Vegas gunman studied other large concerts

People run from the Route 91 Harvest country music festival after apparent gun fire was heard

The Las Vegas gunman opened fire on a security guard six minutes before he rained down bullets on a crowd and killed 58 people, officials said, in a change to the timeline of the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history.

U.S. media reports now say the suspect may have considered other festivals, including Chicago's Lollapalooza, a massive August festival attended by hundreds of thousands of people.

"As you might imagine, Mr Campos was not only injured when he was sacked upon as he [checked on] the door alarm down the hall. he was also extremely shaken up about what had happened to him", Lombardo said.

The shooter in last weekend's attack in Las Vegas had his eyes on two other major USA cities, officials told NBC News on Thursday.

Lombardo said at a news conference that there's no evidence Stephen Craig Paddock was motivated by ideology and there's no evidence there was another shooter.

"Stephen Paddock is a man who spent decades acquiring weapons and ammo and living a secret life, much of which will never be fully understood", Lombardo told reporters.

Charles "Sid" Heal, a retired Los Angeles County sheriff's commander and tactical expert, said the new timeline "changes the whole perspective of the shooting".

Wynn said Paddock didn't run up debts or have a gambling problem, and he had "the most vanilla profile one could possibly imagine". In past mass killings or terrorist attacks, killers left notes, social media postings and information on a computer, or even phoned police.

With the hall silent, they - and Campos, who was injured but wanted to help - were free to evacuate the rest of the rooms leading up to Paddock, he said.

Trump expected to decertify Iran nuclear deal
The Republican president faces an October 15 deadline for certifying that Iran is complying with the deal. Trump has fiercely criticized it as a one-sided deal that gives Iran all the advantages.

Paddock was deposed on October 29, 2013, as part of a civil lawsuit against the Cosmopolitan hotel in Las Vegas, where he slipped and fell on a walkway two years prior, according to CNN.

Officials urged the public to come forward if they know anything that might help them figure out what made Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and injuring almost 500 more Sunday night before turning the gun on himself.

Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, continues to cooperate with police, McMahill and her lawyer, Matthew Lombard, said Saturday. "And then you have the flashing lights", Newton said.

"While some of it has helped to create a better profile into the madness of this suspect, we do not, still, have a clear motive or reason why", said McMahill. Paddock's preparations included requesting an upper-floor room overlooking the festival, stockpiling 23 guns, a dozen of them modified to fire continuously like an automatic weapon, and setting up cameras inside and outside his room to watch for approaching officers.

What has become very clear to investigators is that Paddock meticulously planned the attack. "I didn't think there was a problem with him", Michel said. He was quick to say that MGM Grand Resorts, which owns the Mandalay Bay, is also vigilant about safety. Paddock sent Danley on a trip to her native Philippines before the attack, and she was unaware of his plans and devastated when she learned of the carnage while overseas, she said in a statement.

"So many guns", Newton said in the television interview.

Paddock described himself as "biggest video poker player in the world" and said that in 2006, at the height of his play, he averaged 14 hours of poker a day.

"I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was gonna be for the crowd", officer Dave Newtown explained.

When asked if he had an accomplice, Mr Lombardo said he had the "assumption that he had to have some help at some point". By the time officers entered the room, Paddock was dead from a self-inflicted gun shot wound, CNN reported.
