Investigators search for motive in Las Vegas strip massacre

Mass Shooting at Las Vegas Concert Leaves at Least 50 Dead

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters that it is not certain yet whether the shooter had planned to attack that festival or if he was doing "pre-surveillance" for the attack that killed 59 people this past Sunday night.

"There's very little difference between a souped-up semi automatic and a fully automatic", said Mike McLively, a policy expert with Americans for Responsible Solutions.

The investigation into the Las Vegas mass murderer who killed at least 58 people and wounded almost 500 in a hail of gunfire is still searching for a motive in the massacre.

Mr Lombardo said the scale of the preparations for the attack - including the weapons, ammunition and electronics he had stockpiled - raised questions about Paddock potentially having had an accomplice. In total, across three locations, 47 firearms had been recovered, officials said.

A law enforcement official says the girlfriend of Stephen Paddock has arrived in the USA and was met by federal agents at Los Angeles airport.

"It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone". She wanted to get low; he said, no, we'll get trampled.

The Las Vegas gunman's girlfriend returned to the United States overnight after a weeklong trip overseas and was met by investigators seeking to question her for clues to what drove Stephen Paddock to slaughter 59 people from his high-rise hotel suite.

The official, who has been briefed regularly on the probe but spoke on condition of anonymity, said investigators were working on the assumption that the money was intended as a form of life insurance payment to Danley.

President Trump continued his criticisms against National Football League players and executives who took a knee or protested before this week's games .

After Sunday attack, authorities in the United States, the Philippines and Australia joined efforts to search for Danley, hoping she might shed some light on the motive behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

We've experienced many mass shootings in recent years, with each episode seemingly more deadly than before.

They also found 23 guns in Paddock's room at the hotel.

Lombardo said police believe Paddock "killed himself prior to our entry".

The Vegas massacre is the bloodiest attack in the United States since another lone wolf stormed a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida a year ago killing 49.

Ms Danley had been in the Philippines, but a Philippines immigration bureau spokeswoman told reporters the woman had flown out of the country and had now arrived in Los Angeles. He had no criminal record, no known history of mental illness and no outward signs of social disaffection, political discontent or extremist ideology, police said.

The Mandalay Bay attack comes just weeks after Spencer Hight carried out a mass shooting during a gathering at his estranged wife's home in Plano, Texas.
