LAS VEGAS, NV - OCTOBER 02: Broken windows are seen on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino after a lone gunman opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest country music festival on October 2, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The gunman, identified as Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada, allegedly opened fire from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the music festival, leaving at least 50 people dead and hundreds injured. Police have confirmed that one suspect has been shot. The investigation is ongoing. (Photo by David Becker/Getty Images)

Stephen Paddock is a name that nobody in Las Vegas will ever forget. The retired accountant with no criminal record and no history of police activity, seemingly out of nowhere, unleashed the biggest mass killing in modern U.S. history. Paddock was fairly well-off, financially. He owned multiple properties and was a 7-star player at at least one Vegas casino, meaning he gambled big dollar amounts.

So it’s probably no surprise that Paddock was staying in the palatial suite, an 1800-square foot mansion of a room, on the 32nd floor at Mandalay Bay. He had been there for three days prior to the horrific shooting on October 1. And what has been a dream-come-true kind of vacation suite for so many, became the site for one of the biggest nightmares Las Vegas has ever seen.

One couple, Jeff & Andrea Bridges, of Charlotte North Carolina, stayed in this very same suite during their vacation a year ago. They have now shared the video they took of their room, which shows everything, including the view of the strip, the window Paddock smashed a year later, and the exact view Paddock had over the site of the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

Here’s the video, and new photos of some of the weapons used in Sunday’s shooting.
