Girlfriend of Las Vegas gunman says she had no warning of attack

Multiple People Shot on Las Vegas Strip Full Auto Gunfire: Witness Describes Las Vegas Shooting

Federal agents - who are assisting the Las Vegas police in the investigation - have essentially two critical questions for Danley: Did she have any idea what motivated him, and did she have any knowledge of what was about to take place and not alert authorities?

Danley said Paddock had bought her an airline ticket to visit her family and wired her money to purchase property there, leading her to worry he might be planning to break up with her.

Her brother in the Philippines, Mr Reynaldo Bustos, said she told him she had "a clean conscience", reported ABC's Good Morning America.

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something disgusting like this was going to happen", Danley, 62, said in a statement released by her lawyer Matt Lombard.

Lombardo also told reporters evidence collected from the shooter's room suggests he meant to survive and escape, though Lombardo did not specify what that evidence was.

With Paddock dead, the sisters said Ms Danley might be the only one who can "put the puzzles together".

Speaking to USA broadcaster KHBS, her former husband's daughters called her a "good and gentle person".

"It was preplanned, extensively, and I'm pretty sure that he evaluated everything that he did in his actions, which is troublesome", Lombardo said Tuesday.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump was set to arrive in Las Vegas to meet with public officials, first responders and some of the 527 people injured in the attack. "We're looking. I can tell you, it's a very sick man". "We know that your sorrow feels endless".

Top Republicans Open Door for Bump Stock Ban
Because of this modification, some elected officials believe bump stocks don't serve the public any good. Bump stocks are now legal in the US , though some in the gun industry questioned their intended use.

Lombardo said it was possible that the shooter, who spent the eight hours before the killings gambling, was "working out all of this on his own" before reaffirming his suspicion that he did not act alone.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Wednesday that Paddock had an escape plan and did not leave a suicide note.

Officials said cameras placed on a food cart in the hallway and on the peephole of the hotel room door were not recording and a baby monitor camera was in the room, police said.

Property records show Paddock sold several low-end apartment buildings and commercial buildings in California in the 2000s before purchasing an apartment building in Texas and homes in retirement communities in Florida and Nevada.

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Special Agent in Charge Jill Schneider said Paddock had a combination of rifles, shotguns and pistols in the three locations. These bump stocks have become a flash point since the shooting, and on Thursday the National Rifle Association (NRA)- in its first statement since the massacre - echoed others in calling for more regulations on the devices.

The official stressed the information was preliminary and investigators haven't uncovered any solid evidence yet.

She was sent away.

"It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone", she said. There she met Paddock, a high-limit player.

Mr Trump largely stuck to a talking point repeated by dozens upon dozens of Republican officials: "Well, we're not going to talk about that today".
