Las Vegas killer described his gambling habits, unusual lifestyle in 2013 lawsuit

The front entrance to the Route 91 festival venue in Las Vegas Nevada

In addition to the 58 people who died, almost 500 were injured, some by gunfire, some trampled or otherwise hurt while running for cover.

"We are trying to prove his intent or understand his intent and the history associated with this and whether or not he has any accomplices", Lombardo said.

Lombardo again expressed frustration with the pace of the investigation, but not with the investigators who have yet to pinpoint the motive behind the shooter's decision to fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel casino on a Las Vegas Strip concert crowd of 22,000 on October 1. At 10.05 p.m, Paddock shot numerous rounds into the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival from his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

He reportedly was exhibiting many antisocial traits that are typical of past mass shooters, according to one source who spoke to ABC News anonymously.

Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo had previously travelled to Mumbai after the 2008 attacks, and said the lessons he learned there had helped shape his officers' fast response to Paddock's shooting.

"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.

"We still do not have a clear motive or reason why", Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said.

"We do not believe there is one particular event in the suspect's life for us to key on", he said. "I looked out a few times, but then realized the shooting was coming from above me and thought I shouldn't open the curtains in case the police had a sniper and may fire back".

Las Vegas' Democratic Congresswoman Dina Titus was the only speaker who touched on the subject of gun violence and politics, saying, "Let us also pray for those who have power that they will have the wisdom, the courage, and the resolve to find ways to end the gun violence that plagues our nation".

And now that 64-year-old Stephen Paddock is also the gunman responsible for the worst mass shooting in modern US history, the question is whether any of that has anything to do with the horrific thing that has made him infamous.


"As I have conveyed to you from the very beginning - and your zest for information and my zest to ensure the public's safety, and the calming of their minds - is some things are going to change", the sheriff said. "You know, we were still clearing that room, the curtains, moving the curtains", Mr Donaldson said. A lot of these ports are said to have been in Europe and the Middle East - mostly Spain, Italy, Greece, and the UAE, reported CNN.

Police have questioned Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, who has co-operated with police since she returned home from the Philippines earlier this week.

"The investigation is being led by the folks in Las Vegas, and we're in constant conversation with the fusion center here in MA, which is in constant contact with them", Baker said.

They also discovered several phones, laptops and tools in the "eerie" room.

"That's been a matter of discussion, whether what I said was accurate or not".

"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", Marilou Danley, 62, said in a statement read by her lawyer outside Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters in Los Angeles.

Officers also found a handwritten note with calculations of distance and trajectory from his window to the crowd below, Newton said.

Bitsko said the level of preparation and work inside, including setting up wires for the cameras, suggested that it took Paddock "days to finish" getting it all ready.

Authorities recovered 23 guns from Paddock's room, police said.
