Las Vegas gunman shot security guard before mass shooting

Stephen Paddock before the shooting

Security guard Jesus Campos approached the door behind which Stephen Paddock was barricaded with 23 firearms. Now, police say they do not know why Paddock stopped shooting minutes before they arrived at his 32nd-floor suite. The county sheriff also said Paddock had an escape plan.

In addition, Lombardo said Paddock's motives were still unclear and there was no evidence that he had been motivated by any ideology. He also drilled holes and bolted a metal bar to try to prevent the opening of an emergency exit stairwell door near the door of his room.

"This individual purposely hid his actions leading up to this event", Lombardo said, "and it is hard for us to find the answers to those actions".

"A comprehensive picture is being drawn as to the suspect's mental state, and now, we do not believe that there is one particular event in the suspect's life for us to key on", Lombardo said.

Lombardo acknowledged that "we do not know why at this point" that gunfire ended - but he cast the revision as one of a number of "minute changes" common to an evolving investigation.

Paddock said that everything in the room at the Cosmopolitan was "comped", or free.

"There was not a note in the suspect's room".

A week later, investigators still haven't found a motive for Paddock's rampage.

Adding that police have found evidence showing Paddock moving around Las Vegas more than 200 times in the days before the shooting.

A Las Vegas prostitute described Paddock, 64, as a man who enjoyed sex fantasies and bragged that he was "born bad" because of his criminal father, Benjamin, who was a bank robber on the FBI's Most Wanted list.

Paddock shot and wounded a security guard who came to his floor at the Mandalay Bay hotel to investigate an open door down near Paddock's suite, Lombardo said, providing new details on what occurred immediately before the mass shooting.

Paddock's younger brother, Eric, told the newspaper that he would like to take control of the assets and handle disbursement to victims.

Country star Jason Aldean, who was performing at the festival when the shooting began, appeared last night on Saturday Night Live.

People left behind thousands of items, Clark County Emergency Manager John Steinbeck said. So I would be comfortable in saying, which I believe, dependent on the splash he made during the shooting would have enabled the first responders to be directing their attentions to other locations which would enable Mr. Paddock to just leave the hotel. Gatherers chanted "All the power to the people" and "Spread the love".

They are now being returned to people at a Family Assistance Center at the Las Vegas Convention Center, starting with a few sections of the concert scene and expanding to others at a time to be announced later. Volunteers filled out intake forms with detailed descriptions of their lost items, and Federal Bureau of Investigation victims assistance agents later asked additional questions.

People received their belongings in re-sealable plastic bags.
