WHY? Deadliest Shooting in U.S. History -- Is this a Retirement issue, or not?

Mourning Las Vegas Deaths
How can a 64-year old man, having lived a long life but with lots more possibilities... how can he randomly, with totally no regard, take all these lives in Las Vegas?
At this point, 1pm eastern time on 10.2.17 -- 58 dead, 500+ injured.
He was "only" 64 for Pete's sake! He could have had 20 more years. 30 more years!
He appears to have lived an absolutely normal life with no criminal background. He lives in a senior community in Nevada, nothing was found in the house (some firearms but he always owned a few). His brother can't believe what's happening. He leaves behind a 90-year old mother who wonders what the heck happened. Seriously?
Why on earth would someone do this? I know. No answers... but I keep thinking about his age. I don't get it!
Is life so totally worthless (both his own and all the lives he ended)?
Is this just one more person with a breakdown?
Is this a retirement issue?
Is retired life REALLY that bad?
Did he fall into depression in his retired years?
Did he live a silent, sad lifestyle?
Retirees: what do YOU think? I am trying to process what happened.
