The country singer had been scheduled to perform three concerts in California over the next few days: Los Angeles on Friday, San Diego on Saturday and Anaheim on Sunday. They wonder if he had some sort of mental break at the time that drove him to start making plans for mass murder. In the 190s and '80s, he worked as a mail carrier and an IRS agent and held down an auditing job in the Defense Department, according to the government. I was grateful, but honestly, I was worried at first the unexpected trip home and then the money was a way of breaking up with me.
A total of 23 weapons were found in Paddock's hotel room, including a.223-caliber and a.308-caliber.
A spokeswoman for Lockheed Martin said Paddock worked for a predecessor of the company from 1985 to 1988, but offered no other details.
As Snopes has reported, a video shared on Instagram shows the same light flashing during a performance of "God Bless America" by the country music duo Big and Rich, two hours before the shooting began.
"Hey they are shooting right at us guys, everybody stay down, stay down", an officer shouted.
Police stormed the hotel room perched above the strip and found Paddock dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
He also placed a camera in the peephole of his room, Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill told reporters Tuesday evening.
"My biggest fear is that it will inspire copycat style attacks", he said. The No. 2 official in the FBI said Wednesday he was surprised investigators had not uncovered more.
Other security experts say thwarting a lone gunman intent on carrying out mass murder is nearly impossible without major invasions of privacy and constitutional rights.
President Donald Trump is calling the man who killed 59 people and wounded hundreds others at a music festival in Las Vegas a "very, very sick individual".
Trump said the shooting was "such a tragedy" and "unnecessary".
Meanwhile the owner of a Utah gun store said Paddock visited the store several times this year and bought a shotgun after passing a federal gun background check.
Paddock received a doctor's prescription for 50 tablets of 10 milligrams each, the paper said. "The first minute the police are aware of shots being fired is 10:08, and it stops at 10:19". Authorities also now say Paddock, 64, must have had some help at some point; they just don't know who, or why.
It comes as Paddock's own brother Eric said he had no idea of the amount of weapons his sibling had.
Samuels said he is still in shock following the shooting, as several of his friends from high school were hurt by the shooting or were at or near the concert. "We just didn't see it coming".
In the meantime, Las Vegas police announced Thursday that they had found a Hyundai Tuscon they had been searching for as part of the probe while executing a search warrant at the home in Reno that Paddock shared with his girlfriend, Marilou Danley.
