Gunman's girlfriend says no advance knowledge of massacre — Las Vegas shooting

Pulse shooter Omar Mateen was killed in a shootout with police.

The girlfriend of the Las Vegas shooter said Wednesday that she had no idea he was planning an attack on the Strip and is devastated for the victims - one of whom was from Marina.

Stephen Paddock's brother, Eric, told reporters outside his Orlando home Monday that their father was not around during their childhood. The official wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. A home Paddock bought in Mesquite, Texas in 2004 was later transferred to his mother at a sales price of $159,375.

According to police, Paddock had booked into the hotel four days earlier, on 28 September, reportedly using some of Ms Danley's identity documents. A dozen of them included "bump stocks", attachments that can effectively convert semi-automatic rifles into fully automated weapons. He remained on the lam for nearly a decade, living under an assumed name in Oregon.

"Something happened in his head".

Before the news of a possible attack at her concert, Lorde had already tweeted about the shooting.

Meanwhile, the motive behind the shooting remains unclear.

Investigators believe Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock may have been struggling with mental health issues prior to Sunday's massacre. "He didn't boast about anything he had or anything".

Authorities at the time said Benjamin was a diagnosed psychopath and therefore, "extremely dangerous". It was like, 'I'm here.

She is someone who can fill in a lot of the blanks and that's why investigators will want to get her in a interview room quickly.

Beyond the weaponry, Paddock appears to have planned the rampage down to the moment police stormed his suite.

The sheriff also gave a timeline of the shooting. The hotel is located across the street from the venue, Grant Park, where 400,000 people, including Malia Obama, crammed in over four days to watch musical acts including Muse, The Killers and Arcade Fire.

Republicans, who control the White House and both chambers of Congress, have fought off Democratic calls for stricter background checks or federal limits on magazine size following past mass shootings.

"Yes", Lombardo answered succinctly, without elaborating.

More than 500 people were injured in the attacks.

A representative for Guns & Guitars, Inc. also told ABC News Paddock that was a customer and purchased had firearms legally.

Like Undersheriff Kevin McMahill on Tuesday night, Lombardo stressed that although it took more than 70 minutes between the first shot fired and SWAT breaching the room, police were not sitting on their hands.

On October 2, the official Twitter account of Lallapalooza tweeted, "Our hearts are with you Las Vegas".

It's legal to own assault weapons and large-capacity magazines for ammunition. But they were very clearly a central part of Paddock's life. A U.S. official said she flew back and landed at Los Angeles International Airport overnight, where she was met at by FBI agents, CBS2's Mola Lenghi reported.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Stephen Paddock has rented a room in the Ogden hotel near the Life is Beautiful festival.

Ms Danley, 62, who has been called a 'person of interest' by investigators, said she knew Paddock as a 'kind, caring, quiet man' and hoped they would have a future together.

Investigators also found a note containing numbers inside the hotel suite, but police say it was not a suicide note or manifesto.

"There are several questions that need to be answered similar to what you proposed but she is currently out of the country".

Danley's sisters told CNN affiliate Seven Network Australia that Paddock encouraged her to leave the United States last month. We have to be prepared. The only prescription mentioned is Valium.

Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, was questioned by the FBI on Wednesday and said in a statement she had been unaware of Paddock's plans. "She was sent away".

"She cooperated her way right into a criminal indictment", said Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos.
