Paddock, the lone suspect according to Las Vegas police, killed himself in the hotel suite he had rented on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino as police closed in on his location. "Today, in our investigation, we don't have any of that uncovered", he said. Authorities then verified that these pictures were real, CNN reported.

"We are united in our grief, in our support for those who have suffered and united in our resolve to end such evil in our time", Pence said on Saturday, joining Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman and other local leaders at a City Hall commemoration for victims of the shooting that followed a prayer walk through the city.
It wasn't clear whether Paddock fired any of the illuminated bullets during the high-rise massacre Sunday night, but his purchase of 1,000 rounds provided more evidence of how methodically he planned the attack. Police have now been able to match all of the cell phone chargers found in the room with multiple cell phones that Paddock had with him. The official wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
Police say Paddock's room was about 500 yards from his targets-attendees at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, a three-day country music concert. He attempted to book a room at the El Cortez, but there were no vacancies, according to the information.
Although that behavior sounds unusual, it isn't out of place in a town like Las Vegas, where media companies and other exhibitors shuttle in vast amounts of supplies for conventions and conferences, said Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., who represents the Las Vegas Strip.
A group of firefighters driving back to their Vegas station after responding to a call for a minor car crash ended up being the first to respond to the shooting massacre. The devices were found in Paddock's hotel room.
There was no explosion or fire from the two rounds, one of which penetrated the tank, as jet fuel in storage is almost impossible to ignite with gunshots, airport officials said on Friday.
Danley, however, has told authorities she had no idea Paddock was planning an attack and her lawyer read a statement saying she knew him as "a kind, caring man". He said they have looked into details regarding Paddock's personal life, political affiliations, social behaviors, and economic situation - but answers remain evasive.
The shooting has refueled debate on gun control in the US, with even the powerful pro-gun National Rifle Association calling on authorities to review laws surrounding "bump stocks".
"I think it's part of human nature", said Michael Stone, a professor of clinical psychiatry at Columbia University who has studied hundreds of mass killings. People are asked if they know something to say something. "But they may also want some type of closure as to why in the world did this occur".

Undersheriff McMahill said law enforcement will continue to dig into Paddock's background to learn more.
