paddock, of Mesquite, used a fully-automatic assault rifle to fire hundreds, perhaps thousands of rounds down onto a crowd of fans enjoying the conclusion of a three-day country music festival near the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Over 58 people are dead and at least 400 wounded in the now-deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

In footage of the attack, dozens of shots can be heard going off in a matter of seconds. Officers and SWAT team personnel stormed the hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino to find Paddock dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Among the wounded and dead were four off-duty police officers.

A 36 year old man named Scott Patrick Cole of Newport Beach was booked into Orange County Jail on the suspicion of battery with serious bodily injury, trespassing, causing harm to an elder/dependent adult, and assault with a deadly weapon.

At around 4:30 p.m. officers got an assault call to the 800 block of West 15th St. After the officers arrived, they had made contact with a man, who fled to a nearby neighbor’s house for safety, said Jennifer Manzella, a Newport Beach police spokeswoman.

The unidentified victim was then taken to a nearby hospital for non-life threatening injuries and was later released. Apparently, the victim and Cole were acquainted, Manzella said. The officers were trying to contact Cole at the residence where the assault had allegedly taken place, but Cole repeatedly refused to come to the front door, said Manzella, adding that Cole seemed extremely agitated and began breaking windows and throwing objects inside the victim’s home.
