Gunman Fired For About Nine To 11 Minutes - Las Vegas Police

As Las Vegas heals after the worst mass shooting in modern US history, authorities are working hard to find out what sparked the deadly attack.

They say Stephen Paddock rented rooms in high-rises overlooking the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago in August and over the Life is lovely festival near the Vegas Strip in September.

He said it was likely Paddock, who had a collection of almost 50 firearms, had help from others to put together such a large cache without attracting notice.

"The Steve I knew two weeks ago is no longer the guy who did that thing", Eric Paddock said of his brother Thursday.

Marilou Danley returned to the United States on Tuesday night from the Philippines.

The girlfriend of the gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history denied Wednesday having any prior knowledge of the massacre. "You gotta make the assumption that he had to have some help at some point", said Sheriff Joseph Lombardo.

According to her lawyer, Matt Lombard, the cash was for her to buy a home for her and her family.

The sheriff also mentioned the gunman's vehicle, which had multiple containers of the explosive material Tannerite and 1,600 rounds of ammunition inside.

Paddock's rampage could have resulted in even more deaths than the 59 reported without the fearless actions of Campos. Paddock fired over 200 rounds when he was discovered .

"She was sent away".

The source, which the publication described as not being "directly involved in the investigation", said Paddock rented a series of condos overlooking the festival.

Lombardo said Paddock had 1,600 rounds of ammunition in his auto, along with fertilizer that can be used to make explosives and 50 pounds of Tannerite, an explosive substance.

Lombardo said it was possible that the shooter, who spent the eight hours before the killings gambling, was "working out all of this on his own" before reaffirming his suspicion that he did not act alone.

The suspect had stockpiled weapons in his hotel room.

Investigators also revealed that Paddock had rented a condo overlooking the site of the Life is lovely music festival back in September.

The events came after US President Donald Trump visited Las Vegas with first lady Melania Trump, expressing the sorrow and shock felt by the nation. "We know that your sorrow feels endless".
