Photos from the hotel room of mass murderer Stephen Paddock have been leaked to the media and began circulating on the Internet.
The pictures show the strewn body of Paddock on the floor of his Mandalay Bay hotel room in Las Vegas, next to some of the arsenal he used in the massacre that claimed 59 lives.
Paddock’s legs and feet are visible in the photo along with his hands covered by black gloves.
One gun is seen over his feet, another near his body and one appears to be under him.
The two other photos show a cache of weapons scattered about the floor and furniture of his suite.
There also appeared to be a note left on a table near Paddock’s body.
A gruesome photo showed Paddock’s head lying in a pool of his own blood.
According to police, Paddock shot at the officers as they broke into his room but committed suicide before they got inside, the Daily Mail reported.
Police believe Paddock was aware of the authorities closing in on him because of cameras he had positioned in his room and in the hallway, including one over the peephole of his suite, according to the Mail.
Paddock killed 59 people and injured more than 500 in, what became, the deadliest mass shooting in American history.

But on Tuesday, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said it was possible that Paddock had been radicalized
