Las Vegas shooter acted strangely before shooting

Las Vegas shooter acted strangely before shooting

On Oct. 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock opened fire on a country music festival from a hotel room in Las Vegas, killing 58 and injuring hundreds.

Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo said that no charges are expected to be filed against Stephen Padock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley. They also discovered "numerous photos of child pornography", Lombardo said.

Whether Paddock secured hotel rooms, rental cars or concert tickets in connection with a possible Grant Park Music Festival attack is not part of the Las Vegas police report.

The report also includes an image a notepad, which investigators say was a "handwritten note with distance/bullet drop calculations". "According to the report, Paddock's physician described him as "'odd" in behavior with "little emotion shown".

The press briefing was an effort to provide answers in what has been a baffling few months, as investigators have attempted to answer some of the questions posed by one of the largest mass shootings the USA has ever seen.

His doctor thought he may have had bipolar disorder but told police that Paddock refused to discuss the possibility, the report said.

Sheriff Lombardo said Paddock had also searched online for tactics used by police and Swat teams.

He can also feature for Chelsea in the Champions League as he hasn't yet played for Roma in the competition this season. Alternatively, Chelsea may look towards Porto left-back Alex Telles, who has excelled in Portugal this campaign.

Danley, who was in the Philippines during the shooting, was questioned by the FBI after returning to the U.S. Lombardo and Aaron Rouse, FBI agent in charge in Las Vegas, said in October that Danley was not a suspect. When asked about a wider Chicago plot, Las Vegas Metro police investigators said that the new report speaks for itself and that there is no further information available.

The total number hurt was 851, taking into account others who were injured in the melee, Lombardo said on Friday.

On October 1, the late gunman opened fire into a crowd of 22,000 concertgoers from a high-rise hotel suite at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

In any case, a record documented October 6 and unlocked last Friday by a government judge in Las Vegas said the Federal Bureau of Investigation considered Danley "the doubtlessly individual who helped or abetted Stephen Paddock".

There was no evidence of radicalization or ideology to support any theory that Paddock supported or followed any hate groups or any domestic or foreign terrorist organizations.

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock's body has been cremated, his brother told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
