Chicago police: Las Vegas gunman booked hotel rooms overlooking Lollapalooza

Clark County Under sheriff, Kevin McMahill, said investigators remain largely in the dark after running down more than 1,000 leads seeking clues to what drove a wealthy retiree with a penchant for gambling to carry out the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

Las Vegas Police found 50 pounds of explosives and 1,600 rounds of ammunition in the vehicle Paddock parked at the Mandalay Bay Hotel where he mounted his assault on thousands of concertgoers.

Just two months after Lollapalooza, Paddock checked into Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of Clark County said detectives are in contact with Marilou Danley, who was travelling in the Philippines at the time of the massacre and remains there.

"He sent her away so that he can plan what he is planning without interruptions", the sister said.

On May 12, 2016, El Bahnasawy sent the agent an image of Times Square stating, "We seriously need a vehicle bomb at Times Square". According to prosecutors, all three have been arrested and El Bahnasawy has already pleaded guilty following his May 2016 arrest.


The shooting is the deadliest in modern US history.

Paddock reportedly reserved one room at the Blackstone Hotel for Aug. 1 and another for Aug. 3, both with an Aug. 6 check out date. "What scares me is we're lucky we haven't had this, this type of thing in Chicago", O'Neill said.

The shooter's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, is cooperating with authorities and has spoken to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Many gamblers falsely believe such machines are more likely to pay off. Weinreich called Danley a "super sweet lady" and says he later learned she had taken off with Paddock.

Police found Stephen Paddock to be a man with no criminal record, but he had about 40 rifles in his possession in several locations.

Mr Le Fevre said Paddock had a room full of guns in his home at Mesquite, Nevada, and was a stringent defender of the second amendment to the United States constitution.

When back-up arrived, Lombardo said Campos stayed with the officers to help clear the rooms in the area.

He requested an upper-floor room overlooking the festival and stockpiled 23 guns, a dozen of which were modified with bump stocks to fire continuously like an automatic weapon.
