Details released included an official timeline of how police responded to the shooting starting at 10:05 p.m. Sunday when the first shots were fired, and ending at 11:27 p.m. when the suspect was confirmed down.

“[Paddock] meticulously planned one of the worse domestic attacks in U.S. history,” Lombardo said. “[He] was a disturbed man who spent decades acquiring weapons and leading secret life.”

FBI Special Agent Aaron Rouse and city officials joined Lombardo during a press conference at Metro PD headquarters Wednesday afternoon. “We have no one in custody. We have found no evidence to indicate this was terrorism,” Rouse said.

The FBI deployed over 100 personnel from across the nation to Las Vegas. “Our resolve is firm – we will get to the bottom of this,” said Rouse.

“We’re doing everything we possibly can to bring this investigation into fruition,” Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak said.

While authorities said they have not identified any accomplices, they will not stop the investigation until they 100 percent rule it out.

Police unveiled the following new details about the investigation:


A total of 317 injured victims have been discharged from local hospitals.

As of 6:15 p.m. Wednesday, Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center confirmed 45 patients remain at the hospital, 23 patients are still in critical condition, out of 199 patients initially received. There have been 16 fatalities.

Paddock gambled inside Mandalay Bay at one point during his stay.

Inside Paddock’s Hotel Suite and Vehicle

Police reached the 32nd floor of the hotel within 12 minutes of the first shots being fired.

No suicide note was found.

Investigators recovered 1,600 rounds of ammunition and at least three hunting scopes in Paddock’s hotel suite.

Around 200 rounds were fired in the hotel hallway where a hotel security guard was shot and injured. “It was miraculous the hotel security guard survived,” Lombardo said.

Two cameras installed for surveillance were found in a room service cart outside of the hotel room, an additional camera was found on the hotel room door’s peephole, and another camera was discovered in a baby monitor found in the living room of the hotel suite.

Investigators discovered over 20 pounds each of the chemicals Ammonium Nitrate and Tannerite, inside the suspect’s vehicle parked at the Mandalay Bay
