Sheriff: Las Vegas Shooter Paddock May Have Been 'RADICALIZED'

Sheriff: Las Vegas Shooter Paddock May Have Been 'RADICALIZED'

Police said they believed he had used 10 suitcases to smuggle the weapons up to the room.

As for the investigation into the shooting, he said: "Yeah, they're learning a lot more".

Investigators are yet to discover Paddock's motive for the shooting.

The 64 year-old man is a native of Nevada.

"It's fantastic that security guard didn't sustain additional injury", the sheriff said. Paddock killed himself before police reached his hotel room.

Marilou Danley quizzedThe Las Vegas gunman's girlfriend is being quizzed by police. Officers quickly realized there was no one else in the rooms and announced over the radio that the suspect was down.

Police entered the hotel to begin working their way to the shooter's sniper nest.

Senior congressional Republicans said Wednesday they were open to considering legislation banning "bump stocks" like Paddock used to effectively convert semi-automatic rifles into fully automated weapons.

Her sister said that Danley, who moved to the United States in 1989, would most likely have stopped Sunday's massacre if she had been there, adding that Danley was "in love" with Paddock.

Paddock reportedly reserved a room at the Mandalay Bay hotel using some of her documents.

"Was he doing pre-surveillance?"

Authorities in the Philippines had communicated with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the US Department of Homeland Security regarding her travel, the spokeswoman said. All but three of the dead had been identified by Tuesday afternoon, Lombardo said. He did not detail what the note said.

The FBI recently said it had not found any link to terrorism so far.

Stephen Paddock lived with his partner, Marilou Danley, in a retirement community in Mesquite, Nevada, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of the gunman behind the Las Vegas shooting, said in a statement that she was not aware that "something frightful like this was going to happen".

While she was there, Paddock wired her money so she could buy a house for herself and her family, Danley said in her statement. She was in the Philippines at the time of the shooting, according to media reports.

Armed with dozens of guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition he purchased legally, Paddock killed at least 59 people who were among some 22,000 people attending a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip. "She was away so that she will be not there to interfere with what he's planning", one of her sisters in Australia told local reporters.

He discussed his meetings with hospitalized patients, and "we ask God to ease their suffering".

Authorities are investigating whether Paddock acted alone or had accomplices.

A little earlier, and the sheriff of Las Vegas Joe Lombardo, however, had explained that there was not, to his knowledge, the link between the shooter and the AR.

"Do you think this was all accomplished on his own?"

"You have to make an assumption that he had some help at some point", Lombardo said.

Considering the number of weapons Paddock collected and explosives he had stockpiled in his auto, Lombardo told reporters he finds it hard to believe Paddock could have carried out the massacre on his own. "It's troublesome for the amount of stuff he had at both residences unassisted".
