Authorities had been trying to track down Paddock's girlfriend since the attack happened and found out she had been visiting family in the Philippines. Sheriff Lombardo said some of the hospitals responsible for the counts realized they counted a few patients twice, or counted as concert shooting victims patients who came in with unrelated injuries.

Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], Oct 4 (ANI): The United States President, Donald Trump on Tuesday called the gunman "demented", who went on to shooting spree, killing 59 people and injuring more than 500 others.

Paddock, a 64-year-old retired accountant, quietly stockpiled an arsenal of high-powered weapons while pursuing a passion for high-stakes gambling at Nevada casinos, where his game of choice was video poker, a relatively solitary pursuit with no dealer and no humans to play against.

Paddock was found dead by officers in a hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino. All but three of the 59 victims have been identified, Lombardo said.

Those seeking to know the motive of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock have had little more to chase than hints and shadows.

Rabadi also said such tools are often used by sportsmen who want to modify their weapons for activities like target practice. "We stayed with them in Memphis in 2000", she said.

"We are continuing the investigation into that female", he said.

She was reportedly met by federal agents at the airport after traveling back from the Philippines.

Danley, who returned late Tuesday from a family visit to the Philippines, is regarded by investigators as a "person of interest".

He disagreed with the European Commission's statement on Monday that events in Catalonia were an internal issue for Spain. Officials claim that 90% of Catalans who voted backed leaving Spain , but turnout for the referendum barely exceeded 40%.

News first reported the wire transfer, citing "multiple senior law enforcement officials", and CNN later confirmed it with another official. He would also be born on April 9, 1953 in the town located 120 kilometers from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Eric Paddock, the brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, was distraught and expressed disbelief.

Snyder said Paddock had rigged 12 semi-automatic rifles with devices that allowed the guns to fire like an automatic weapon.

The Philippines' National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) said the FBI, its United States counterpart, had sought help in finding Danley.

Outside of that woman sighted with Paddock, FBI agents spoke with Marilou Danley - the girlfriend that the shooter sent to Hong Kong and then her native Philippines prior to the attacks.

"He was so rude to her in front of us", Esperanza Mendoza, the store's supervisor, told the newspaper.

"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.

"She's a good person, a gentle soul, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a friend", the sister said, adding that Danley was having trouble coping with the tragedy because "she's a very weak person".
