Authorities Search Home of Vegas Shooter, Question Brother for Second Time

Unarmed Hotel Security Guard Praised For Rushing Las Vegas Gunman's Suite

When Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire from a sniper's nest perched 32 floors above the Las Vegas Strip, slaughtering at least 58 people, Floyd Conrade was "starting to wind down for the night" in the hotel room directly underneath the shooter. Paddock killed 58 people and injured more than 500 before killing himself.

"We have multiple leads all across the United States and all across the world", Rouse said. Did Paddock intend to die in his hotel suite - shooting himself before a SWAT team breached the door on Sunday night - or had he hoped to escape?

Speaking on Monday, Lombardo said Campos was shot at 9:59 p.m., six minutes before the gunman began raining bullets on the country music festival.

His body was escorted to Palm Downtown Mortuary and Cemetery, and a memorial was held for the slain police officer at Police Memorial Park in the northwest of the city - one of several vigils in Las Vegas on Thursday evening.

Lombardo said at a news conference that there's no evidence Stephen Craig Paddock was motivated by ideology and there's no evidence there was another shooter.

A federal official said authorities are looking into the possibility Paddock planned additional attacks, including a vehicle bombing.

The authorities now say that the security guard went to the 32nd floor of the hotel to investigate an alarm that went off in another room on the same floor, signaling that a door had been left open.

Charles "Sid" Heal, a retired Los Angeles County sheriff's commander and tactical expert, said the new timeline "changes the whole perspective of the shooting".

Previously the sheriff had said the guard's arrival in the corridor may have caused Paddock to stop firing.

"We do not believe there is one particular event in the suspect's life for us to key on", he said.

Further explaining that Paddock must have taken days to figure out all the details and plan the attack in such a meticulous way, Sgt. Joshua Bitkso also told 60 minutes that the 64-year-old gunman had made extensive efforts to study even the hotel's surveillance systems.

Political uncertainty moves International Monetary Fund to cut SA's growth forecast
It forecast a static gross domestic product (GDP) growth of 1.7% this year, slowing further to 1.5% in 2018. In terms of 2018, the projected growth rate now stands at 3.7 percent.

Las Vegas' Democratic Congresswoman Dina Titus was the only speaker who touched on the subject of gun violence and politics, saying, "Let us also pray for those who have power that they will have the wisdom, the courage, and the resolve to find ways to end the gun violence that plagues our nation".

People who knew Paddock described him as anti-social, someone who went out of his way to avoid other human beings, but his girlfriend said she saw no indication that he was capable of such horror.

The previous weekend, Paddock had rented a high-rise condo in a building that overlooked the Life is handsome alternative music festival featuring Chance the Rapper, Muse, Lorde and Blink-182, said Lombardo, who offered no other details about what led Paddock there. "So he had had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there", he said. He requested an upper-floor room overlooking the country music festival and set up cameras inside and outside his room to watch for approaching officers.

In the deposition, Paddock said he had a concealed weapons license in Texas, but, other than that, there was no discussion of guns.

"I'm trying to get them to understand Steve's mindset", Eric Paddock said.

"What I can not confirm to you today, and what we continue to investigate is, whether anybody else may have known about this incident before he carried it out", McMahill said.

After paying for his girlfriend's trip to visit family in the Philippines, Paddock appears to have been in downtown Las Vegas from September 14 to 28, according to records reviewed by representatives of the El Cortez Hotel and Casino, who spoke to the Los Angeles Times on condition of anonymity.

"I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was going to be for the crowd", Newton said in a clip from the the episode, which will be televised on Sunday night.

That drill work was not finished, Lombardo said.

Sometimes, he paid the woman roughly $7,500 an encounter to play out rape fantasies, where he tied her up and instructed her to "scream" for help, she said.

There was no discussion about guns in the deposition, CNN reported, other than Paddock's comment that he had a concealed weapon license in Texas.
