Las Vegas Massacre: Gunman Paddock's cryptic note decoded

Share

A MUSIC fan who told her family she was the "safest person to be around" survived her second mass shooting when she was caught up in the Las Vegas massacre. On Friday, the police recognized that she still had no way credible on its motivations.

The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the massacre, but McMahill said authorities had not uncovered "no known nexus" between the jihadist group and Paddock.

Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said: "We still do not have a clear motive or reason why".

Unlike so many other perpetrators of deadly mass shootings before him, Paddock left behind no suicide note, no manifesto, no recordings and no messages on social media pointing to his intent, according to police.

"I get it - we all want answers", McMahill said. The FBI has not found at this stage no sign of radicalization.

Police eventually blew open the door and found the killer dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The security guard, identified as Jesus Campos by the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America, was shot in the leg after Paddock fired at him through a door, police said.

Danley was out of the country during the shooting, and she said this was arranged by Paddock, saying that he bought her a plane ticket to the Philippines to visit relatives. "It was sometimes lying on the bed, moaning and shouting "Oh my God", would it have indicated to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to CBS News". He has lost a lot of weight during this period and was not taking more care of his appearance. It seems, at least at present, as though Paddock planned and executed the very bad attack for days, or weeks in advance, all while maintaining the outward appearance of a normal guy. "He descended into madness", says an investigator.

Chargers at Giants: Who has the edge?
An 0-5 start is a real possibility, as they've made a hard trip cross-country to play the also winless New York Giants on Sunday. Manning had given the Giants a 22-17 lead early in the fourth quarter with a 48-yard TD pass to a wide-open Beckham.

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something disgusting like this was going to happen", she said in a statement read by her lawyer. McMahill said, "We have looked at everything, literally".

The dates the reservations were made, July 23 and 27, show that Paddock spent quite some time planning his attacks but it is unknown why he chose not to go through with this particular attack.

Paddock began firing at concertgoers from his 32nd-floor suite beginning 10:05 p.m. Sunday, according to police.

There's "no one to say who's he mad at, what his motive is", Southers said.

Danley, through her attorney, said that she didn't know Paddock planned to carry out a mass shooting.

Wynn said that under a counterterrorism plan put in place in 2015, "We profile or inspect or examine everybody that enters the building".

Tannerite was previously found in a auto Paddock parked at the Mandalay Bay and in another of his homes, in Mesquite, Nev.

But police suspect Paddock may have had assistance at some point before the killings, based on the large number of guns, ammunition and explosives that were found in the hotel suite, his home, his auto and a second home searched in Reno.
