A total of 58 victims were killed in the mass shooting on Oct. 1, 2017 when Stephen Paddock opened fire from a Mandalay Bay hotel room onto concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. Investigators found Paddock with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

In new information released Friday, Lombardo confirmed a total of 851 people were directly injured in the mass shooting and unveiled another unidentified person is under investigation related to this case.

Lombardo says they do not anticipate any charges against Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley. Confusion has surrounded whether or not Danley was present at the Mandalay Bay October 1st. The report confirms Danley was out of the country from September 14th to October 3rd. The report goes on to say Paddock moved his car from self-park to valet just after noon on October 1st, and he made that transaction under Danley's name.

In her interview with investigators, Danley says Paddock had acted distant in the past year and that they were no longer intimate. She says when they stayed at Mandalay Bay in early September, Paddock acted odd. She said he moved from window to window in their room on the 60th floor, looking at different angles of the concert venue.

Lombardo also unveiled that investigators have been unable to locate the missing hard drive from Paddock's computer. In a search history on his other devices, it is revealed Paddock searched multiple open-space concert venues. He also searched SWAT tactics and explosive devices.

Investigators also found hundreds of images of child pornography on one of Paddock's laptops.

The Clark County sheriff said he was "going against normal protocol and releasing this preliminary report now " due to public interest. 

The preliminary report released Friday includes names of sources investigators used, an overview of the incident, and the sequence of events starting from when Paddock checked into the Ogden hotel in Las Vegas weeks prior for the Life is Beautiful festival, and ending when he was found dead in his suite inside Mandalay Bay on Oct. 1, 2017.

A full comprehensive report on the investigation is not expected to be released until the end of the year, Lombardo said.
