Automatic weapons may have been used in Las Vegas massacre

Automatic weapons may have been used in Las Vegas massacre

Police are not aware whether the devices were transmitting - the FBI is investigating their use - but the Clark County sheriff told reporters he thinks Paddock might have used them to watch for people approaching his room.

He did not give any further details or say if Paddock filmed the carnage he carried out.

A gunman accused of carrying out the worst mass shooting in modern United States history had an arsenal of at least 42 weapons, USA police have said, as they scour for clues to determine the motive behind the attack in Las Vegas. Among his weapons were an AR-15, an AK-47, four Daniel Defense DDM4 rifles, three FN-15s and more.

Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, was questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday and said in a statement she had been unaware of Paddock's plans.

"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 frightful like this was going to happen", she said in a statement read by her lawyer.

The friend of shooter of Las Vegas, Marilou Danley, had no idea of perpetrator's plans according to his own information.

The official, who has been briefed regularly on the probe but spoke on condition of anonymity, said investigators were working on the assumption that the money was intended as a form of life insurance payment to Danley.

A preliminary review of police records don't indicate that authorities had any contact with him but police are still investigating, Parrish said.

"I think it's important to understand that this investigation is going to be long and contracted before we get to the bottom of everything associated with it", Lombardo said.

"It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone".

SWAT teams found the retired accountant dead in his room on the 32nd floor of the hotel.

Hundreds of concert-goers scrambled for cover, flattening themselves against the ground, rushing for the exits or helping others to escape as Paddock sprayed the site from his high vantage point.

Additionally, her sisters said Paddock wired Danley $127,000, without elaborating. She was visiting her native Philippines. She said experts who analyzed it said you can hear 90 gunshots in just 10 seconds.

The deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history took place Sunday night in Las Vegas in part thanks to a legal device that allows any gun owner to circumvent gun laws.

Mr Lombardo said the scale of the preparations for the attack - including the weapons, ammunition and electronics he had stockpiled - raised questions about Paddock potentially having had an accomplice. "59 lives. The horror", she wrote.
