A 64-year-old man with multiple rifles rained down gunfire from the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel to a country music festival Sunday, slaughtering at least 58 people in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history before killing himself.The barrage of bullets from the Mandalay Bay hotel into a crowd of 22,000 people lasted several minutes, sparking panic. Daesh (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the massacre, but U.S. officials said there was no evidence of that.Lombardo said there were more than 10 rifles in the room where Paddock killed himself.Police found several more weapons at Paddock's home in Mesquite, about 145 km northeast of Las Vegas, Mesquite police spokesman Quinn Averett told reporters.Efforts to pass federal laws on guns failed following mass shootings from the 2012 massacre of 26 young children and educators in Newtown, Connecticut, to the June attack on Republican lawmakers practicing for a charity baseball game.Las Vegas' casinos, nightclubs and shopping draw some 3.5 million visitors each year and the area was packed with visitors when the shooting broke out.
