She is believed to be the roommate of the man identified as the shooter, Stephen Paddock.

It is the shooting the deadliest in modern history of the United States. Stephen Paddock killed himself in his 32nd floor hotel room Sunday, authorities said, after opening fire on a country music festival, killing at least 59 and injuring hundreds more.

According to his obit, Paddock most likely spent his final 10 years living in Texas, where, according to the woman he lived with, he helped her run a machine shop and received a VA pension.

Las Vegas Metro Police have set up a family reunion center at Metro Plaza, 400 S. Martin Luther King Blvd.

The circumstances of this shooting remain unclear and motives of the shooter are unknown at this stage.

US officials discounted a claim of responsibility by ISIS and said they believed Paddock acted alone. In a press release, Daech claims that the killer had converted to Islam several months ago.

"We are coordinating with Las Vegas police authorities and with leaders of the Filipino Community to check on our kababayans (countrymen) there", said Cruz.

A little earlier, and the sheriff of Las Vegas Joe Lombardo, however, had explained that there was not, to his knowledge, the link between the shooter and the AR.

The jihadist organization has assured that the assailant responded to his call to attack the member countries of the global coalition that fights against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

The mother of Las Vegas gunman, Stephen Paddock, once described him as a "bad boy" during a conversation with a neighbour, it has been revealed.

As for what motivated the actions of his brother, Eric Paddock said he and his family are "still just completely befuddled".

Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley was due to arrive in the Philippines on October 1. According to ABC, Stephen Paddock was an accountant, and had a patent of aviation and a hunting permit issued by the State of Alaska.

"I don't know how he could stoop to this low point, hurting someone else", Bruce said, adding that his brother was a "never-in-a-hurry" type of person. "We've spoken to him and we do not believe that it is involved".

Bethel, who lives in Haltom City, says he tried desperately to contact Vegas police and hotel security after the initial shots were fired.

When the final verdict in Paddock's legal saga came in, and Circuit Judge George Woodrich made a decision to let him off with a $100,000 fine and no jail time. Stephen Paddock was then 8 years old.

Patrick Paddock was arrested on July 28, 1960, in Las Vegas, where he had fled after the bank robbery in Phoenix.

"The agency reported he is an avid bridge player and smokes both cigars and cigarettes". And it felt like it took them too long to get over there... to take him out. Against the payment of a sum of 623 000 dollars, he avoided prison in the 80s for accusations of scams. He died in 1998.
