Cryptic note found at Las Vegas shooter's hotel room

Las Vegas

The attack remains the worst mass shooting in modern USA history, but even before this shootings have become commonplace and gun regulation is a continued discussion whether it be gun safety, better background checks, or restricting assault rifles and military-style weapons.

The Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend Marilou Danley was interviewed by investigators on Wednesday but said little publicly to shed any light on the motive of Stephen Paddock, who killed 59 people and wounded more than 500 in the shooting spree. "You've got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point", Lombardo said.

"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". That festival featured Chicago's Chance The Rapper, who also performed at Lollapalooza on August 5.

Undersheriff Kevin McMahill told CNN this evening that authorities also haven't determined what Paddock meant to do with his explosives-stocked vehicle at the Mandalay Bay hotel, which included 1,600 rounds of ammunition as well as ready-to-use tannerite and two mixer chemicals, ammonium nitrate and aluminum chloride. If he had planned to escape, he may have meant to target other events with large crowds.

Las Vegas police say Paddock also rented hotel rooms near the "Life is Beautiful" festival in Las Vegas last month, the Daily News said, citing a report in the Las Vegas Review Journal.


The Chicago Tribune later reported that the Chicago Police Department is investigating the matter. In total, across three locations, 47 firearms were recovered. All the weapons were legally purchased in four states. However, there is still no evidence to indicate terrorism, such as connections to extremist groups, or an accomplice.

In the statement, she goes on to explain how Paddock bought her plane tickets to visit her family in the Philippines a little over two weeks ago.

A former worker at the Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa in Reno, Nevada, where Paddock frequently gambled, said he had a "god complex" and always expected quick service.

The investigation is ongoing.
