Sheriff Joseph Lombardo explains the moments Stephen Paddock opened fire until the moment police stormed his hotel room. He says the Federal Bureau of Investigation is working the scene with resources form Washington, D.C. there to help.
Paddock killed himself, according to Las Vegas Police.
He said he last talked to Stephen Paddock after Hurricane Irma, he said that Stephen asked about her 90-year-old mother’s well-being and also asked about the power outage.
Danley’s two sisters, interviewed by Australia’s Seven News and preferring to remain anonymous, said Danley didn’t know anything about Paddock’s plans.
People had been evacuated from the area around Mandalay Bay into the Westgate resort, she said.
Police say a smoke alarm helped them determine Paddock’s location in the Mandalay Bay hotel.
Filipino-born Marilou Danley, 62, lived with Paddock at his home in a Mesquite retirement community where authorities searching the residence found a cache of 19 additional weapons. “But there were cameras”, Lombardo said.
Learning how Paddock obtained his weapons and how he got them and hundreds of rounds of ammunition into the hotel is one question to be answered. In total, 59 people were killed and 527 people were injured in the shooting, the Associated Press reported.
The attorney representing Danley, Matthew Lombard, read a statement on behalf of the woman on Wednesday. She said, “It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone”, At the time, Danley was in the Philippines on a trip to visit her family paid for by Paddock.
Paddock had compiled a huge arsenal of weapons and is believed to have used a device that allowed his semi-automatic weapon to fire at a faster rate.
Anyone with information in this criminal investigation should call 311 if local, or 702-828-3111 if out of state. “But that won’t be to compensate the 59 people’s lives”. A family reunification center is set up at the convention center at 3150 Paradise Road.
The brother of the suspected gunman behind Sunday’s Las Vegas mass shooting said he has been trying to wrap his head around the shooting, saying he had no idea where the guns or his brother’s actions came from.
