Las Vegas shooter reportedly wired $100K to Philippines

Watch: Sarah Huckabee Sanders chokes up during statement on Las Vegas shooting

Almost 60 people have died in the attack, and more than 500 people were injured.

The motive for the shooting remains unclear, but police have said it was "obviously premeditated".

"We struggle for the words to explain to our children how such evil can exist, how there can be such cruelty and suffering", Trump said.

After his escape in 1968, Benjamin Paddock has attacked a bank in San Francisco, before settling under a false identity, in Oregon. "We have absolutely no clue why this happened", he said.

His girlfriend, Marilou Danley, returned to the country late Tuesday night.

She was expected to be questioned upon her arrival in Los Angeles, The New York Times reported.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents met her plane at Los Angeles International Airport before interviewing her, two USA officials briefed on the case told Reuters. "Because Steve is not here to talk anymore".

"I think any person put in her situation would probably answer in same way", Lombardo told reporters. Paddock killed himself in the 32nd floor hotel room he used as a vantage point to rain bullets down on people attending the Route 91 Harvest festival.

The killer also had cameras set up inside and outside the suite.

The Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend says in a statement that she knew him "as a kind, caring, quiet man".

Investigators struggled to understand why Stephen Paddock, 64, assembled an arsenal of almost 50 firearms and used them to spray bullets from the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas Strip hotel into a crowd of country-music fans on Sunday before killing himself. Paddock turned his attention to those outside his door and fired, wounding one of them.

But Eric Paddock said his brother had led an otherwise normal life.

Authorities are investigating whether Paddock acted alone or had accomplices.

"On behalf of the grateful nation, we thank each and everyone of you in law enforcement", he said after meeting with first responders in Las Vegas.

Equifax knew about cyber vulnerabilities before attack, ex-CEO claims
Smith also said the sales occurred after quarterly earnings were reported, which is a common practice within the company. Equifax announced last month hackers had gained access to the personal information of almost 150 million Americans.

"The woman said Danley is "a good person" who would've stopped Paddock had she been there". Danley and Paddock reportedly lived together in the suburbs in Mesquite, Nevada. She was out of the country during the shooting, police said. Authorities haven't told us yet.

Paddock had recently wired $100,000 to the Philippines, a U.S. law enforcement source confirmed to CNN.

"It's been clear since 1934 that we don't want machine guns in the hands of criminals and terrorists and others who want to do us harm".

Snyder said authorities are still determining which firearms were used in the shooting.

Meanwhile, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Joe Lombardo said it is crucial to talk to anyone who knew gunman Stephen Paddock in the hunt for possible accomplices.

She added that "it never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone".

"A team of six officers that approached security, they went up the elevators after discussing the situation with the security and obtaining intelligence", Lombardo said.

Attorney Matt Lombard is working with Danley, according to Lori Stanton with Lombard Law. 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.

The Daily Mail newspaper in the United Kingdom published several photos taken in Paddock's room after the shooting.

Photos from 2013 show Paddock visiting the southeastern Asian island nation.

"These folks were attacked by a man from 32 stories up with automatic rifle fire and so I don't really know how you plan for that".

But those rifles were far from the gunman's only weapons.

The guns were bought in Nevada, Utah, California and Texas, said Jill Snyder, special agent in charge of ATF field division in San Francisco.

"The author of the attack of Las Vegas is a soldier of the islamic State", said Qama, the propaganda organ of the ARS in a message in Arabic, without more of precision.
