GOP leaders say no action on gun legislation

At least 20 dead, more than 100 injured in Las Vegas shooting

Her sister who lives in Queensland says she is a good person and knew nothing about Paddock's plot to slaughter dozens of revellers at a country music festival on the Vegas Strip.

"I anticipate he was looking for anybody coming to take him into custody", Lombardo said earlier in the day. Overall, 527 people were injured during the mass shooting.

Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines days before the shooting, said a USA official who was not authorized to speak publicly because of the continuing investigation.

Paddock, a 64-year-old retired accountant, quietly stockpiled an arsenal of high-powered weapons while pursuing a passion for high-stakes gambling at Nevada casinos, where his game of choice was video poker, a relatively solitary pursuit with no dealer and no humans to play against. He took his own life before authorities found 23 weapons in his hotel room and another 19 at his home in Mesquite, Nevada.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo Las Vegas Metropolitan Police released the tentative timeline of what occurred the night that 59, including the gunman, people were killed. I still don't know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that me and my crew are safe.

While the White House has rebuffed calls to reopen the fraught United States debate on gun control, Congress did shelve a controversial plan to make it easier to purchase gun silencers and make it more hard to classify certain ammunition as "armor piercing".

She was reportedly met by federal agents at the airport after traveling back from the Philippines.

Police "can't be at all places at all times", Lombardo said, so it's vital that when anybody sees anything suspicious, he or she should alert authorities.

Investigators questioned her about Paddock's weapons purchases, a $100,000 wire transfer to a Philippine bank that appeared to be intended for her, and whether she saw any changes in his behaviour before she left the United States.

Paddock bought the one-story, three-bedroom home about 80 miles north of Las Vegas in 2015 for about $370,000.

In a media conference that revealed chilling new details on Paddock's planning for the massacre, Sheriff Lombardo said he expected a "substantial amount" of information on Paddock's motive would emerge in the next 48 hours.

She boarded a flight from Manila to Los Angeles on Tuesday, according to Antonette Mangrobang, a spokeswoman for the Philippine Immigration Bureau.

Danley's sisters, speaking to CNN affiliate Seven Network Australia, said that Danley didn't know anything about the shooting ahead of time and that Paddock "sent her away" before the attack.

Asked about gun laws, the president said "we'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by".

The hail of gunfire stopped when security guards approached Paddock's room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, McMahill said.

The officials said that as of midday Wednesday, there was no indication she was aware of Paddock's plans.

She said she was initially pleased when Stephen Paddock wired her money in the Philippines to buy a house for her family, but she later feared it was a way to break up with her.
