Police still looking for 'clear motive' in Las Vegas terrorist attack

LAS VEGAS NV- OCTOBER 3 Las Vegas Blvd. remained closed to vehicular traffic near the scene of Sunday night's mass shooting

More than 500 people were injured when Paddock opened fire on an outdoor concert on Sunday night from his 32nd-floor suite of the Mandalay Bay hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.

"I don't think we've done enough in recognizing [Campos] and his actions, and today, I want to apologize, and clear the record that he's an absolute hero", McMahill said.

Two months ago, the gunman behind Sunday's horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas, booked a room at a Chicago hotel that overlooked the venue for Lollapalooza. Earlier this week, The Daily Beast claimed that Paddock had rented multiple condos overlooking Life Is Beautiful Festival, which took place in Vegas from September 22 to 24.

Paddock's motive remains unknown. Once there, he wired her money to purchase a house.

Other evidence from the shooting is beginning to trickle out.

The shots started at 10:08 p.m. and the gunfire stopped at 10:19 p.m., the shooting went off and on for nine to 11 minutes, CNN quoted Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill as saying.

Danley's sisters have defended her, insisting she had no idea of Paddock's intent and her brother said she has a "clean conscience".

A former executive casino host at the Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa in Reno, Nevada, where Paddock frequently gambled, says he had a "god complex" and expected quick service no matter how busy employees were.

It is believed that they are owned by Swissport, the company tasked with leading fuelling operations for Las Vegas' McCarran international airport. ABC News also reported Paddock's hotel reservation.

Speaking to the Las Vegas Review Journal, aviation consultant Mike Boyd explained that it was extremely hard to ignite jet fuel with bullets.

Just before the shooting, Paddock sent Danley to her native country to visit family.

"It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone", she said in the statement.

"I anticipate he was looking for anybody coming to take him into custody", Lombardo said of the cameras. The brother's account drastically differs from a witness who said the 64-yer-old would verbally abuse Danley in public often. He was a millionaire.
