** Picture from NBC News: **

A week after the deadliest mass shooting in United States history, federal agents on Saturday started hauling away the piles of backpacks, purses, baby strollers and lawn chairs left behind when frantic concert-goers scrambled to escape bullets from the gunman who was shooting from his high-rise hotel suite.

Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) agents fanned out across the crime scene near the Las Vegas Strip throughout the week stacking the belongings left from last Sunday’s deadly shooting into more than a dozen large piles.

Saturday morning, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) agents were seen loading the items onto dollies and into the back of a white truck.

Authorities have said they plan to return the belongings to people in the next week.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill said investigators had “looked at literally everything” and still do not have a clear motive.

Investigators have chased 1,000 leads and examined Paddock’s politics, finances, any possible radicalization and his social behavior — typical investigative avenues that have helped uncover the motive in past shootings.

Authorities have even put up billboards asking anyone with information to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) at: 1 (800) CALL-FBI.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill said investigators had reviewed voluminous video from the casino and don’t think Paddock had an accomplice in the deadly shooting, but they want to know if anyone knew about his plot beforehand.

A federal official tells NBC News that in their effort to find any hint of his motive, investigators were looking into whether he was with a prostitute days before the shooting, scrutinizing cruises he took and trying to make sense of a cryptic note with numbers jotted on it found in his hotel room.

The United States official briefed by federal law enforcement officers wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

The official said investigators were interviewing other call girls for information and looking into at least a dozen cruises Paddock took in the last few years, including one to the Middle East.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill noted that in past mass killings or terrorist attacks, killers left notes, social media postings and information on a computer, or even phoned police, and what his officers have found is that Paddock planned his attack meticulously.

Authorities say Paddock requested an upper-floor room overlooking the festival, stockpiled 23 guns, a dozen of them modified to fire continuously like an automatic weapon, and set up cameras inside and outside his room to watch for approaching officers.

Authorities also say Paddock reportedly bought 1,000 rounds of the .308-caliber and .223-caliber tracer ammunition from a private buyer he met at a Phoenix gun show.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill said investigators are looking into Paddock’s mental health and any medications he was on.

According to a federal official who wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity, his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, told Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) agents on Wednesday that she had not seen indications he could become violent. Marilou Danley said she was unaware of any plans Paddock had when he sent her overseas to see family in her native Philippines.

Marilou Danley was out of the country at the time of the deadly shooting and has been labeled a “person of interest,” though she’s not in police custody and is cooperating with authorities.

People continue to gather in front of crosses with each of the 58 victims’ names who lives were taken away in the deadly shooting during the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

Candle light vigils and memorials were also in the last few days in the victims’ communities.

On Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence visited Las Vegas, Nevada offering prayers and encouragement for a community reeling days after a gunman went on a killing rampage at an outdoor country music festival along the Las Vegas Strip.

Vice President Mike Pence visit come days after President Trump arrived here to meet with victims and first responders.

Vice President Mike Pence, with several local elected officials, including Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, spoke from a lectern inside City Hall, where he emphasized that the country stands united with the Las Vegas, Nevada community.

“No evil — no act of violence — will ever diminish the strength and goodness of the American people. We are united as one nation, as one people, with one voice — united in our grief, united in our support for those who have suffered, and united in our resolve to end such evil in our time,” said Vice President Mike Pence adding, “When one part of America cries out for help we always come together to answer the call.… Today we are all Vegas strong.”

The Vice President Mike Pence’s remarks came at the conclusion of a unity prayer walk among local elected officials and residents in memory of the 58 people killed and nearly 500 injured on during the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday, October 1st, 2017.

The gunman, Stephen Paddock, 64, fired hundreds of rounds at the crowd from his 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay hotel room.

 

** As of 10:00pm PT of Friday, October 6th, 2017: **

** Picture from NBC News: **

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill said on Friday that law enforcement don’t believe anyone entered the room at Mandalay Bay prior to the shooting carried out by Stephen Paddock last Sunday night.

The shooting that killed 58 people was the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history.

Earlier, senior law enforcement sources said investigators were puzzled by a charger that did not appear to match any of Paddock’s cellphones.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department were able to match all of the cell phone chargers found in the room with multiple cell phones that Paddock had with him.

“He was the only shooter; I’m very confident of that. I’m also confident that there were no other people in the room leading up to this event,” said Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill.

