She has returned to the U.S. for questioning.

As Sunday night led to Monday morning, the attack became the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history with 59 killed and 527 wounded. He knocked out two windows to create sniper's perches he used to rain torrents of bullets on the crowd of 22,000 some 500 yards away, authorities said.

Danley was reportedly in the Philippines when her boyfriend, Stephen Paddock, allegedly fired on an outdoor concert from his room at the Mandalay Bay hotel.

Explaining why Paddock's room wasn't immediately stormed, Mr Lombardo said: "Because no firing was occurring, they could not hear additional firing, they believed it was important to evacuate [hotel rooms] in case the suspect was barricaded". Four Canadians were among the dead and at least six others were also injured.

Did killer have an accomplice?

Presumably that's whom the sheriff has in mind when he refers to a helper here.

The answer, quite simply, is racism. "We were just trying to keep people from dying". And it wasn't Paddock; she said the man was Hispanic. During a news briefing a day earlier, Snyder said Paddock had purchased shotguns, handguns and rifles in Nevada, Utah, California and Texas.

"Do you think this was all accomplished on his own?"

Massachusetts is not facing any imminent threat, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said today, in the wake of a report that the Las Vegas mass shooter had researched locations in Boston prior to his massacre Sunday night. Investigators say evidence shows Paddock meticulously planned the shooting. The room was inside The Blackstone Hotel on South Michigan Avenue.

He didn't address those grieving until the end of his visit, when he called it a "very sad day for me personally".

No other arrests have been made, but officials say they know he had a plan to survive the shooting and try to escape.

Police said the festival was not Paddock's only target.

"He was a private guy".

They said Danley is "a good person" who would've stopped Paddock had she been there.

Days after the attack, investigators remain baffled about Paddock's motives even after talking to his girlfriend.

"I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man", Danley said in the statement.

He said that communities needed to unite and rebuild a strong togetherness. They said they were surprised to learn Danley had gone to the Philippines two weeks ago. The shooter, according to Lombardo, set up several surveillance cameras outside his room to monitor the hallway.

"Like all Filipinos abroad, I was excited to go home and see family and friends", that statement said.

US President Donald Trump visited Las Vegas on Wednesday, marking the first time since taking office that he has had to confront a major mass shooting. "Anything I can do to help ease suffering and help in any way, I will do".

After meeting Geary Danley, she moved to Memphis, Tenn.

Nevada's Gaming Control Board said it will pass along records compiled on Paddock and his girlfriend to investigators.

The Australian Associated Press reported that Danley was born in the Philippines and moved to Queensland in eastern Australia in the early 1980s. "Did this person get radicalized unbeknownst to us?" He described his brother as a financially well-off enthusiast of video poker and cruises, with no history of mental health issues.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said it was too soon after the attack to discuss legislative solutions to gun violence. Paddock then booked a second room for an August 3 arrival.
