The shooting occurred late on Oct. 1, when Paddock began firing from the window of his 32nd floor hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip. Paddock targeted a concert taking place across the street, killing dozens of people and injuring hundreds of others.

The coroner's report, obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, indicates that 18 of the 58 people killed in the shooting died from gunshot wounds to the head.
