  • Unarmed Hotel Security Guard Praised For Rushing Las Vegas Gunman's Suite

But the reclusive gambler lifted the veil a little on the life he led in the years before he killed 58 strangers and then himself on October 1.

"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, 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.

Meanwhile, a note discovered in Paddock's hotel room from where he opened fire featured hand-written calculations on where he needed to aim to increase his accuracy and number of kills, USA network CBS reported.

At 10:05 p.m., Paddock, 64, began firing into the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, authorities said.

In previous mass killings or terrorist attacks, killers left notes, social media postings and information on a computer _ or even phoned police.

A federal official said authorities are looking into the possibility Paddock planned additional attacks, including a auto bombing.

Charles "Sid" Heal, a retired Los Angeles County sheriff's commander and tactical expert, said the new timeline "changes the whole perspective of the shooting".

"Calm before the storm": Trump signals to North Korea, Iran
Mattis said last week during testimony on Capitol Hill that he favors staying within the deal. The nuclear accord with Iran was implemented in January 2016.

The hand-written note was found near a window that Paddock had smashed to fire on the crowd, and included calculations about where to aim to kill as many people as possible in the crowd, about 400 metres away from the hotel.

Wynn said Paddock didn't run up debts or have a gambling problem, and he had "the most vanilla profile one could possibly imagine". The suspect shot himself to death before police stormed his 32nd-floor suite in the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort, high above the concert venue.

Investigators believe a note found in the Las Vegas gunman's hotel room contained a series of numbers that helped him calculate more precise shots, a law enforcement official said.

However, the authorities do not know what made him stop shooting, as yet, the CNN reported.

McMahill said police have looked into "everything", including Paddock's personal life, political affiliations, his economic situation and social behaviors while trying to determine a motive.

Paddock said he rarely drank alcohol when he gambled, because "at the stakes I play, you want to have all your wits about you, or as much wit as I have". "So he had had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there", he said.

McMahill said that investigators have also received more than 1,000 leads from the public, but warned that "rumor and supposition doesn't help".

What you need to know about the Las Vegas shooting
The Blackstone hotel also released a statement, saying the gunman specifically requested a "view room" that faced Grant Park. Danley said she was grateful but anxious that the unexpected trip home and the money "was a way of breaking up with me".

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something disgusting like this was going to happen", Marilou Danley, 62, said in a statement read by her lawyer outside Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters in Los Angeles.

When two agents from the K-9 unit heard there was an active shooter in the area, they raced over to the Mandalay Bay hotel to help and form a make-shift SWAT team ready to raid the hotel.

"It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone", Danley said in the statement.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents also met with Paddock's brother Eric Paddock for another round of questions after he arrived in Las Vegas to pick up the killer's remains, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

ISIS had claimed Paddock was one of their "soldiers" who carried out the attack on its behalf after converting to Islam six months ago.

Paddock described himself as "biggest video poker player in the world" and said that in 2006, at the height of his play, he averaged 14 hours of poker a day.

"Sometimes there isn't an understandable explanation for why someone commits a horrific crime", Mr Gomez said.

Vehicle hits pedestrians outside Natural History Museum in London
Nearby museums including the Science Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum were evacuated with Tube stations sealed off by police. Det Con Darren Case, from the force's roads and transport team, said he appreciated "the concern and alarm this incident caused".

Authorities recovered 23 guns from Paddock's room, police said.
