Las Vegas Shooter Booked Rooms Overlooking Lollapalooza Festival 2 Months Ago

People run from the Route 91 Harvest country music festival after apparent gun fire was heard

At the press conference, McMahill said Metropolitan Police Department has "run down well more than a thousand leads" in the investigation, yet still hasn't determined what prompted Paddock to fire at concertgoers attending the country music festival.

While the gunfire had stopped once police were on Paddock's floor, they weren't sure what they would encounter when they found him. The sheriff added that a complete evaluation of Paddock's mental condition was not yet done.

Earlier reports indicated that Paddock left behind a suicide note.

Paddock, who officials believe had an escape planned, fatally shot himself as a SWAT team descended on his hotel room.

Investigators in Las Vegas are turning to the public in the search for clues as to what prompted 64-year-old gunman Stephen Paddock to to carry out the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

"We now know that he was dispatched to a door alarm on the 32nd floor", he said.

Four officers who were the first to storm Stephen Paddock's rented room at the Mandalay Bay hotel revealed chilling new details about the deadliest shooting in modern American history in an interview with CBS's 60 Minutes.

Previously, police said hero guard Jesus Campos had distracted Paddock from his rampage - being hit in the process - just a minute before police arrived.

While Paddock aimed at fuel tanks across from the concert as a "diversion", Lombardo said it was clear that he meant to aim at the crowd enjoying a festival on the Vegas Strip.

The dealer did not have the quantity Paddock wanted, so Paddock did not end up buying anything from him, they said.

Paddock had power tools and was attempting to drill a hole in an adjacent wall, perhaps to mount another camera or to point a rifle through, but he never completed the work, Lombardo said.

"His bravery was awesome because he remained with our officers, providing them the key pass to access the door and continued to help them clear rooms until our officers demanded he seek medical attention", Lombardo continued. "They're going through everything and photographing everything again". He said people may be available to retrieve them in about four days.

"In this world, if you lost your wallet or your purse or your phone, a lot of times there's nothing, you can't get stuff done".

People seeking their items Monday walked in quietly to the convention center hall, where an assistance center has been set up. The cops did not even know that a hotel guard was injured until they met Campos "in the hallway after exiting the elevator", Lombardo said.

Billboards are shown on Las Vegas Boulevard near the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and next to the historic "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign Friday in Las Vegas.

It comes as authorities desperately try to find answers as to why Paddock opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Festival off the Vegas strip on Sunday night, killing 58 people and injuring 489.
