Las Vegas police say Stephen Paddock's SUV found

Las Vegas police say Stephen Paddock's SUV found”

Officers asked for help finding the SUV soon after Paddock rained bullets from his Mandalay Bay hotel room onto concertgoers at the Route 91 country music festival. The number of people injured was downgraded from 527 to 489, and police said the count of 59 fatalities includes shooter Stephen Paddock.

"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 disgusting like this was going to happen", Danley, 62, said in a statement read to reporters by her lawyer in Los Angeles, where she was being questioned.

Investigators are still piecing together the motives for the shooting that killed at least 58 people and are now focused on one thing: what do we know about Marilou Danley?

Stephen Paddock, a reputed heavy gambler, allegedly wired almost $100,000 to the Philippines prior to the shooting in which he took his own life.

The briefing came after Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, was questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and said she had no idea he was "planning violence against anyone". Seven days later, she flew to Hong Kong, returning to Manila on the 25th.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Paddock, 64, had 1600 rounds of ammunition and several containers of an explosive commonly used in target shooting that totalled about 22kg in his vehicle.

Investigators are still trying to determine what motivated Paddock to open fire from a high-rise hotel room. The Las Vegas sheriff said of Campos, "His bravery was unbelievable". It wasn't immediately known if Paddock had earlier planned an attack on that venue. The Chicago Police Department said Thursday it is aware of the booking.

If Paddock did have any accomplice, there remained no evidence as yet "to indicate terrorism", said Aaron Rouse, FBI special agent in charge of the Las Vegas field office.

"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 terrible like this was going to happen", Ms Danley said in a statement read by her lawyer outside Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters in Los Angeles. All but three of those weapons were bought in a single month, October 2016, according to Lombardo.

"What we know is that Stephen Paddock is a man who spent decades acquiring weapons and ammo and living a secret life, much of which will never be fully understood", he said.

Paddock had four video cameras at his hotel room, Lombardo said.

Twelve of the rifles there were fitted with so-called bump stocks, allowing the guns to be fired nearly as though they were automatic weapons.
