Authorities said 64-year-old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nev., fired more than 1,100 rounds from his suite on the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay hotel.

Hole performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on some victims, and managed to pull others to safety, according to state Rep. Niraj Antani, who presented her with the resolution.

Antani said the honor was for Hole earning the 2017 Nurse Hero Award given by the Ohio March of Dimes.
