A high-stakes gambler who rained a hail of gunfire down on a crowd of country music fans, killing 58, took any specific motive for the 2017 attack to his grave, the FBI said Tuesday as it concluded the investigation into the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
The agency found no "single or clear motivating factor" to explain why Stephen Paddock carried out the attack from his suite in a high-rise casino hotel. The 64-year-old fatally shot himself as police closed in.
"It wasn't about MGM, Mandalay Bay or a specific casino or venue," Aaron Rouse, the agent in charge of the FBI's Las Vegas office, told The Associated Press. "It was all about doing the maximum amount of damage and him obtaining some form of infamy."
The finding was contained in a long-awaited report compiled by the FBI's Behavior Analysis Unit, a group of experts who spent months examining several factors that might have led to the rampage.
"This report comes as close to understanding the why as we're ever going to get," Rouse said.

A 65 year old multimillionaire, supposedly for no reason whatsoever, suddenly decided to bring enormous amounts of weapons and ammunition into a Las Vegas hotel room.
He then supposedly fired simultaneously from two windows in two separate rooms. He supposedly killed 58 people and injured around 900.
FBI can’t find a motive? Shocking! s/
But it’s the FBI. The FBI never lies.
(Do I really need to post the tag?)
Happens all the time, right..?
Sure, over the long term he supported himself, even turned into a millionare, as a VIDEO POKER PLAYER..!
Did I mention that I’m the Easter Bunny..?
Vegas shooter ping
of course they don’t. Why should anyone think they would conclude otherwise?
Get Adrian Monk on the case...he’ll figure it out.
That's a good trick.
I just don’t trust the DOJ or FBI.
Watch at the 3 min, 30 second point:
"DIE, RANDOM SON OF A BITCH!"
Probably because President Trump, the Russkis, conservative and Christian Americans didn’t have anything to do with it.
“Nobody knows nuttin! Yeah, that’s the ticket.”
So the cover up continues....
What an insult to all those that were killed.
I’m SO not surprised....
The guys who investigated 911 and let the terrorists in and then out of the country are back to their old games.
Someone very powerful is pulling their strings.
The official explanation for this never made a lick of sense.
This is why the FBI can't find their ass with their hands - it's wearing a disguise!!!
Probably exactly true !
Premeditated precognition ... espoused by Mueller.
