Security guard Jesus Campos distracted Stephen Paddock from Las Vegas massacre

Danley was reportedly berated by Paddock during their relationship

Danley was reportedly berated by Paddock during their relationship

'It looked straight up like out of a movie, ' said officer Newton.

The crowd was approximately 400 yards away, well within range of the expensive custom-made rifles found in his suite.

On Wednesday, FBI agents trying to understand his state of mind questioned his girlfriend, 62-year-old Marilou Danley, who was out of the country during the attack.

So far, examinations of Paddock's politics, finances, any possible radicalisation and his social behaviour - typical investigative avenues that have helped uncover the motive in past shootings - have turned up little.

Paddock bought the.308-caliber and.223-caliber tracer ammunition from a private buyer he met at a Phoenix gun show, a law enforcement official not authorized to comment on the investigation said on condition of anonymity. People are asked if they know something to say something.

Three other dealers at the D Las Vegas said they last remembered Paddock at the casino on September 26, just five days before he opened fire from his 32nd floor hotel room onto the 22,000 attendees of the country music festival.

Paddock killed 58 people at a country music festival from his 32nd floor suite at the Mandalay Bay, which is owned by MGM Resorts. The family of a California man killed in the Las Vegas shooting was the first to come forth and petition the court.

Upon later finding out Paddock was responsible for the deaths of 58 attendees and the injuries of almost 500 more at last Sunday's Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas Strip, she was surprised that a man she knew to be calm yet reclusive was responsible for the largest mass shooting in modern United States history. The hotel spokeswoman, Emmy Carragher, said in the emailed statement that the hotel "is cooperating with the authorities".

Investigators are also looking into whether Paddock planned a auto bombing after the attack.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said at a news conference Wednesday night that Paddock must have had some help along the way given his huge arsenal, the explosive materials found in his vehicle, and his meticulous plan, but they don't know who that might be.

Paddock reportedly called Mandalay Bay's security twice to complain about loud music.

The official says Saturday that the numbers found on a note on a nightstand included the distance between the high-rise hotel room that Stephen Paddock was using as a perch and the concert the victims were attending.

Two Las Vegas police officers make it to the 31st floor of the Mandalay Bay after working their way up the building.

An unnamed law enforcement source confirmed the existence of the notes to CNN. TMZ reported that Paddock told the manager that he and his wife met at Lollapalooza and the trip was for their anniversary.

McMahill said investigators are looking into Paddock's mental health and any medications he was on.

All told, authorities say they are chasing 1,000 leads and pleaded with the public yesterday to help them unlock Paddock's deadly mystery.
