Vegas shooter had camera in peephole, 2 in the hallway

Vegas shooter had camera in peephole, 2 in the hallway”

Police had no prior knowledge of the gunman before the attack.

The FBI said it had found "no connection with an global terrorist group" after Islamic State rushed to claim responsibility for the massacre. "That's the one in this one, and we are not there yet", FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was quoted by The Associated Press as saying.

After Sunday night's attack, authorities in the United States, the Philippines and Australia joined efforts to search for Danley, hoping she might shed some light on the motive behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history. She left Australia for the U.S.in 1989, where she worked in casinos, it said.

Lombardo said 16 rifles and a handgun were found in the room.

Police said he owned two properties in Nevada, the home in Mesquite and another in Reno.

One U.S. official discounted a claim of responsibility that was made by Islamic State.

While some officials have suggested the gunman had a history of psychological issues, this has not been confirmed. The White House and many Republicans said it was a time to mourn rather than launch into political battles, while some Democrats renewed calls for gun safety legislation. Its claim did not include the gunman's name and showed no proof.

A search of his auto turned up a supply of ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer that can be formed into explosives and was used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing of a federal office building that killed 168 people, Lombardo said. A SWAT team broke down the door to the hotel room.

Police found several more weapons at Paddock's home in Mesquite, about 90 miles (145 km) northeast of Las Vegas, Mesquite police spokesman Quinn Averett told reporters. "A mother, a grandmother, a sister, a friend", said one sister. One resident at a residence on Del Webb Parkway said he and his wife never saw Stephen Paddock, but saw his girlfriend as recently as this summer.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday didn't say whether he thought the shooting was an act of domestic terrorism.

"He was doing everything possible to see how he could escape", Las Vegas Police Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said, declining to detail specifics.

Leaders from around the world expressed shock and sadness at the news.

In the wake of the deadly attack, the Eastside Cannary Casino Gun Show that was expected to be held in Las Vegas this weekend has been canceled, David Strow of Boyd Gaming Corporation tells CNN.

"People were just dropping to the ground".

In the quiet cul-de-sac where the 64-year-old lived, his neighbours said he was a quiet man who was frequently on a diet.

"It's a devastating time", the sheriff said.

"Probably 100 shots at a time", Smith said.

"I know she has to be devastated about what has happened", Dionne Waltrip said, adding that the family has received death threats after her father was erroneously identified online by some as the shooter.

Philippine police believe Paddock used identification belonging to Ms Danley when checking into the Mandalay Bay Resort.

"Pray for Las Vegas", the city's mayor tweeted.

"It was insane - I laid on top of the kids". The back of his shirt bore footmarks, after people ran over him in the panicked crowd. Paddock killed himself in the 32nd floor hotel room he used as a vantage point to rain bullets down on people attending the Route 91 Harvest festival. "We have no idea how this happened". Police said he killed himself as police entered his hotel room, ending the massacre. But the number of wounded and injured has been reduced to 489 from the figure of 527 that authorities gave earlier.

The attack stirred the fractious debate about gun ownership in the United States, which is protected by the Second Amendment to the Constitution, and about how much that right should be subject to controls.

"Most shooters are fairly young", Dugan said.

"This must stop. It is positively infuriating that my colleagues in Congress are so afraid of the gun industry that they pretend there aren't public policy responses to this epidemic".

People close to the investigation also said that in the weeks before the attack, Paddock transferred a large amount of money - close to $100,000 - to someone in the Philippines, possibly his girlfriend.
