All But 3 Dead in Las Vegas Mass Shooting Identified

08 October 2017

The gunman in the mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip on October 2, 2017, has been identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Monday morning. To her stay overseas during mass murder, she said that paddock had given her a plane ticket to visit her family.

A US law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters authorities believe 64-year-old Stephen Paddock had at least two such weapons when he fired from his 32nd-floor hotel room, killing at least 59 people and injuring more than 500.

It was not clear when or how Paddock obtained the weapons.

He did not comment on the content of the pictures, but confirmed Paddock had used a "bump stock" on at least one of the weapons, which in effect turned it into an automatic rifle that can shoot hundreds of rounds a minute.

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something awful like this was going to happen", she said in a statement read by her lawyer.

The Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, a hotel and casino in Reno, said Danley was a former employee.

She flew from Manila to Hong Kong on September 22 and returned to Manila on September 25 before flying to Los Angeles Tuesday. She was expected to be questioned upon her arrival in Los Angeles, the New York Times reported .

"I was trying to talk to him and he wasn't responding", said Heather, an orthopedic surgeon.

"We're hunting down and tracing every single clue that we can get on his background", said Sheriff Joe Lombardo.

More than two days after the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history, the question of why someone with no known record of violence or crime would open fire on a country music festival was unanswered.

SWAT teams found the retired accountant dead in his room on the 32nd floor of the hotel. Danley shared Paddock's home at a retirement community in Mesquite, Nevada, northeast of Las Vegas, before traveling to the Philippines in mid-September. She said experts who analyzed it said you can hear 90 gunshots in just 10 seconds. His noticeably distraught brother who lives in Orlando said there was no indication Paddock was planning or was capable of that sort of attack.

Lombardo said police believe Paddock "killed himself prior to our entry".

Before her name was known around the world, Danley had made a life on the Gold Coast. There has been communication between authorities in the Philippines, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and US Department of Homeland Security, Mangrobang said.

Public records offered no hint of financial distress or criminal history, though multiple people who knew him said he was a big gambler.
