Vegas Shooter lived like a vampire: 'I don't do sun'

Vegas Shooter lived like a vampire: 'I don't do sun'”

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock reportedly gambled all night and slept during the day. The deposition was from four years ago.

Paddock said he wagered up to $1 million per night, but admitted to retrieving his own drinks so as to avoid tipping cocktail waitresses.

According to officials, Paddock is responsible for killing 58 people and wounding hundreds more in the worst mass shooting in American history.

The deposition, filed four years before Paddock executed the deadliest mass shooting in USA history, was part of a lawsuit that he filed against the Cosmopolitan Hotel after injuring his hamstring in a 2011 slip and fall incident.

The revelations came as Paddock's brother Bruce told NBC News he had been questioned twice by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, including a four-and-a-half hour grilling by a profiler.

The pills were prescribed by Nevada internist Steven P. Winkler, whom Paddock said he kept on retainer. It's not clear when he last took the drug.

Paddock at times seemed to come off as arrogant and sarcastic during the deposition, according to CNN.

"I'll gamble all night", he said, in what CNN called the first account of his life in his own words.

"No, it's not", Paddock said.
But there was no discussion on guns after that. Sometimes, he'd travel "maybe upwards of three weeks out of a month", CNN reported. He stayed in casino hotel rooms, which he said were nearly always provided for free, and he said that he opened drinks at the hotel without drinking them because everything was comped. "And if you aren't comped at casinos, you wouldn't understand".

"How do I know?"

When lawyers asked at the deposition if he were drunk at the time of the accident, he testified he was "perfectly sober". "Because I know some of the video poker players that play big".

"At the stakes I play, you want to have all your wits about you, or as much wit as I have", he said. When asked if he ever spent time by the pool he responded "I don't do sun".

During the deposition, lawyers asked why, on the night of his fall, he opened a bottle of sake in his room if he didn't drink it.

"A million dollars", Paddock replied.

Paddock also said that he would take Valium for "anxiousness", but told lawyers that he had no criminal record or history of mental illness.

Paddock worked for a time as an Internal Revenue Service agent, then began to invest in real estate, CNN reported.

Paddock described a nomadic lifestyle in his testimony, saying he travelled between casinos roughly 95 percent of the time, staying in free hotel rooms offered to him by virtue of his status as a high dollar gambler.

"He cared about everybody's finances, he cared about everybody's cars, he cared about-he actually cared about people", she said, while crying.

"I was my normal happy-go-lucky self", he said.
