Cops reveal contents of Vegas madman's cryptic note

Las Vegas gunman had booked a hotel near Lollapalooza

Paddock unleashed gunfire on Sunday from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel casino on the Las Vegas Strip, killing 58 and injuring almost 500 people. "We need to engage the public more".

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock had visited the Middle East during a series of cruises, police have revealed. The gunman shot himself as officers closed in. Investigators - who have chased 1,000 leads - have announced plans to put up posters as they appeal for information.

"It's really imperative that the listening public have a very clear understanding that there are still a number of people out there that know that something looked out of place", McMahill said. Now, the investigation is seeking to determine whether anyone else may have known about Paddock's plans for this incident in advance by putting up billboards in Las Vegas, imploring people to come forward with any detail about Paddock they think might be relevant to the investigation. "We will not stop until we have the truth".

On the night of October 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old retired accountant with a penchant for gambling, opened fire on a large crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip, killing 59 people and injuring more than 500.

Sounding frustrated at an afternoon briefing, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Undersheriff Kevin McMahill told reporters investigators have found nothing in Paddock's personal life, political beliefs or financial situation to identify a motive behind the attack.

It is unusual to have so few hints of a motive five days after a mass shooting. "We're so used to, in the first 24 to 48 hours, being able to review social media posts". They confirm that they found the cryptic note but that they have no idea "what those numbers are or mean".

While it can also be used to improvise an explosive device, Las Vegas investigators say Friday that the Tannerite found in Paddock's auto did not resemble an IED.

He requested an upper-floor room overlooking the festival, stockpiled 23 guns, a dozen of them modified to fire continuously like an automatic weapon, and set up cameras inside and outside his room to watch for approaching officers.

The note has not shed any light on the gunman's motives, which authorities are yet to uncover almost a week after the deadliest mass shooting in recent United States history.
