Preliminary Report Released of Las Vegas Shooting

Announcing the release of a preliminary investigative report into the shooting, the sheriff of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said he did not believe charges would be filed against Paddock's girlfriend, who was initially a focus of the investigation.

Danley, through her attorney, said on October 4 that she told the Federal Bureau of Investigation she had no idea Paddock was "planning violence against anyone". The FBI has "an ongoing case against an individual of federal interest", Lombardo said, declining to elaborate. "Paddock would move from window to window looking at the site from different angles", according to the report.

He had previously told friends and relatives that he always felt ill, in pain and worn out.

Authorities say Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock conducted extensive online searches for police and SWAT tactics and searched for other potential targets before he carried out the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

It also said Paddock's primary care doctor described him as odd with little emotion, and said he may have been bipolar, but Paddock would not discuss it and refused antidepressants. On one of the computers, investigators found hundreds of photos of child pornography.

Las Vegas Shooting Investigation Has Person Of Interest — But Who?

The 64-year-old retired accountant was a high-stakes gambler and real estate investor.

The KTLA news channel speculated that Paddock may have used the height of the hotel to calculate the trajectory, since the only piece of paper in the suite contained calculations the gunman made to determine how far his bullets would drop based on the height of his room, as well as the distance between himself and the venue.

The evidence was gathered from an HP laptop recovered in Paddock's room after the shooting, according to LVMPD. His searches included "summer concerts 2017", "biggest open-air concert venues in U.S.", "how crowded does Santa Monica Beach get", "How tall is Mandalay Bay", "life is lovely expected attendance" and "do police use explosives", among other phrases. Among his searches was "do police use explosives", the report said.

The Vegas massacre, which took place at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on October 1, is the deadliest mass shooting in United States history.

Last September - at a country-music festival on the Las Vegas Strip - Paddock searched for information on "swat weapons", "SWAT Las Vegas" and "ballistic", the report revealed. "Unless you have specific evidence, it seems a bit irresponsible to make that allegation or make that assertion", she said.
