Witness Describes'Pandemonium as People Sought Cover During Las Vegas Shooting

New details are emerging, investigators say, that suggest Paddock's mental state was deteriorating before the shooting: significant weight loss, an increasingly slovenly physical appearance and obsession with his girlfriend's ex-husband. They said they want people to know that social media has spun this out of control and jumped to conclusions that their father was involved.

Danley was in the Philippines when Paddock rained a hail of gunfire Sunday on an outdoor concert in Vegas, killing at least 59 and injuring more than 500. Records showed Danley left the Philippines on October 3. She added to reporters that "US authorities were in contact with us about Marilou Danley".

Assistant sheriff Todd Fasulo said Paddock had 23 guns - some with scopes - in his hotel room.

She said that Mr Paddock had sent her on a trip the trip overseas, and then wired her $100,000 - which concerned her because she thought that it might mean he was breaking up with her.

In the wake of the Vegas mass shooting, Gov. Jay Inslee on Tuesday called on the Legislature in its next session to ban "bump-stocks" and other devices that turn semi-automatic rifles into "lethal fully-automatic machine guns". While the motive for Paddock's actions remains unknown, Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack Monday morning.

Danley had assured her family she has a "clean conscience" following Sunday night's rampage, her brother told ABC News in the Philippines. - Authorities praised the bravery of a hotel security guard who was first to approach the room on the 32nd floor where the gunman was perched.

Sheriff Lombardo said he did not know what, if anything, Paddock was planning with the explosives. What provoked Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old real estate investor, to commit mass murder?

The report also said the Federal Bureau of Investigation tracked Chromedome Paddock to Las Vegas where he tried to run over agents with his auto before he was arrested. He said authorities believe Paddock used Danley's identification during his stay at the hotel. He reiterated police had no other suspects in the shooting itself.

When Paddock checked into the Mandalay Bay on September 28, he specifically requested an upper-floor room with a view of the Route 91 Harvest music festival, according to a person who has seen hotel records turned over to investigators and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Jose Baggett, 31, a Las Vegas resident, said he and a friend were in the lobby of the Luxor hotel-casino - directly north of the festival - when people began running.
