Gunman may have planned more attacks — WHAT'S HAPPENING

Gunman may have planned more attacks — WHAT'S HAPPENING”

The FBI joined with the Las Vegas police pleaded for information, launching a public information campaign - using the slogan "Know Something, Say Something" - seeking information about 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 awful like this was going to happen", she said. "I have faith in God, and I will continue to pray for everyone who has been harmed or hurt".

She said he bought her a ticket to the Philippines about two weeks ago, then wired her moneyso she could buy herself a house there.

Weinreich said Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, once worked at the casino and initially got on Paddock's good side by leading him to a machine where someone had lost tens of thousands of dollars.

"I was grateful, but honestly, I was anxious, that first, the unexpected trip home, and then the money, was a way of breaking up with me", Danley said.

"It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone", she said in the statement.

Paddock killed 58 people and wounded more than 500 others before killing himself in his room at the Mandalay Bay hotel casino, authorities said.

A US official said authorities are looking into the possibility that Paddock was planning additional attacks, including a auto bombing.

County Clark Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said hundreds of officers had spent days building a profile of the shooter, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock.

"Currently she's a person of interest", Lombardo said at a news conference Tuesday.

Lombard said he and his client were "fully cooperating" with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Las Vegas Police Department.

Bullets from Sunday night's Las Vegas shooting spree hit a jet fuel tank at a nearby airport, a spokesman for McCarran International Airport told the Herald last night. Salman was later arrested and charged with aiding and abetting terrorism and obstructing justice.

Nevada gambling regulators said they were sorting through documents for clues about him and Danley. Investigators still have to run down any potential leads Danley may provide.

What officers have found is that Paddock planned his attack meticulously.

Authorities expressed bafflement at what could have motivated the rampage.

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told CNBC that the lack of a clear motive was a "surprise" in this mass shooting. "We have looked at everything, literally, to include the suspect's personal life, any political affiliation, his social behaviors, economic situation, and any potential radicalization that so many have claimed".

"Yes", the sheriff said, but did not go into further detail. He echoed authorities in saying that they have not identified a motive. "I wish I did". "Somebody that may have seen something or know something". "Jet fuel itself sitting there in a big wet pile is very hard to ignite". There was one camera on a room service cart in the hallway, police said.

Almost 500 concertgoers were wounded either by the barrage of bullets or in the stampede when Paddock opened fire.

Campos' actions may have distracted Paddock, possibly saving lives of many people below at the country music festival.

They know he had a plan to survive the shooting and try to escape, though would not say how.

In addition to guns found in the suite, investigators later found another 26 guns at two other properties in Nevada, as well as collections of ammunition and a chemical that can be used to make bombs.

Paddock reportedly had been stockpiling firearms since 1982 and purchased 33 guns in the past year. "That's why you can't find out anything about him", his brother Eric Paddock said from his home in Florida.

Those in Paddock's life said they had no inkling of what was to come. Twelve of the rifles there were fitted with so-called bump stocks, officials said, allowing the guns to be fired nearly as though they were automatic weapons.

Paddock had no known criminal history. Lombardo said the attack was the obvious outcome of meticulous planning.

The official wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. "She was sent away". As of midday Wednesday, there was no indication she was aware of Paddock's plans, they said. He speculated Stephen might have tried to quietly ensure Danley's financial security. "The people he loved he took care of, and as he was descending into hell he took care of her".

The number of injured was also adjusted to 489.
