Hardik Patel then said that it's "not the Congress, but six crore Gujaratis who will fight against the BJP". Apart from these leaders, the Congress also hinted at forging a pre-poll alliance with Sharad Pawar's NCP.

Almost a month after the deadly shooting, however, Las Vegas and federal authorities have struggled to come up with a motive for the deadly shooting.

According to the LAPD, officials began investigating Paddock after finding evidence at a business where the 59-year-old had been squatting. Court records show Bruce Paddock has previous convictions for vandalism, criminal threats and theft, according to NBC News.

Detectives had been investigating Bruce Paddock for months before the October 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas, in which 58 people were killed and hundreds were wounded, the official tells PEOPLE.

Investigators digging into Paddock's background also learned he purchased software created to erase files from a hard drive, but without the hard drive to examine it is impossible to know if he ever used the software, one source said.
