Las Vegas gunman's girlfriend unaware of shooting plan

Las Vegas gunman's girlfriend unaware of shooting plan”

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

It comes a week on from the deadliest mass shooting in United States history when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowd from the nearby Mandalay Bay hotel, killing 58 people.

Paddock took his own life as police closed in.

McMahill also said investigators do not believe anyone other than Paddock accessed his suite before the attack, despite reports suggesting a room key was used to enter his suite while Paddock's auto was outside the hotel's parking garage.

Stephen Paddock, the man who let loose a barrage of bullets on the Las Vegas Strip in the worst mass shooting in modern history.

President Donald Trump, speaking at the White House, described the shooting as an "act of pure evil".

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents met her plane at Los Angeles International Airport and took her away for questioning, two USA officials briefed on the case said.

As of midday Wednesday, there was no indication she was aware of Paddock's plans, the officials said.

The girlfriend of Stephen Paddock, the man who massacred nearly 60 people attending a music festival in Las Vegas, has returned to the United States from the Philippines, according to media reports.

He noted that she was willing to share with law enforcement everything that she knew about Paddock.

Describing her relationship with Paddock, Danley said "I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man".

"The FBI has coordinated with the Philippine office of the Interpol to look for her". "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". I'll fix it. Do not panic.

"I believe, based on what I have been told, the issue was not that he was under financial stress", said Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri, the ranking Democrat on the Homeland Security Committee.

"Reasons that ran through Paddock's mind is unknown, but it was directly at the same time as Life Is Beautiful", Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said.

A Philippines immigration spokeswoman said Danley arrived in the Philippines on September 25 on a flight from Hong Kong.

The two sisters were interviewed anonymously, with their faces obscured.

In another tribute to the 58 killed and almost 500 injured, the casino marquees on the Las Vegas Strip went dark at 10:05 pm on Sunday to mark exactly a week passing since the shooting.

Employees at the vehicle dealership told CBS that Paddock was an "educated consumer" and Danley was "extremely complimentary" of her boyfriend, adding that he had "saved her" from an abusive relationship with her former husband. Salman has pleaded not guilty.

Stephen Paddock regularly played high-stakes video poker but was wealthy and had "no religious affiliation, no political affiliation", the brother said.

After meeting with first responders, Trump told reporters he "just met some of the most wonderful people" and that he met with patients that were "terribly wounded".

Or, as NY attorney Paul Shechtman noted, "Sadly, in America it's not a crime to know that your boyfriend has an arsenal of assault weapons".

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

Police searched a home in Mesquite, Nevada, about 85 miles from Las Vegas.

She said she came back to America because she was aware the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department wanted to speak to her.
