New timeline in Las Vegas shooting carnage

October 10, 2017

The Las Vegas gunman opened fire on a security guard six minutes before his massacre, officials say.

Investigators are talking to the brother of a gunman who killed 58 people in Las Vegas last week before he shot himself to death as they seek to determine what motivated the mass shooting.

The shooter, Stephen Paddock, 64, was seen on numerous occasions in Las Vegas without any person accompanying him and he gambled the night before the shooting, Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said at a news conference on Monday.

"This individual purposely hid his actions leading up to this event, and it is difficult for us to find the answers," said Lombardo, who agreed he was frustrated with the speed of the investigation.

Paddock sprayed an outdoor concert with bursts of gunfire from high above in a Las Vegas hotel window on October 1, killing 58 and wounding hundreds more, before shooting himself.
