Two months ago, the gunman behind Sunday's horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas, booked a room at a Chicago hotel that overlooked the venue for Lollapalooza. The shooter killed 58 people and the attack left almost 500 concertgoers wounded.

The FBI will continue to question Paddock's girlfriend Marilou Danley throughout the coming days after she returned to the us from the Philippines on Tuesday. 58 killed At least 58 people are dead and 489 people injured, some critically, by the high-powered gunfire that indiscriminately targeted a crowd of country music fans Sunday night from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Lombardo, however, did say that Paddock had planned extensively for the shooting - those plans included keeping a vehicle at the hotel filled with explosive material and 1,600 rounds of ammunition, Lombardo said.

McMahill said investigators were satisfied that no one else was in the room with Paddock, who checked into the Mandalay Bay hotel three days before the massacre.

"McMahill acknowledged that Islamic State had repeatedly claimed responsibility for the attack, but said investigators had uncovered "no nexus" between that Mideast-based militant group and Paddock.
