Guns, loaded high-capacity magazines found in Vegas shooter's room

Mass Shooting at Las Vegas Concert Leaves at Least 58 Dead

Paddock opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on Sunday night, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more.

The family of Geary Danley, the man who amateur, online detectives falsely labeled the Las Vegas shooter, made a statement Monday after they started getting death threats.

Danley's statement came after she went to the Los Angeles offices of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for questioning, according to a law enforcement official. He took his own life before authorities found 23 weapons in his hotel room and another 19 at his home in Mesquite, Nevada.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Paddock, 64, had 1600 rounds of ammunition and several containers of an explosive commonly used in target shooting that totalled about 22kg in his auto.

An unidentified acquaintance of Danley who was reached by the Reno Gazette-Journal said, "She had nothing to do with this psycho".

An attorney for the Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend says she had no knowledge of any plans by him to commit a massacre.

A native of the Philippines, Danley returned from her homeland Tuesday night to face questioning from federal investigators.

Police said Paddock had no criminal history, save a minor citation.

The girlfriend of the Las Vegas gunman said today she had no idea of the massacre he was plotting when he sent her on a trip overseas to see her family.

Danley addressed claims Paddock had given her money so she would be out of the country during the shooting.

"Currently, she's a person of interest", the sheriff said.

What drove Paddock to shed so much blood will be at the top of many people's lists of questions.

"Australia will support the United States authorities in their investigation in whatever way we can, but we have not had contact with Marilou Danley directly".

Outside the room investigators found one of the cameras mounted on a room service cart in the hallway, possibly giving Paddock a view of anyone approaching the room.

President Donald Trump is scheduled to arrive in Las Vegas Wednesday to meet with officials, first responders and some victims.

Paddock rented a room in downtown Las Vegas about the same time as an alternative music festival on September 22-24, where artists including Lorde, Chance the Rapper and Muse performed, but police do not know why.
