By the time heavily armed Paddock, dug in on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay, would have been alerted to trouble outside, the official said the gunman would have been boxed in.

Investigators have found 47 firearms that belonged to Paddock, a dozen of which were converted to mimic fully automatic weapons. He killed himself as police were preparing to enter his room.

In comparison, around 22,000 were at the Route 91 Country music festival when the terrorist began his attack.
