Police find auto sought in Las Vegas shooting

Police find auto sought in Las Vegas shooting

According to Las Vegas's sheriff, accused shooter Stehpen Paddock also rented a room near downtown Las Vegas last month at the same time as an alternative music festival nearby. He fired at tanks on airport property around 1,100 feet away from his hotel room and penetrated at least one with a bullet, the sources say. Danley said she thought it was his way of breaking up with her.

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

Minutes after the shooting began, a hotel security guard showed up outside his suite and Paddock shot him in the leg. A police official confirmed Thursday that Stephen Paddock, 64, booked a room at the Blackstone Hotel the same week the annual music festival was held.

She flew to LA on Tuesday and in a statement released by her lawyer after the Federal Bureau of Investigation interview, said Paddock "never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning something terrible like this was going to happen".

In late September he stayed at the Ogden near the Las Vegas strip that overlooked the Life is attractive concert - but nothing happened.

She arrived late Tuesday at the Los Angeles International Airport from the Philippines.

The 62-year-old grandmother reportedly claimed that Paddock had surprised her with a cheap air ticket a fortnight prior to the attack, to fly to the Philippines and visit her family, and had also wired her about $US100,000 to buy a house. Through her lawyer, Danley insisted she thought this was Paddock's way of preparing her for a breakup.
