Las Vegas shooter left calculations on bullet trajectories

Las Vegas shooter left calculations on bullet trajectories

Of course, that in turn leaves a 16-minute window in which Paddock was left undisturbed while hundreds were injured and dozens died.

Investigators are still trying to determine why Paddock committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Officer David Newton of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, one of the first people to enter the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino hotel room on October 1, spotted the note.

Profilers and behavioral scientists this week were brought in to examine witness interviews and investigative summaries to better understand what drove the Mesquite, Nevada, man to execute and injure so many in such a calculated and detached fashion.

Kimura had gone to the country music festival with a group of friends.

Paddock, 64, fired indiscriminately from his upper-level room at the Mandalay Bay hotel casino at people attending a country music festival below. But she later feared it was a way to break up with her.

Before release, the items had to be cleaned of blood and other substances, as well as categorized, Flood said. "The concert venue was still pretty dark".

Because so few people knew Paddock well, investigators will have a harder time probing his background for clues, Southers said.

What could have driven Paddock remained central to the investigators who have chased leads around the globe.

A law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Saturday that the numbers found on a note located on a nightstand included the distance between the high-rise hotel room that Paddock was using as a perch and the concert below.

Police radio calls to the team told them to watch out for booby traps, as they came across a room service cart with wires on it going underneath the door of the gunman's room.

Paddock was so unremarkable, said Anthony Curtis, a former professional gambler and current publisher of gambling industry website the Las Vegas Advisor, that his name rang no bells on the day after the massacre.

"He did his homework", said officer Newton.

Eric Paddock, who lives in Orlando, Florida, said he was met by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and other law enforcement officers as he got off his plane about 10:15 McCarran International Airport.

Paddock spent the days before the shooting bringing bags of guns into the hotel and setting up his sniper's perch for the shooting. We were trippin' over guns. "But if anybody's got a gun and we find them continually, we eject them from the hotel".

Paddock said in the lawsuit that his fall at the Cosmopolitian resulted in a lingering hamstring injury, but according to CNN, an arbitrator ruled in the hotel's favor. "And we would have, on behalf of the guests, of course, investigated for safety, and it would have been a provocative situation".

"This is critical for us", Rouse said.

"It's troublesome this individual was able to move this amount of gear into a hotel room unassisted", Lombardo said. They said that a "significant amount" of the explosive was in its "finished product", while they also found ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder, which, when combined make the finished product of Tannerite.

Lombardo said that the revised timeline is based on new information that emerged over the course of the ongoing investigation.

Paddock and Danley were well known to his employees, Wynn said.

"We want to figure out the why to this, and we'd like to know the motive", Lombardo said. "At least from what people who observed him tell me, he was someone in the middle but at the high end".

"There's all kinds of things that surprise us in each one of these events".
