Las Vegas gunman wired $100000 to girlfriend's home country

59 people were killed and at least 4527 injured when a crazed gunman opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas.

Also on Wednesday, Lombardo said the shooter had rented an apartment in Las Vegas two weeks ago through Airbnb and believe he chose that location because of its proximity to another music festival in Las Vegas last weekend.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) and the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) provided on Wednesday night the latest update on investigation into the Las Vegas Strip mass shooting Sunday. Police said they recovered items and video footage from the hotel while Paddock was there and plan to review it.

Paddock killed himself after mowing down the concert-goers.

It was reported Thursday that the attack at the Mandalay Bay might not have been the first time Paddock booked a hotel overlooking a musical event.

Paddock took his own life as police closed in.

Stephen Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, says she knew something was going on, but just thought he was about to break up with her.

Days before the shooting, Paddock transferred $100,000 to the Philippines, a USA official told the Associated Press. Ms. Danley learned about the trip when Paddock told her he had bought a ticket.

"There are reports her ID was used for booking the hotel or some such detail", Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said.

Danley said she was grateful but anxious that the unexpected trip home and the money "was a way of breaking up with me".

"Australia will support the USA authorities in their investigation in whatever way we can, but we have not had contact with Marilou Danley directly".

Geary was married to Marilou, 62, for more than two decades before separating in April of 2013 and then divorcing in February of 2014.

The motives of the multimillionaire retired accountant, who was not known to be suffering from mental illness, are unknown. Paddock was living in Mesquite, Nevada and according to police, he had several firearms, rounds of ammunition and explosives in his property.

"She was even shocked than us because she is more closer to him than us", she said.

Security guards were met by bullets as they approached the door to the suite. He also told reporters that Stephen was helping his mother.
