Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said at a later news conference Paddock had placed two cameras in the hall and another in the peephole of the door of his room. "I need patience. This is an investigation [that] is far from being concluded..." But those don't appear to be among the 10 or more found in the Mandalay Bay hotel room.

Without their expertise, more people could have died, said Dr. Douglas Fraser, vice chief of trauma at University Medical Center of Southern Nevada, where many of the wounded were treated.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack and said the gunman was "a soldier" who had converted to Islam months ago, but it provided no evidence to back up the claim. That is followed by the 32 who died in the Virginia Tech campus shooting in 2007, in Blacksburg, Virginia.

Police officials said Paddock possibly also had a device similar to a hammer to smash the hotel windows at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, from where he carried out the murders. "Be it law enforcement, traffic enforcement or arrests, nothing at all", he said.

Housekeepers said they "saw no signs of anything" suspicious in the two-room suite, Nevada Rep. Dina Titus told CNN.

They show semi-automatic assault-style rifles on the floor and on furniture.

The shooter opened fire from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay hotel on Sunday night at approximately 10:08 p.m, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMDP). "We have been in contact with her and we plan to engage her upon her return to the country", Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters. He said he was aware that his brother had a couple of handguns he kept in a safe, perhaps a long rifle, but no automatic weapons.

"We still consider her a person of interest".

Paddock and Danley started dating earlier this year, the Daily Mail reported. One manufacturer, Slide Fire, posts a letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms explaining how and why the devices are legal: "The stock has no automatically functioning mechanical parts or springs and performs no automatic function when installed".

Eventually, they found a second hotel and got a room for the night.

Francine Segreti of Germantown thinks the first thing to think of when it comes to this is gun control.

Campos, who was shot in the right leg, was out of the hospital on Wednesday.

Authorities do not consider the transactions necessarily suspicious for Paddock, a retired accountant who reportedly made his wealth in real estate and gambled large sums of money, ABC reported.

While other mass killers have left a trail of plain-sight clues that helped investigators quickly understand what drove them to violence, Paddock led a low-key, private life.

Asked about gun laws, the president said "we'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by". But they also recognized the spirit of togetherness that the traumatic event had brought about.

"This individual ... didn't leave the sort of immediate thumbprints you find on these kinds of attacks".

Danley's sisters, who were not identified by name and whose faces were blurred, added that Danley would willingly cooperate with investigators.

The California Victim Compensation Board (CalVCB) can help pay bills and expenses resulting from violent crime, according to the CalVCB website.

Authorities found 19 more guns at his home in Mesquite, as well as explosives and thousands of rounds of ammunition. "And it triggered my memory". "Parents and spouses used their own bodies as shields to protect their loved ones".

Paddock was divorced with no known children.
