More details are being revealed from the horrific Las Vegas shooting that took 59 lives and injured hundreds. A new video shows the aftermath in Stephen Paddock’s room in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
Here’s the video from inside the shooter’s hotel room:
The short video is being highlighted in local news reports. It shows the police tape around the entrance where a SWAT team blew open the doors to gain entry. Inside, they discovered the killer dead by his own hand.
Through the doors a rifle is seen on a stand on the floor. Police said that they discovered 23 weapons in the room, with two tripods at the hotel windows. Hundreds of rounds of ammunition and many suitcases were found — they are thought to have been used to bring the guns into the room.
What is the latest on the story?
Police are now looking at Marilou Danley, the shooter’s girlfriend, as a person of interest, and the FBI is seeking to have the 62-year-old brought back from the Philippines to the U.S. Danley is a casino hostess, and an Australian citizen born in the Philippines.
It has also been discovered that Paddock had sent $100,000 to someone in the Philippines a week before the shooting.
What about the shooter’s motivation?
Law enforcement officials have not yet said if they have made any inroads into uncovering his motivation for the shooting, and pundits have noted that he does not fit the standard profile of a mass shooter. His brother has said he had no religious or political affiliation that would have led to his radicalization in any way.
