Jason Aldean Posts Emotional Statement About Las Vegas Shooting

If Modifying A Semi-Automatic Gun is So Easy, What's The Point of Banning Automatic Weapons?

If Modifying A Semi-Automatic Gun is So Easy, What's The Point of Banning Automatic Weapons?

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said investigators found an additional 18 firearms, explosives and several thousand rounds of ammunition in Paddock's home, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Marilou Danley, the reported girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, returned to the United States late Tuesday night.

"Body, body, body, then the last one - it's a body and he is shot in his stomach and his buddies are on top of him trying to revive him, and they are crying, they are panicking, people are screaming, they were behind a wall".

Stephen Paddock, the gunman who killed 58 people and injured more than 500 in Las Vegas on Sunday, set up a number of cameras in and around his hotel suite. Almost 60 people were killed and more than 500 were injured as he took aim at the festival grounds below.

Police also confirmed some of the weapons had been modified with "bump stock" devices enabling them to discharge bullets more quickly.

"We are making progress but I don't have complete answers yet", he said.

Police say Paddock's record included a traffic citation issued years ago that was handled in court.

He supported his predecessor Barack Obama's call for more gun regulation in 2012 after 20 children were killed in a shooting at Newtown, Connecticut. Trump has responded to the Las Vegas massacre by holding a moment of silence on the White House South Lawn and ordering flags lowered to half-staff.

Police found dozens of guns in the Las Vegas shooter's hotel room and home.

Cameras have now been discovered in both the room and the hallway, with police believing they may have been used to watch for people approaching him.

Another officer shouts: "I see muzzle flashes from the Mandalay Bay!" "I feel like out of respect for the victims, their families and our fans, it is the right thing to do".

A US official told the Associated Press that investigators are focusing more attention on what the girlfriend of Stephen Paddock may have known about the attack.

Eric Paddock, the brother of the suspect, told the Orlando Sentinel that he has given a statement to police. He said the family is "horrified and bewildered". He said he has launched an internal investigation as to how those photos were obtained by the public.
