Review-Journal reporters Elaine Wilson, Jeff German and Eli Segall sit down to discuss the latest news on the Las Vegas mass shooting.
Strip gunman Stephen Paddock owned a house in Mesquite, some 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. A probate case filed after the Oct. 1 mass shooting could set a sales process in motion. Some buyers may not care that the home was owned by a mass murderer, especially if it’s listed at a discount. But others might not want it, and at least one real estate agent says he wouldn’t want the listing.
A team of Review-Journal reporters were in Mesquite looking into Stephen Paddock’s past on Friday. They report on what they found during their interviews at businesses and with Mesquite officials.
The gunman who opened fire and killed at least 58 people was a 64-year-old Mesquite resident Stephen Paddock was in a 32nd-floor room of the Mandalay Bay, where he checked in on September 28 As officers entered his room, Paddock shot and killed himself, police said early Monday. Sheriff Joe Lombardo said officers found 23 rifles in the man’s room. Paddock’s brother, Eric, said, “It’s like an asteroid just fell on top of our family.”
Wade Millward reports from Mesquite where police found weapons and ammo in the shooter’s home.

1. A shooting on the Las Vegas Strip led to a temporary shutdown of Las Vegas Boulevard overnight. Police say a group of men got into an argument in front of Planet Hollywood Resort and when they were crossing the street toward Bellagio, a man fired one shot. No one was injured and the man was arrested.
2. Las Vegas driving will look different in a few years time. The Nevada Department of Transportation says it plans on creating carpool lanes along Interstate 15 and digital signage around the Spaghetti Bowl will be installed beginning in October. Eventually, the express lane along Interstate 15 will become a general travel lane and a carpool lane will be added.
3. A growth spurt has helped Mesquite become what some call a “Little Vegas”. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Mesquite grew nearly 15 percent between 2011 and 2016. Residents are hopeful the growth in the city will lead to more businesses opening and an influx of jobs.