A motive in the deadly shooting during the Route 91 Harvest Festival remains elusive.

“This agency wants to give answers. We owe it to the victims and the victims’ families. It’s really a frustrating piece of this investigation,” said Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill.

During the press conference on Friday, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill said they did not think there was a second shooter, but then said it was unclear whether or not Paddock had help.

“We’re very confident that there was not another shooter in that room. What I cannot 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,” said Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill said they also found approximately 50 pounds of tannerite and ammonium nitrate — materials that can be used to make explosive devices — in the gunman’s car, but it did not appear that Paddock had assembled the material into an improvised explosive device.

NBC News is reporting that senior law enforcement officials said Paddock had researched possible attack locations in Boston and Chicago, including the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago in August.

NBC News is also reporting that law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation said they had learned Paddock approached an ammunition dealer wanting to buy a large quantity of tracer rounds at a gun show in Phoenix last month.

The dealer (Not Named) did not have the quantity Paddock wanted, so Paddock did not end up buying anything from him.

The dealer told law enforcement that Paddock was neatly dressed and polite, and did not say anything that would raise a red flag.

Paddock gave the dealer the impression that he wanted the tracer rounds for recreational use with friends.

Law enforcement learned of the encounter because Paddock had an ammunition box bearing the dealer’s name.

Law enforcement are also examining Paddock’s finances. IRS records show that Paddock was a successful gambler, earning at least $5 million in 2015. Some of that could be from other investments, but most of it was from gambling, officials say.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill said investigators have not found any connection between Paddock and ISIS, the terror group that claimed responsibility for the attack, a claim it made without offering any proof and the terror group’s claim has been widely discounted.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill also said Investigators have not determined a motive and have been looking at “everything” including Paddock’s personal life, finances, or any political affiliations in searching for a motive behind the attack.

“We have been down each and every single one of these paths, trying to determine ‘why,'” said Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahill, adding that the investigation will continue and would focus on facts and not rumors or assumptions.

“In the past, terror attacks or mass murder incidents — motive was made very clear. Very clear in most of those cases by a note that was left, by a social media post, by a telephone call that was made, by investigators mining computer data. Today, in our investigation, we don’t have any of that uncovered. I wish we did,” said Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Kevin McMahil.

The public is learning more about the evil shooter, 64 year old Stephen Paddock, in the deadly shooting during the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegsa, Nevada.

Stephen Paddock had a recent live-in girlfriend and 2 ex-wives, his father was a notorious fugitive bank robber, and had a penchant for guns, high-limit video poker and real estate deals.

His life is the subject of a sprawling investigation into what drove him to show up at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino with at least 10 suitcases filled with guns and open fire from his 32nd floor suite on a country music festival.

Law enforcement and family members could not explain what would motivate a one-time accountant with no known criminal record to inflict so much carnage.

The gunman killed himself in the hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino before authorities arrived and before shooting at authorities before entering the hotel room.

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Stephen Paddock had 23 guns at the hotel, including semiautomatic rifles, and 19 at his home along with thousands of rounds of ammunition.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said some of the rifles had scopes and that authorities found 2 gun stocks that could have let him modify weapons to make them fully automatic.

Authorities also searched a 2 bedroom home Paddock owned in a retirement community in Reno, Nevada, 500 miles from Mesquite, Nevada.

While Stephen Paddock appeared to have no criminal history, his father was a notorious bank robber.

Benjamin Hoskins Paddock tried to run down an FBI agent with his car in Las Vegas in 1960 and wound up on the agency’s most wanted list after escaping from a federal prison in Texas in 1968, when Stephen Paddock was a teen.

The oldest of 4 children, Stephen Paddock was 7 years old when his father was arrested for the robberies.

Property records show in 2015, Stephen Paddock bought his one-story, three-bedroom home in a newly built Mesquite subdivision for $369,000.

Past court filings and recorded deeds in California and Texas suggest he co-owned rental property.

According to Mesquite Police Departmen Lt. Brian Parrish, Stephen Paddock previously lived in Mesquite, Texas — from 2004 to 2012, and owned at least three separate rental properties.

Lt. Brian Parrish said there was no indication the police department had any contact with him over that time.

Stephen Paddock has been divorced at least twice, including marriages that ended in 1980 and 1990.
