Police still looking for 'clear motive' in Las Vegas terrorist attack

Las Vegas gunman had booked a hotel near Lollapalooza

A Koondoola woman says she doesn't think Marilou Danley is involved in boyfriend Stephen Paddock's Las Vegas killing spree.

The official said a note containing a series of numbers was found on a nightstand in Paddock's room at the Mandalay Bay hotel after the shooting.

The New York Times273 Based on the definition that a mass shooting involves four or more people shot, the shooting in Las Vegas is the 273rd of the year.

As a mother and grandmother "my heart breaks for all who have lost loved ones", she said.

Days before that, Lombardo said Paddock rented a room overlooking another Las Vegas music festival, Life is handsome. Authorities told The Daily Beast that the 64-year-old rented out multiple condos overlooking the festival, which was headlined by Chance the Rapper, Lorde and Wiz Khalifa.

At a Friday afternoon briefing, Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said they also are not clear what the gunman planned for the explosives found in his vehicle.

Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi would not confirm the TMZ report about Paddock's plans in Chicago, but said the department is aware of the report.

A law enforcement official says Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock booked a room at Chicago's downtown Blackstone Hotel in August. The Chicago Police Department said in a statement that it was aware of the TMZ report about the Blackstone booking.

Stephen Paddock incited fear around the country after he reportedly killed more than 50 people and injured 500 at the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas earlier this week. "The Steve I knew two weeks ago is no longer the guy who did that thing", Eric Paddock said of his brother Thursday.

Meanwhile, the girlfriend of Paddock says she had no advance knowledge of what he was planning.

When asked why he thought Paddock stopped shooting at concertgoers, McMahill said Tuesday he believed Paddock's attention had been diverted as he fired at the security guard.

But the evidence that suggests that story can not be revealed to the public yet according to Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo. Through an attorney, she described Paddock as a "kind, caring, quiet man".

"You gotta make the assumption he had to have help at some point, and we want to ensure that's the answer".

The police believe Paddock acted alone.
