Las Vegas police: Still no clear motive in mass shooting

Share

Fifty-eight people were killed and almost 500 were injured in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

"This was a remarkable effort by a courageous and remarkable man", McMahill said.

"We still do not have a clear motive or reason why", Undersheriff Kevin McMahill of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told reporters Friday, adding that law enforcement was continuing to search for answers with "great tenacity". "We have looked at literally everything". "We will not stop until we have the truth".

The 64-year-old mass shooter purchased the illuminating ammunition three weeks before the October 1 shooting spree that left 58 people dead at a country music festival on the Vegas strip, The Associated Press reported.

The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the massacre, but McMahill said authorities had not uncovered "no known nexus" between the jihadist group and Paddock.

Investigators believe Paddock hired a prostitute in the days leading up to the shooting and were interviewing other call girls for information, a US official briefed by federal law enforcement officials said.

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said he was surprised Paddock had provided so few clues, and that has proved challenging. Hundreds of thousands of spectators attended, including Malia Obama, daughter of the ex-us president Barack Obama .

Paddock wasn't able to move into the room until Saturday, said the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and disclosed the information to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Mr Lankford also noted the bunker that Paddock created in the hotel room, which he outfitted with surveillance cameras to see anyone approaching.

Among popular cruise destinations in the Middle East are Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Oman, the Jordanian port of Aqaba, Bahrain, Qatar and a number of Egyptian ports.

It is unusual to have so few clues five days after a mass shooting.

What officers have found is that Paddock planned his attack meticulously.

He requested an upper-floor room overlooking the festival, stockpiled 23 guns, a dozen of them modified to fire continuously like an automatic weapon, with a bump stock device.

TMZ reported that Paddock booked two rooms at Chicago's Blackstone Hotel that overlooked the popular Lollapalooza festival in August.

The family of a California man killed in the Las Vegas shooting is asking a judge to appoint a special administrator to take control of the gunman's assets.

Paddock bought the.308-caliber and.223-caliber tracer ammunition from a private buyer he met at a Phoenix gun show, a law enforcement official not authorized to comment on the investigation said on condition of anonymity.

Investigators also found a note containing numbers inside the hotel suite, but police say it was not a suicide note or manifesto.

Danley returned on Tuesday from the Philippines, where Paddock had sent her before the attack and was being interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
