All 58 people killed during the massacre at the country music festival in Las Vegas on October 1 died of gunshot wounds, a Clark County Coroner’s report confirmed Thursday.

The report showed that none of the victims died from injuries related to their attempts to escape.

The deaths of all the victims killed by gunman 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, during the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival were ruled as homicides.

 "Paddock died of a self-inflicted gunshot to the mouth. Stephen Paddock's only wound and his death was ruled a suicide," said Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg.

Fudenberg says he waited to release autopsy discoveries until all the families were given the information.
