Whether the weapons bought from the gun shops, New Frontier Armory in North Las Vegas and Guns and Guitars in Mesquite, were used in the Las Vegas attack remains unclear. Special mounts created to fit the underside of a rifle and sit atop camera tripods allow the gunman to fire more accurately while standing. At least 45 patients at two hospitals remained in critical condition.
For those people and their families, the shooting is far from over. She reportedly left the United States on September 25 and has been located in the Philippines, where she was born. More surgeries are planned. He was arrested by federal agents and returned to prison for a year.
LVMPD Assistant Sheriff Todd R. Fasulo said that 23 guns were found in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino room, from where Paddock fired into a crowd.
Inside the hotel room, he said investigators also found a "bump stock", a legal device that speeds up the fire of a gun and allows it to fire.
However, there is still a lot they don't know about what motivated Paddock, described by officials as a "lone wolf", to launch the most deadly mass shooting in modern US history.
Public records show Paddock leading an itinerant existence across the American West and South-eastern United States, including stints as an apartment manager.
"They're shooting right at us guys, everybody stay down", one officer said amid the sound of sirens, gunfire and screams.
The network also said that Paddock had reported 16 gambling wins of US$10,000 in the two weeks before the shooting. After he settled into his room, a "Do Not Disturb" sign was placed on his door for at least three days, meaning maids never entered the room.
The motive behind the retired man's actions is still being investigated, but police say he acted alone, despite ISIS claiming responsibility.
She was traveling in Asia on Sunday, when the shootings occurred, officials said.
Jonathan Smith, of Buena Park, told the Washington Post that he was shot in the neck while trying to help as many as 30 people escape the gunfire.
"You could hear it ringing off the top of the rafters of the stage. So unnecessary. Who can believe what happened to Las Vegas?". But, he said, "we'll be back".
The witness described them as Hispanic and looking like "everyday people".
