Las Vegas police bodycam reveals chaos & terror of Mandalay shooting

Paddock's apparent girlfriend Marilou Danley, 62, traveled to her native Philippines roughly two weeks prior to Sunday's event and returned this week to the U.S.to cooperate with investigators. "I know that she don't know anything as well, like us", one sister said through tears. Danley had left Manila unescorted but would be met by Federal Bureau of Investigation on her arrival in the United States, the official said.

Police have released chilling bodycam footage from Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas, capturing the sounds of screams and rapid gunfire as authorities responded to the deadliest shooting in USA history.

Police responded to the incident and found Paddock dead in his hotel room from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot. They said that Danley, who is Australian, had arrived in the Philippines more than a week before the shooting.

"Lombardo also said that Paddock rented a room via Airbnb the weekend before which overlooked the" Life is Beautiful" music festival in Las Vegas.

Initially, investigators had dubbed the shooter a "lone wolf" killer, saying he acted alone.

NRA Says Bump Stocks Should Be 'Subject To Additional Regulations'
USA TODAY is reporting Stephen Paddock might have used a mechanical device to fire his guns as if they were automatic. The device basically replaces the gun's shoulder rest, with a " support step" that covers the trigger opening.

Authorities have released police body camera video that showed the chaos of the Las Vegas mass shooting as officers tried to figure out the location of the gunman and shuttle people to safety. His family said they don't know Stephen Paddock and had no knowledge of he and Marilou's relationship. "It would be hard for me to believe that" he had no help, Lombardo said.

"We had no idea if there were people in the venue with guns or if they were from the hotel", he said.

He had an arsenal of weapons, including bump-fire stocks found in the hotel, which is a legal device that enables a shooter to fire bullets rapidly, similar to an automatic rifle.

The man who killed more than 50 people and injured over 500 in a Las Vegas shooting Sunday may have been targeting a music festival featuring Chance The Rapper.

"We anticipate some information from her shortly", Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said earlier Tuesday.
