Shooter's girlfriend returns to US, reports say — Las Vegas shooting

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock's father was a bank robber

The girlfriend of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock has a "clean conscience" as police investigate the worst mass shooting in modern US history.

Residents speculated that Paddock may have played golf and that he was to be found occasionally having lunch at the local senior citizens' club, although staff at the club itself said they did not have his name on any visitors list and didn't recognise his face, a mainstay on television news in the last 24 hours.

"The people he loved, he took care of and as he was descending into hell, he wanted to try and take care of her", he said.

"I have faith in God and I will continue to pray for everyone who has been harmed or hurt".

"She was sent away", one of the women said. "You're going to be ok.' Because I truly believed it".

He previously lived in another Mesquite - the Dallas suburb of Mesquite, Texas - from 2004 to 2012, according to Mesquite, Texas, police Lt. Brian Parrish.

"I had no idea that a lunatic lived three doors down", Sweningson said, shaking his head.

Neighbours have said the couple mostly kept to themselves and were frequently away for weeks at a time on gambling trips. A scouting mission? Or a planned attack not carried out?

Paddock, a 64-year-old high-stakes gambler and real estate investor from Mesquite, Nevada, killed himself as police closed in on his 32nd-floor room at the Mandalay Bay hotel casino.

Footage reportedly showed the 62-year-old woman being taken in a wheelchair at LAX while flanked by uniformed police officers. And while neighbors described Paddock as friendly, he wasn't close to them.

According to federal aviation records, Paddock was issued a private pilot's license in November 2003. It's hard to notice what's not there, so it's especially annoying that the journalist's method of illustrating mass murderers is to assemble pictures of all the mass shooters, but then only show the white guys.

"They're learning a lot more", Trump said of the investigation.

Ms Danley's brother, Reynaldo Bustos, said he contacted her not long after the shooting.

Danley is an Australian citizen who moved to the United States 20 years ago to work on the casino strip, the Australian government confirmed Tuesday.

Authorities believe Paddock was using Danley's identification at the hotel.

Investigators at the hotel from which Paddock launched his assault found no fewer than 23 guns, including a Kalashnikov and AR-15 assault rifles, and a vast stockpile of military grade.223 calibre ammunition.

"He just kind of blended into the crowd, he was completely under the radar", Nerrins said. However, officials haven't been able to see precisely when the wire happened or who was the recipient. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, the ranking Democrat on the Homeland Security Committee.

"Our souls are stricken with grief for every American who lost a husband or a wife, a mother or a father, a son or a daughter", he said. "We stand together to help you carry your pain". "Please respect my privacy and my family's privacy".
