During Sunday night's mass shooting in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, gunman Stephen Paddock may have had assistance, according to TODAY.

Police are working on two theories in relation to Paddock's wild mass murder - that he had an accomplice and a plan to escape from the Mandalay Bay hotel where he gunned down concertgoers below. Law enforcement officials have stated that 58 people were killed with hundreds more injured.

Paddock also used a number of cameras in his hotel room, none of which were recording. "You've got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point", Lombardo said.

"The Hyundai that was sought in connection with the LV (Las Vegas) shooting was located during a search warrant executed at (Stephen) Paddock's house in Reno", Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) tweeted on its official page.

Paddock booked one room for August 1, 2017, two days before the festival's August 3 kickoff.

GOP Senator Uses Muslims In Ridiculous Argument Against Gun Control
As with previous USA mass shootings, the incident sparked anger among advocates for gun control. This shooter must of known he would not survive yet he when ahead anyway.

Many gamblers falsely believe such machines are more likely to pay off. Weinreich called Danley a "super sweet lady" and says he later learned she had taken off with Paddock.

"It was pre-planned, extensively, and I'm pretty sure that he evaluated everything that he did in his actions, which is troublesome", Lombardo said.

"I believe that because of his countermeasures placed in the peephole and in the hallway, he observed the security guard and he was in fear that he was about to be breached". From those rooms, he would have had a bird's-eye view of the venue's main stage and smaller stages, as well as its entrance and exits, TMZ said. Lombardo did not elaborate on the contents of the note. At this time, the content of the note is unknown.

Investigators remain clueless as to Paddock's motive for the attack.

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something frightful like this was going to happen", Marilou Danley, 62, said in a statement read by her lawyer outside Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters in Los Angeles Wednesday. He has reportedly been stockpiling the weapons for decades but purchased 33 in the past year.
