Las Vegas shooter planned to survive, escape in moments after massacre

Las Vegas shooter planned to survive, escape in moments after massacreā€¯

Police believe Paddock acted alone when he sprayed gunfire on the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest festival.

"We're going to pay our respects", he added.

The Nevada gun store that sold Stephen Paddock a gun on the same day he checked into the Mandalay Bay hotel has gone into lockdown in the aftermath of Sunday night's shooting.

This undated portrait released on October 02, 2017 by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police shows Marilou Danley the alleged companion or roommate of the gunman that killed at least 20 people and wounded more than 100 others during a country music concert as she is being sought for questioning.

Richard Vasquez, a former chief of firearms technology for the ATF, said "without a doubt it was automatic fire", but it's hard to determine any more specifics about the weapons used because the videos are shot from so far away and there are lots of gunshot echoes.

There remained no evidence as yet "to indicate terrorism" in the shooting spree, said Aaron Rouse, FBI special agent in charge of the Las Vegas field office.

The presence of other hotel guests in the rooms surrounding Paddock's meant that police couldn't return fire from the ground, he explained.

Jill Snyder, the special agent in charge at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, tells "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday that Paddock purchased 33 firearms, mostly rifles, between October 2016 and September 28, three days before he opened fire on a concert crowd.

Details started to emerge Tuesday about some of the victims - a kindergarten teacher from California who had married her childhood sweetheart, a Tennessee nurse, a high-school secretary from New Mexico. Citing the "tremendous number of stories of great heroism", Trump complimented police and emergency personnel.

The authorities could not confirm to whom the transactions were intended. Ure loaded the bleeding strangers into a passing vehicle and rode with them to a hospital.

But he later revised his statement, telling AFP that information was from the media.

Authorities in the Philippines had communicated with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the US Department of Homeland Security regarding her travel, the spokeswoman said. Tonight's not your night. "That I can tell you".

Lesser does not recall bump stocks being discussed when he helped change CT gun laws into some of the toughest nationwide following the school shooting in Sandy Hook. When officers entered the hotel room, they found Paddock dead. "She sends cookies to my mom". "He sent his mother cookies", he said.

Rumpeler said he's happy that the president is visiting the city because it takes someone of his caliber to address what has happened.

"This is just a quiet, sleepy little community".

"What I saw today is just an incredible tribute to professionalism", Trump said.

"We've never even thought about locking our doors. There's no religious affiliation that we know of".

"On behalf of the grateful nation, we thank each and everyone of you in law enforcement", he said after meeting with first responders in Las Vegas.
