Coroner: Gunfire killed all 58 victims in Las Vegas shooting

All 58 victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting died of gunshot wounds, a coroner said Thursday, revealing that no one was trampled to death trying to escape from an outdoor concert that turned into a massacre.

The Clark County coroner said Thursday all of those who died during the October 1 shooting were killed by "a gunshot wound or wounds".

Still, almost three months later, investigators have not yet publicly released a motive in what's considered the deadliest mass shooting in American history. Fifty-eight people were killed, and hundreds injured, according to CBS News.

The coroner also said the gunman died from a "gunshot wound to the head". All the deaths have been ruled homicides. Most had been shot in the head, chest or back.

Federal Bureau of Investigation officials warn it may take a full year for investigators to release a report on the motive behind the Las Vegas massacre.

Nearly three months after the shooting, investigators are still working to determine Paddock's motive.

The cause and manner of death was delayed because Paddock's brain tissue was being examined by the Stanford University Department of Pathology.

"[Our report] is focusing a large part on the why, OK?" he told the Review-Journal. "Which is what everybody wants to know", he said during the interview at the FBI's Las Vegas office.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said last month that Paddock fired more than 1,100 shots.

"This individual was status-driven, based on how he liked to be recognized in the casino environment and how he liked to be recognized by his friends and family", he said.

"We're going to have, I think, the best digital schematic of what happened and where it happened and how it happened that you can come up with", Rouse told the newspaper. "And it was very helpful to us".
