Vegas Shooting: FBI Says Cased Closed With No Motive After 16 Months

After well over a year of investigating the tragic Las Vegas mass shooting in 2017 that left 58 people dead and countless more injured, the FBI concluded its investigation without a motive for shooter Stephen Paddock.

The FBI’s 16 month investigation of the Mandalay Bay shooting, in which Paddock opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle on a crowd of country music fans, concluded with no clear motive for Paddock’s killing spree. It noted that Paddock may have wanted to live up to his father’s name, become famous in death, or may have simply become “bored” with life, but identified no specific motive.

According to the FBI’s report:

The LVRP found no evidence that Paddock’s attack was motivated by any ideological or political beliefs. The LVRP concludes that Paddock’s attack was neither directed, inspired, nor enabled by ideologically-motivated persons or groups. Paddock was not seeking to further any religious, social, or political agenda through his actions. The LVRP further assesses that Paddock conspire with no one; he acted alone.
