Las Vegas mourns victims of mass shooting with vigils and tributes

Before Las Vegas shooting gunman was settling into retirement

Before Las Vegas shooting gunman was settling into retirement

Ahead of the shooting, Stephen Paddock transferred more than $10,000 to a bank account in the Philippines, a law enforcement source told CBS News.

Marilou Danley had been out of the country while her boyfriend, Stephen Paddock, opened fire during a Las Vegas music festival, killing at least 59 people.

United States reports and officials said she is either in the Philippines or Japan, although neither country was able to confirm her whereabouts.

Baristas told the paper they would wince when Paddock came in with Marilou Danley, because he regularly belittled and berated her in front of customers and staff.

In total, police recovered almost 50 guns, including rifles, shotguns and pistols, from three locations, including the Mandalay Bay hotel where the shooter rained down hundreds of rounds on concertgoers attending a nearby country music festival.

Officials say that the plan is to question Danley later today.

The Islamic State initially claimed responsibility Monday for the Las Vegas shooting, releasing statements praising him as "a soldier of the Islamic State" who "converted several months ago".

The number of people injured in the massacre has been revised down from an earlier count of more than 500.

Investigators are working to establish a motive for the attack, but a law enforcement official said there was no immediate indication that the massacre was connected to global terrorism.

The 47 firearms were discovered after search warrants were executed in Paddock's hotel room at the Mandalay Bay and his homes in Mesquite and Reno, Nevada. According to friends and neighbours, she was an "outgoing person" and a "great neighbour" before becoming embroiled in the investigation of Paddock.

The police chief also said a thorough search on related data on Mr. Paddock's affairs have shown no link with local or worldwide terrorists.

Lombardo said the attack was the obvious outcome of meticulous planning.

"There were armored personnel vehicles, SWAT vehicles, ambulances, and at least a half-mile of police cars", Baggett said.

No motive has emerged yet for the deadly shooting spree by Paddock, a wealthy, 64-year-old retired accountant who liked to gamble for high stakes and owned a comfortable home at a golf course retirement community near Las Vegas.

She was travelling outside the country, and police say she had no connection with the attack, CNN reported.

The family said Marilou was a "wonderful" person and described her as kind and giving, adding that they hadn't heard from her.
