Drapes billow out of broken windows at the Mandalay Bay resort and casino on the Las Vegas Strip, Oct. 2, 2017, following a deadly shooting at a music festival.

Officials said more than 500 people were injured when Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old retired accountant, shot concert-goers from an upper floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino onto the Route 91 Harvest country music festival below. It was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Coroner John Fudenberg says he waited to release autopsy findings until all the families had the information.
