Las Vegas gunman's nightstand note contained figures for wind, trajectory and distance

Police and FBI agents, chasing down more than 1,000 dead-end leads since a gunman killed 58 people in Las Vegas, are seeking more help from the public in solving the central mystery of their investigation - the shooter's motive.

Paddock, a reclusive 64-year-old high-stakes gambler, rained bullets on the crowd at a country music festival Sunday night from his 32nd-floor hotel suite, killing 58 and wounding hundreds before taking his own life.

A maintenance worker also went to enter the 32 floor shortly after Campos was injured, but Campos "prevented him from receiving any injuries", Lombardo said. The room, which goes for USD 590 a night, was given to Paddock for free because he was a good customer who wagered tens of thousands of dollars each time he visited the casino, the person said.

The shooter in last weekend's attack in Las Vegas had his eyes on two other major US cities, officials told NBC News on Thursday.

Paddock also booked an Airbnb in a condo building overlooking the Life Is Beautiful festival in late September, leading investigators to gather video from the building to learn more.

"The prostitute, who did not give a name, said Paddock had a habit of hiring hookers on his frequent jaunts to Sin City, where he celebrated casino wins with 'really aggressive and violent sex", according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.

On Monday, Lombardo said security guard Jesus Campos was in a hallway of the Mandalay Bay hotel responding to a report of an open door when he heard drilling from Stephen Craig Paddock's room.

Lombardo said that the revised timeline is based on new information that emerged over the course of the ongoing investigation.

Where other mass killers have left behind a trail of plain-sight clues that help investigators quickly understand what drove them to violence, Paddock, 64, had almost no close friends, social media presence or other clear connections to the broader world.

Most recently, Paddock looked into the most recent Lollapalooza, going as far as to book a room in a Chicago hotel called The Blackstone, according to The Chicago Tribune.

Investigators have been looking into whether he was with a prostitute days before the shooting, were scrutinising cruises he took and were trying to make sense of a cryptic note with numbers jotted on it found in his hotel room, a federal official said on condition of anonymity.

Paddock was seen on numerous occasions in Las Vegas without anyone accompanying him and he gambled the night before the shooting, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said at a news conference. Lombardo said police have found "no evidence to show that there was a second shooter".

He then turned his gun on the 22,000 revelers at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival five minutes later, per the original timeline of 10:05pm, Lombardo said. Eric Paddock said he doesn't know how much his brother is worth.

His 64-year-old brother killed 58 people and injured 489 others at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival on October 1 by firing high-powered rifles from his high-rise hotel room at Mandalay Bay across the street.

What has become very clear to investigators is that Paddock meticulously planned the attack.

That drill work was not finished, Lombardo said. "I didn't think there was a problem with him", Michel said.

"I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was gonna be for the crowd", Newton said.

There was no discussion about guns in the deposition, CNN reported, other than Paddock's comment that he had a concealed weapon license in Texas.

"A week into this, a lot of people have been numb", said Red Cross spokesman Bill Fortune, who flew in from Colorado to help with the recovery effort.
