Here are news leads to the unspeakable atrocity in Las Vegas where at least 50 people have been killed and an estimated 400 hundred injured by a man with something like a submachine gun.

Ms Danley said she was "devastated by the deaths and injuries that have occurred" and said she prayed for the victims and their families. The previously reported number, 59, includes Paddock, whom police believe shot himself. Investigators were examining a $100,000 wire transfer Paddock, 64, sent to an account in the Philippines that "appears to have been intended" for Danley, a senior US homeland security official told Reuters on Tuesday.

"In that sense, I thank him for sparing my sister's life", she said, adding her sister was "really in love with Steve". Police recovered 19 guns, as well as explosive material and large quantities of ammunition, from the home Paddock and Danley shared.

"The classification of these devices depends on whether they mechanically alter the function of the firearm to fire fully automatic", said Jill Snyder, ATF Special Agent in Charge.

At an evening news conference to update the investigation, Las Vegas Police Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said Paddock put a camera inside the peephole of his Mandalay Bay hotel room to see down the hallway as he opened fire on concertgoers at a Jason Aldean show.

United States website The Daily Beast is reporting gunman Stephen Paddock rented rooms overlooking the Life Is Beautiful Festival at the Ogden apartment tower, quoting a senior law enforcement source briefed on the investigation.

A table outside the room believed to have been used by Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock in a photo published Tuesday. Investigators then looked into other people Paddock knew and what information anyone may have had about his plans.

In an interview with Australia's Channel 7 TV network, her sisters - their faces obscured and their names withheld - described Danley as "a good person" who would've stopped Paddock had she been there.

Investigators found that Paddock meticulously planned the shooting.

Police recovered almost 50 firearms from three locations they searched, almost half of them from the hotel suite.
