Shop that sold gun to Las Vegas shooter forced into lockdown

Shop that sold gun to Las Vegas shooter forced into lockdown

Paddock's girlfriend Marilou Danley, 62, who was in the Philippines at the time of the shooting, was met by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents at the airport in Los Angeles late on Tuesday night, according to a law enforcement official.

Paddock transferred $100,000 to the Philippines in the days before the shooting, the AP reported.

Authorities are grasping to find a motive for Paddock, a 64-year-old retiree and high-stakes gambler.

Some 489 people were also injured when Paddock strafed an outdoor concert with gunfire on Sunday night from his 32nd-floor suite of the Mandalay Bay hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.

Almost two dozen guns were recovered in Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock's hotel room and officials said they also found a pair of bump stocks.

Authorities also found thousands of rounds of ammunition in Paddock's Mesquite home, and an ingredient used in explosives was discovered inside the killer's auto.

Paddock was using her identification leading up to the shooting.

The guard was "very heroic" and provided police with information about the shooter's location, McMahill said.

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something frightful like this was going to happen", Danley, 62, said in the statement released by her lawyer, Matt Lombard.

Investigators now believe Paddock meant to survive the massacre, Las Vegas police Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said.

Trump unhappy with top health official over travel
He actually gets very unfair press in that regard. The committee wants details by October 10. I do know that he deserves to be.

The weekend before the shooting, Paddock rented a room in another Las Vegas hotel, the Ogden.

"As the President comes here, he looks at the victims, he looks at the mothers burying their children and the children burying their parents, this is exactly the time to remember this episode and have these kinds of hard conversations", Rosen said. Philippines immigration bureau spokeswoman Antonette Mangrobang said authorities there had been working with United States officials. She said she was initially pleased when Paddock wired her money in the Philippines to buy a house for her family, but she later anxious it was a way to break up with her.

Why did he continue firing with an arsenal of weapons for nine to 11 minutes, leaving at least 58 people dead and more than 500 with gunshot wounds or stampede injuries? We don't know yet. "He said he was visiting local firearms shops".

"He sent her away so that he can plan what he is planning without interruptions", her sister, whose name was not revealed, told the Seven Network.

She said she doesn't think Trump is a compassionate person.

US President Donald Trump will visit Las Vegas on Wednesday to try to soothe a city shaken by the deadliest shooting spree in modern US history in a trip that will test his ability to console a grieving nation. "She sends cookies to my mom".

Jill Snyder, the special agent in charge at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, tells "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday that Paddock purchased 33 firearms, mostly rifles, between October 2016 and September 28, three days before he opened fire on a concert crowd.

Danley lived with Paddock in Mesquite, Nevada, northeast of Las Vegas.

Law enforcement officials said that Paddock did not have a criminal record, and would not have had any issue passing any background check.
