On Sunday night, a man identified as Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, opened fire on a Las Vegas country music festival from the 32nd floor of a Vegas hotel, killing at least 59 and injuring some 500 others.
Thus far, little is known about the man who killed so many innocents in what is the largest mass shooting in U.S. history. No motive has been established; federal officials have declined to label the massacre as terrorism.
Giving us slightly more insight into the vicious murderer, The Associated Press confirmed on Tuesday that Paddock previously worked as U.S. Postal Service employee and an IRS agent from 1976-84. The Charlotte Observer reports:
The Las Vegas gunman who killed nearly 60 people at a country music festival worked as a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, an IRS agent and in an auditing department over a 10-year period.
