'Another person of interest' in Vegas gun massacre

'Another person of interest' in Vegas gun massacre

Stephen Paddock opened fire October 1 from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay casino-hotel, killing 58 people and wounding hundreds.

Prior to committing the deadliest mass shooting in American history, Las Vegas sniper Stephen Paddock researched several Chicago music festivals according to a newly-released police report.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have said they believe Stephen Paddock acted alone to carry out the October 1 shooting that also injured hundreds before killing himself.

Lombardo said that "there is only one person responsible and that was Stephen Paddock", adding that investigators do not anticipate charges against his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, who was out of the country at the time of the shooting. They also discovered "numerous photos of child pornography", Lombardo said.

The FBI agent who prepared the October 7 affidavit noted that Danley was cooperating with investigators and that the investigation "to date has not produced any conclusive evidence that Danley aided Paddock, had foreknowledge of his plans, or has been deceptive with law enforcement".

Lombardo would not elaborate on who the person of federal interest might be.

The sheriff said the preliminary report will be available to the media and the public follow the press conference.

Eric Paddock of Florida says he wants to help investigators get into his brother's mindset.

"Paddock would move from window to window looking at the site from different angles", the report said.

Chelsea Target Roma Full-Back Emerson Palmieri as Cheaper Alternative to Alex Sandro
The Blues had been linked with Juventus full-back Alex Sandro but a deal was proving hard to get over the line. Instead, the club have turned to Roma's Palmieri, who is said to be available for £ 20m this month.

It was the deadliest mass shooting in recent United States history.

Officials in Las Vegas say the cremated remains of the gunman who carried out the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history have been turned over to his brother.

Still, Lombardo said that the preliminary report will not shed light on Paddock's motive.

"Without naming names, there are potential charges against other people, because of the ongoing investigation?"

After the press conference, CNN mentioned to Lombardo that he had previously said Paddock committed the attack for status and loss of money.

Inside a district courtroom on January 16, a lawyer for multiple media outlets argued why information pertaining to 1 October is crucial to helping Las Vegas heal, but the lawyer for Metro Police said they can't release any information because there are still suspects being investigated. They said they trust Paddock carefully arranged and disguised his intend to discharge ambush style weapons from the 32nd story of the Mandalay Bay inn into a horde of 22,000 individuals going to the Route 91 Harvest Festival music underneath.

On Friday, Lombardo announced Danley will not be facing any charges.

He killed 58 people and injured hundreds.

The report also says Paddock also searched for information about several other hotels in Las Vegas.
