Five days after mass shooting in Las Vegas, still no motive

Five days after mass shooting in Las Vegas, still no motive”

The Las Vegas Review-Journal recently reported that Paddock had been prescribed the anti-anxiety drug diazepam - also known by its brand name, Valium.

Five days after the deadliest mass shooting in recent U.S. history, authorities acknowledged on Friday that they have not uncovered a "clear motive" for the gunman.

The Clark County official said the authorities have looked at gunman Stephen Paddock's personal life, political affiliation, economic situation and any potential radicalisation.

Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old gambler and real estate investor, rained down about 1,600 rounds of ammo from a 32th-floor suite of Mandalay Bay hotel into a crowd of more than 22,000 people attending a country music festival, killing at least 59 and injuring almost 500 on Sunday. "We are looking at every aspect from birth to death of this suspect and this case".

He said investigators are aware the Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but so far there is no evidence that it had a role. "What I can not confirm to you today, and what we continue to investigate is whether anybody else may have known about this incident before he carried it out", the officer said.

But police have said they suspect Paddock may have had assistance at some point before the killings, based on the large number of guns, ammunition and explosives that were found in the hotel suite, his home, his vehicle and a second home searched in Reno.

He added that authorities were "very confident" Paddock was alone in his hotel room, but said police continue to investigate if anyone had prior knowledge of the attack.

Authorities have said that 12 of the weapons recovered from Paddock's hotel suite were equipped with so-called bump-stock devices that enable semi-automatic rifles to be operated as if they were fully automatic machine-guns.

Investigators are, however, "keenly interested" in Paddock's medical status at the time of the shooting, McMahill said.

Federal Bureau of Investigation officials did not immediately respond to questions about why.
