The suspect in the massacre in Las Vegas committed suicide before the arrival of the police. This was reported by Sheriff John Lombardo. According to the latest information, 10 rifles were also found in his room.

According to preliminary data, the killer is a 64-year-old resident of Nevada, Stephen Paddock. As it was established, the culprit had no previous record known to the police. Suspicions of his companion’s participation have been removed.

As a reminder, shooting at a concert near a casino in Las Vegas occurred on the night of October 2. The fire was opened from the 32nd floor of a hotel. As a result of the incident, at least 50 people were killed, about 400 injured. 

The killer has been described as a lone-gunman by major TV stations such as CNN, reporting on the incident. There has not been talk of terrorism or a religious and culturally- driven motive. 

It is noteworthy that the country of Serbia has the second highest gun ownership rate after the United States, and does not experience incidents of public shootings. Similarly, in Switzerland, where citizens can acquire guns legally, the problem does not generally exist. What accounts for this cultural phenomenon?
