LAS VEGAS (AP) — A high-stakes gambler who rained a hail of gunfire down on a crowd of country music fans, killing 59, took any specific motive for the 2017 attack to his grave, the FBI said Tuesday as it concluded the investigation into the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
The agency found no "single or clear motivating factor" to explain why Stephen Paddock carried out the attack from his suite in a high-rise casino hotel. The 64-year-old fatally shot himself as police closed in.

拉斯维加斯(美联社)——美国联邦调查局(FBI)周二在结束对美国现代历史上最致命的大规模枪击事件的调查后表示,仍没有找到“单一或明确的动机因素”来解释为什么史蒂芬·帕多克在一家高层赌场酒店的套房里发动袭击。2017年一名高风险赌徒向一群乡村音乐爱好者开枪,造成59人死亡,他将这次袭击的任何具体动机带进了坟墓。警方逼近时,这名64岁的男子开枪自杀了。

Paddock was a retired postal service worker, accountant and real estate investor who owned rental properties and homes in Reno and in a retirement community more than an hour's drive from Las Vegas. He also held a private pilot's license and liked to gamble tens of thousands of dollars at a time playing high-stakes video poker.

帕多克是一名退休的邮政服务人员、会计和房地产投资者,他在里诺和一个离拉斯维加斯一个多小时车程的退休社区拥有出租房屋。他还持有私人飞机驾驶执照,喜欢一次豪赌数万美元去玩高风险的视频扑克。

unstable home and he felt a need to be self-reliant.
Police characterized him as a loner with no religious or political affiliations who began stockpiling weapons about a year before the attack. He spent more than $1.5 million in the two years before the shooting and distanced himself from his girlfriend and family.

家庭不稳定,他觉得需要自力更生。警方称他是一个没有宗教或政治背景的孤独者,在袭击发生前一年左右就开始囤积武器。在枪击事件发生前的两年里,他花了150多万美元,与女友和家人保持距离。

Paddock's gambling habits made him a sought-after casino patron. Mandalay Bay employees readily let him use a service elevator to take multiple suitcases to the $590-per-night suite he had been provided for free. Authorities said he asked for the room, which had a commanding view of the Strip and the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert grounds across the street.

帕多克的赌博习惯使他成为赌场炙手可热的顾客。曼德勒海湾酒店的员工很乐意让他乘坐服务电梯,把多个行李箱搬到免费提供的每晚590美元的套房。当局说,他要的是可以俯瞰加沙地带和91号公路对面丰收节音乐会场地的房间。

The night of the massacre, Paddock used assault-style rifles to fire more than 1,000 rounds in 11 minutes into the crowd of 22,000 music fans. Most of the rifles were fitted with rapid-fire "bump stock" devices and high-capacity magazines. Some had bipod braces and scopes. Authorities said Paddock's guns had been legally purchased.

大屠杀当晚,帕多克使用突击步枪在11分钟内向2.2万名音乐爱好者发射了1000多发子弹。大多数步枪都配备了速射“弹夹”装置和大容量弹匣。有些有两脚支架和瞄准镜。官方称帕多克的枪支是合法购买的。

"He acted alone. He committed a heinous act. He died by his own hand," Rouse said. "If he wanted to leave a message, he would have left a message. Bottom line is he didn't want people to know."

“他是单独行动的。他犯了令人发指的罪行,他最后自杀了。”劳斯说,“如果他想留言,他早就会留言了。” 而底线是他不想让任何人知道。
