Two days after the Las Vegas mass shooting, some people showed their doubts over the reaction and investigation by the authorities, including why the special weapons and tactics team of LVMPD did not use snipers to kill the shooter and many asked how Paddock could carry so many guns into a famous casino in ten big suitcases. Fifty-eight people were killed and more than 500 were wounded in the attack.

The police initially said that Danley is a "companion" of the shooter but wasn't tagged as a suspect.

Tracing Paddock's footsteps in Mesquite, the Nevada desert retirement community about 90 miles (145 km) northeast of Las Vegas, provides scant clues about why, according to authorities, he carried out the worst mass shooting in recent USA history.

Police said 23 guns were found in Paddock's suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel.

Neighbors described Paddock as friendly, but he wasn't close to them.

Ms Danley had been out of the country for weeks before the shooting, but had been named as "a person of interest".

One sister speculated on the seemingly impromptu trip, saying Danley "didn't even know that she was going to the Philippines" until Paddock said he purchased the ticket.

Speaking at a press conference, he said law enforcement authorities are in communication with Danley and anticipate "some information here from her shortly".
