Lights dim on Las Vegas Strip one week after massacre

Lights dim on Las Vegas Strip one week after massacre

It's an answer they may never find.

"He could have very easily been thought to have been that conventioneer, news media - anything of that sort", said Las Vegas security consultant Tommy Burns.

Investigators have interviewed the suspect's brother, Eric Paddock, and other family members, according to Lombardo.

There is still no evidence that Paddock was motivated by ideology, or that there was another shooter. That closeted existence has covered the trail for investigators. "It's because this individual purposely hid his actions leading up to this event and it is hard for us to find the answers to those actions".

Police have said that when Campos radioed what happened, it helped them track where Paddock was holed up.

Shortly after investigators revised the timeline of the October 1 mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, the Los Angeles Times reported that even before gunman Stephen Paddock began his deadly assault on the 22,000 fans from his 32nd floor room, a wounded Mandalay Bay Hotel security guard called hotel officials to warn them about a gunman.

Previously, police had said Campos was hit after the attack on the crowd. He said Monday he didn't know what prompted Paddock to end his deadly gunfire.

Authorities also said that Paddock targeted two large jet fuel tanks, stocked his auto with explosives and had personal protection gear as part of an escape plan.

"I can tell you I'm confident that he was not able to fully execute his heinous plan and it certainly had everything to do with being disrupted", McMahill said.

Finally, Sectoral Asset Management Inc increased its holdings in K2M Group Holdings by 22.9% in the second quarter. Wellington Management Group LLP increased its holdings in K2M Group Holdings by 10.4% in the first quarter.

"It's his actual normalcy that makes him a fascinating study", said David Gomez, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation profiler. Investigators are sifting through every piece of Paddock's life from birth to death, Lombardo has said.

Experts say it is extremely unusual to have so few clues more than a week after a mass shooting. By the time a SWAT team used an explosive charge to enter the room at 11:20 p.m., Paddock was dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Lombardo said the Federal Bureau of Investigation is still evaluating Paddock's mental state.

"As the maintenance man as well is arriving in the hallway, they have some communication and they are just riddled with hundreds of bullets at this particular point", McMahill said.

People left behind thousands of items, Clark County Emergency Manager John Steinbeck said.

"Sometimes there isn't an understandable explanation for why someone commits a horrific crime", Gomez said.

Why did Paddock open fire on the crowd at the outdoor music festival, an attack that seems to have been meticulously planned?

That was the same floor that Paddock, 64, had set up his cache of weapons amid his plan to fire from his hotel suite windows onto a crowd at a country music festival across the street, police said.

"He may even find some solace knowing that, 'I've left so few footprints, they're going to have a helluva time figuring out who I am.' And that, in his challenged mind, might bring him a bad level of satisfaction", he said.
