Las Vegas police say gunman Stephen Paddock had an escape plan

Las Vegas police say gunman Stephen Paddock had an escape plan

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police spokesperson Todd Fasulo said that authorities recovered 42 firearms belonging to Stephen Paddock, the alleged gunman who killed 59 and injured more than 500 at a country music festival.

Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, said she did not know what he was planning.

News first reported the wire transfer, citing "multiple senior law enforcement officials", and CNN later confirmed it with another official. Authorities found several weapons in the hotel room and his property.

Authorities say the Las Vegas shooter had 1,600 rounds of ammunition and several containers of an explosive commonly used in target shooting that totaled 50 pounds in his auto.

Meanwhile, investigators are taking a harder look at the shooter's girlfriend and what she might have known about the attack at a country music festival, with the sheriff naming her a "person of interest" and saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation is bringing her back to the USA on Wednesday for questioning.

Danley was not arrested on her arrival at Las Vegas airport, but agents were expected to speak to her in an attempt to discover what led Paddock to carry out the worst mass shooting in American history.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Eric Paddock said he helped his brother move from Florida to Nevada in 2015, but that the two were not close.

NBC says that Danley traveled to the Philippines on September 25 via Hong Kong.

One sister speculated on the seemingly impromptu trip, saying Danley "didn't even know that she was going to the Philippines" until Paddock said he purchased the ticket.

Authorities said Paddock, who had no criminal record, smashed windows in his hotel room shortly after 10pm on Sunday and rained fire on a crowd of 22,000 attending a country music concert below.

He said there could be a genetic component to the slaughter: Paddock's father was a bank robber who was on the FBI's most-wanted list in the 1960s and was diagnosed a psychopath. "For the moment, we believe that it is the only aggressor", a e said the sheriff, Joe Lombardo, referring to a "lone wolf".

Danley's sisters said in an interview said she holds the key to shedding light on his behaviour. Paddock killed himself before police reached his hotel room. Overall, 527 people were injured during the mass shooting. Paddock bought 33 firearms, mostly rifles, during that period, an ATF spokesperson said. He would also be born on April 9, 1953 in the town located 120 kilometers from Las Vegas, Nevada. They said she was "in love" with Paddock and called her "a good person and a gentle soul ... a mother, grandmother, a sister, a friend".

Rabadi also said such tools are often used by sportsmen who want to modify their weapons for activities like target practice. "I thought he did an excellent job and the support that he got throughout to heal our nation and bring us back in a time of need".

President Donald Trump is scheduled to arrive in Las Vegas Wednesday to meet with officials, first responders and some victims.
