Thousands mourn slain officer as Las Vegas probe goes on

Thousands mourn slain officer as Las Vegas probe goes on

Once the event kicked off on August 3rd, Paddock had booked a second room.

The shooter had rooms booked at the Blackstone Hotel, which is located behind Grant Park, the main site of the music festival. We are cooperating with the authorities on this matter.

Hundreds were injured and 58 killed when Paddock rained bullets from a nearby hotel tower into crowds attending an outdoor country music festival.

Still, Paddock was considered a high-value player, and casinos rewarded his gambling with perks that included free trips, rooms, meals and other luxuries, his brother said.

The two windows that Paddock broke in order to fire his weapons had direct views of the concert venue and at the fuel tanks, the Review-Journal reported. Lombardo said at a news conference.

Meanwhile, the number of wounded in the Sunday night massacre has been lowered from more than 500 to 489.

Danley spent much of the day being questioned by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in Los Angeles, where she arrived from the Philippines.

Paddock reportedly requested a room with a view, but never showed up for his reservation, according to TMZ sources. "It goes through your mind but I think the biggest thing is that you can trust that the organizers here will have done everything that they can to limit the possibility of something like that happening". An unnamed hotel source also confirmed the information to DNAinfo, the publication said.

The celebrity blog told of Paddock not showing despite asking for rooms that overlooked Grant Park - where 400,000 concert goers including Malia Obama converged this summer.

Lombardo said the shooter lived a "secret life" and "meticulously planned" the worst domestic attack in recent United States history.

Authorities discovered Paddock's interest in the two cities by examining his communications and electronic equipment, NBC News said. Though activity like this generates an alert, officials said they get tens of thousands of similar alerts every week.

Clark County Sheriff did share on Wednesday night said Paddock had rented an apartment in another high-rise above another music festival a week earlier, though he could not say why.

He said he felt it was unlikely Paddock could have pulled off the elaborate plan alone, though investigators have no idea who may have helped him.
