Predictably, Las Vegas Shooter Had a History of Violence to Animals

Not all hunters go on to gun down humans, but stalking defenseless victims and violently killing them for "sport" is so egregious and the suffering inflicted is so extreme that we have to wonder whether exposing emotionally disturbed people-as Paddock obviously was-to such cruelty has the potential to destroy their capacity for empathy.

Speaking to reporters at a press briefing Tuesday evening, Undersheriff Kevin McMahill of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department narrated the three-minute video which is a compilation of several scenes from that night.

Police also confirmed that the photos showing the interior of Paddock's suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel taken after the attack were authentic. He was extremely well armed.

US police say she has been living in Nevada with Paddock, who has been described as having loved and "doted on" Ms Danley.

The president and first lady Melania Trump had started their trip meeting with Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, who is leading the police investigation.

The fact that Paddock doesn't fit the profile of an ISIS recruit does not immediately rule out the possibility of influence, Smith said. "Did this person get radicalized unbeknownst to us?" "I guess we knew that without an update".

The Trumps visited University Medical Center to meet with survivors of the shooting, doctors and nurses. Please respect my privacy and my family's privacy. Later, she was fired. She said he wired her some money, which she believed to be a way of breaking up with her. "It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone".

"Shoes, baby strollers, chairs, sunglasses, purses".

In the past year, there have been at least two high-profile cases of false claims of responsibility by ISIS. All but three of the dead had been identified by Tuesday afternoon, Lombardo said.

Trump held a moment of silence on the White House South Lawn after the Las Vegas attack and ordered flags lowered to half-staff.

Clemente said a "psychological autopsy" may be necessary to try to establish the motive.

"But that's not for now", he said.

President Donald Trump is reckoning with the aftermath of a deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas when he visits the city on Wednesday.

There is Republican-backed legislation to make suppressors for long guns easier to obtain - still requiring governmental approval and fees.

Paddock had a business degree from Cal State Northridge.

Last month, he struck a "deal" to protect "dreamers" from deportation with "Chuck and Nancy", as he likes to call the Democratic congressional leaders - Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

"He was a gambler, that was his job", Eric Paddock, one of his two brothers, told reporters on Monday in Orlando, Florida.

One sister tearfully said: 'I know that she don't know anything'.

Paddock killed himself as police closed in.

"No affiliation, no religion, no politics". During that trip, he highlighted Puerto Rico's relatively low death toll compared with "a real catastrophe like Katrina", when as many as 1,800 people died in 2005 as levees protecting New Orleans broke.

Immigration documents show Danley had been abroad for weeks at the time of the attack.
