(KGTV) -- New photos and video show the hotel suite 64-year-old Stephen Paddock turned into a sniper's perch from which he would gun down nearly 600 victims, killing 59, Sunday night.

The images, obtained by ABC News, show a hallway view of Paddock's room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, with the door busted and covered with police tape.

One rifle is also seen on the floor of the hotel room with a crime scene tag next to it.

Paddock opened fire on a music festival crowd from a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, killing at least 59 people and injuring at least 527 others.

A Boston 25 News reporter tweeted a photo purporting to be the inside of Paddock's room showing an assault rifle and dozens of casings on the floor strewn on floor.
