  • A member of the FBI leaves the Mandalay Bay hotel following the mass shooting in Las Vegas. Police and FBI are frantically looking for information about what might have motivated gunman Stephen Paddock

"He had a dark and twisted side".

"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.

Paddock amassed a cache of weapons over the last 13 months, purchasing a haul of 33 guns, some of which had been modified with bump-stocks, or devices that enable guns to operate like fully automatic weapons. But they can also give away the shooter's position.

Paddock's hotel suite was on the 32nd floor of the hotel.

"Very eerie. Yeah, the dust from the explosive breach". We know country music fans who were there and we know people who know some of the victims.

In a possible sign he was contemplating massacres at other sites, he also booked rooms overlooking the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago in August and the Life Is Beautiful show near the Vegas Strip in late September, according to authorities reconstructing his movements leading up to the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Because so few people knew Paddock well, investigators will have a harder time probing his background for clues, Southers said.

Donald Trump has said the security guard "did a good job", while Undersheriff McMahill described him as "a true hero". But we were touched by what happened in Vegas.

Was he planning to escape?


Among popular cruise destinations in the Middle East are Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Oman, the Jordanian port of Aqaba, Bahrain, Qatar and a number of Egyptian ports.

Andrew McCabe, the deputy director of the FBI, conceded on Wednesday the case was "somewhat different than many of the ones we've dealt with in the past". That may help the public better predict who might be at risk for radicalizing and prevent future attacks, O'Toole said.

She said: "ISIS has rarely claimed attacks that were not by either their members or sympathisers". "We can confirm that there was no guest under that name who stayed at our hotel in August during the Lollapalooza music festival", said Blackstone hotel spokeswoman Emmy Carragher.

59 people were killed and at least 4527 injured when a crazed gunman opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas.

Authorities are still working to determine the shooter's motives, which still remain largely a mystery a week after the massacre.

The F.B.I. agents and police investigators have checked many videos from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in order to find out the motive of mass shooting which turned the 64-year-old Stephen Paddock into a mass murderer.

However, that may change as the investigation unfolds, he said.

Marilou Danley (pictured left) is helping police with their questions. It would have been a target similar to the one in Las Vegas - huge crowds packed into an outdoor space beneath tall buildings - but with far more people.

"Today, in our investigation, we don't have any of that uncovered. But one thing we can't train for is the crazies". They're calling for anyone who knows anything to call them. "We have looked at literally everything".

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Craig Paddock's anti-social personality will only hamper investigators as they try to figure to piece together what led to the shooting. "We all want answers".
