Woman who lived with Las Vegas shooter described as 'person of interest'

Woman who lived with Las Vegas shooter described as 'person of interest'

Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines, a law enforcement source said.

Danley lived with Paddock at a home in Mesquite, Nevada.

However, he says it is likely the gunfire would have stopped around the same time even if the security officer hadn't approached Paddock's door, because police officers were on the scene about a minute later. The verbal attacks would happen when Danley would ask her boyfriend for his casino card to make their purchase.

She was in the Philippines when Paddock opened fire with high-power rifles from a 32nd floor hotel room Sunday night at a sea of concertgoers below on the Las Vegas strip. "It just blew me away", said Rod Sweningson. "Anything I can do to help ease suffering and help in any way, I will do".

He described his brother as a multimillionaire and said they had business dealings and owned property together.

By Monday afternoon, 59 victims were dead and 527 injured in the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

Why did he continue firing with an arsenal of weapons for nine to 11 minutes? Investigators named Danley as a "person of interest" in the investigation.

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told CNBC on Wednesday that the lack of a clear motive was a "surprise" in this mass shooting.

Police believe Paddock acted alone when he sprayed gunfire on the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest festival.

"We will look at every one of those lanes, pull every possible thread", he said.

In an interview with CNN affiliate Seven Network Australia, Danley's sisters said that Danley did not know about the shooting and was "sent away" before the attack.

A Philippines immigration spokeswoman said Danley arrived in the Philippines on September 25 on a flight from Hong Kong. Their identities were concealed - their faces were obscured and their names withheld. So why is Geary Danley's family receiving death threats?

Lombardo said a check of federal and state databases showed the gunman was not on law enforcement authorities' radar before the bloodbath.

Details started to emerge Tuesday about some of the victims - a kindergarten teacher from California who had married her childhood sweetheart, a Tennessee nurse, a high-school secretary from New Mexico.

Stephen Paddock, who had worked previously as an accountant, was "not an avid gun guy at all", though he had a couple of handguns and a long gun, he said. He merely described sniper as "very sick" and "very crazy" man. "The wires are screwed up".

"There's absolutely no way I could conceive that my brother would shoot a bunch of people that he didn't know", Eric Paddock said outside his home Monday, shaking his head as he fumbled for words.

Netflix Is Doing Another Price Hike, Unfortunately
Although in somewhat of a classy move, Netflix was raising the price gradually, something they called "un-grandfathering". Netflix's 4K streaming plan, which provides higher-quality content, will cost $14 per month, a $2 increase.

Paddock didn't have a criminal record but was "known to local authorities" in Las Vegas, according to Fox News. McMahill said the cameras included one in the peephole and two in the hallway. He also announced he would be flying to Las Vegas on Wednesday to meet with officials, first-responders, victims and victims' families.

The evidence laid out by investigators so far shows Paddock meticulously planned the shooting. Only 275 days have gone by in 2017 since October 2.

At 10:15 p.m., Paddock fired his last shots, police said. He also allegedly beat his former wife, and his widow ― who is facing charges related to the nightclub attack ― says he physically abused her too. They found two gun stocks that allow the shooter to replicate fully automatic fire, and are investigating whether weapons used in the massacre had those modifications, according to a USA official briefed by law enforcement who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is still unfolding.

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". Some of his neighbors rarely saw him, but they knew he was a gambler. Paddock bought 33 guns, mostly rifles, during that period, an ATF spokesperson said. The gunman killed himself before police breached his hotel room door.

David Hickey, president of the union representing the hotel's officers, identified the wounded guard on Wednesday as Jesus Campos. He was expected to have a round removed from his leg at a later date, Hickey said.

The UK's Daily Mail newspaper published several photos taken in Paddock's room after the shooting. But he could have also used widely available trigger cranks on a semiautomatic weapon that would have allowed him to fire almost 700 rounds per minute. "He must have brought plenty more ammunition, already loaded into magazines".

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility, without offering evidence, but Aaron Rouse, the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent in charge in Las Vegas, said investigators saw no connection to global terrorism.

Now, Starbucks employees who served cappuccinos to Paddock at a Mesquite, Nevada, casino have shared another character trait they observed: He treated his girlfriend like crap.
