Preliminary Report Released of Las Vegas Shooting

Newly released documents reveal gunman Stephen Paddock's search history prior to the horrific mass shooting at a Las Vegas music festival a year ago.

The press briefing was an effort to provide answers in what has been a baffling few months, as investigators have attempted to answer some of the questions posed by one of the largest mass shootings the USA has ever seen.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo released a report on the attack and said he did not expect charges to be filed against Danley. The shooter's doctor suspected he might have suffered from bipolar disorder and Paddock had told friends he always felt ill, in pain and worn out, according to the Associated Press.

According to the police report, Danley recalled Paddock behaving strangely during a stay at the Mandalay Bay in early September 2017. He was fearful of medication and often refused to take it, the doctor told investigators.

They were still not able to answer the biggest question -- why he did it -- but they said the Federal Bureau of Investigation's behavioral analysis unit was studying this and might offer more clues in a final report likely to be released at the end of 2018. Danley, his girlfriend, told investigators that during their visit she "observed Paddock constantly looking out the windows of the room that overlooked the venue". He was dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head when police broke his door down after his shooting spree, and despite the investigation, investigators have established no motive for the crime.

Danley also described how Paddock's demeanor changed over the course of the previous year as he became "distant" and "germaphobic", the report said. "Paddock would move from window to window looking at the site from different angles".

Between the two rooms Paddock had in Mandalay Bay, 14 styles of AR-15's with bump stocks attached, most with 100-round magazines. Police also recovered several hundred child pornography photographs on Paddock's laptop, the report said.

The report doesn't include a clear motive, but Lombardo said the shooter had lost a lot of his wealth in the days leading up to the shooting.
