  • Who was Stephen Paddock? Girlfriend describes gunman as 'kind,' 'quiet man'

Lombardo says his department is working on helping people who attended Sunday night's concert get personal items back that were left at the scene.

The fuel tanks were in the line of sight during Mr Paddock's attack on concert-goers, but it is not known if he was specifically targeting the containers.

Paddock is accused of opening fire from a room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel Casino onto a country music festival, killing 58 people and injuring 527 people.

The tanks sit on property owned by McCarran International Airport.

Lombardo said investigators had discovered several pounds of an explosive called tannerite in the Mesquite home, as well as ammonia nitrate, a type of fertilizer, in the gunman's vehicle.

One week earlier, he had rented an apartment overlooking another open-air music festival in downtown Las Vegas. He says a security officer engaged Paddock and the SWAT team responded.

"I can tell you I'm very troubled by it", he said.

The girlfriend of the Las Vegas gunman said today she had no idea of the massacre he was plotting when he sent her on a trip overseas to see her family.




The 23-year-old said he didn't give Paddock another thought until he was identified as the gunman who killed 59 people and wounded more than 500 on Sunday. She said that Paddock told her the $100,000 he wired before the attack was for the purchase of a home for herself and her family.

Marilou Danley arrived at Los Angeles International Airport at around 7:00 p.m. local time Tuesday evening, where she was promptly met by Federal Bureau of Investigation officials.

She added: "I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring quite man I loved him and hoped for a quiet future together with him".

Workers at Stephen Paddock's local Starbucks immediately remembered the tall man with a big beer belly and bags under his eyes who used to come in with his girlfriend, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Suarez said the Federal Bureau of Investigation considered Danley a "person of interest", but not necessarily a suspect.

"The sheriff said that there were several firearms found in the room", he said.

ABC News reports that a total of 42 weapons were found between the hotel room and Paddock's Mesquite and Reno properties, two being modified from semi-automatic to fully automatic.
