On October 1, 2017, a mass shooting occurred at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada.

The gunman was identified as Stephen Craig Paddock (April 9, 1953 – October 1, 2017), who was living in a retirement community in Mesquite, Nevada. Police found 16 rifles and one handgun inside the hotel room that Paddock had rented since September 28. According to police, Paddock acted alone and his motive is unknown.

Paddock was a retired accountant, and reportedly affluent. He owned and managed some apartment buildings with his mother. He had previous residences in Reno, Nevada; California; Texas; and Central Florida. He had been a licensed private pilot since at least 2003 and had previously owned two small aircraft. He had a hunting license from Alaska.

Police, relatives, and neighbors described him as a gambler. Police said Paddock had made recent casino transactions in the tens of thousands of dollars, but did not say whether they were losses or wins.

Paddock's father, Benjamin Hoskins Paddock, was a bank robber who was placed on the FBI's most-wanted list in 1969 after he escaped from federal prison; he was taken off the list in 1977.
