  • Las Vegas shooting: Female person of interest former Gold Coast resident

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Craig Paddock's father was a notorious bank robber who tried to run down an FBI agent with his vehicle in Las Vegas in 1960 and was on the agency's most wanted list after escaping from a federal prison in Texas in 1968. An FBI wanted poster says his father, now deceased, was "diagnosed as psychopathic" and "reportedly has suicidal tendencies".

On the surface, Paddock didn't seem like a typical mass murderer, said Clint Van Zandt, a former FBI hostage negotiator and supervisor in the bureau's behavioral science unit.

Benjamin Paddock was in and out of prison in IL before heading to Arizona, where he robbed a bank and escaped from prison, landing him on that list.

The brother of Stephen Paddock, 64, said his family is "shocked, horrified, completely dumbfounded" by the shooting at a country music concert Sunday night, the deadliest in modern USA history.

"I can't comment at the moment, I can't say anything", her sister Liza Werner told the Sydney Daily Telegraph, which said she was a grandmother.

Other canceled dates include stops in Boston, Chicago, and Houston, with Manson taking a break from touring through October 14. Manson, real name Brian Warner, had only kicked off his Heaven Upside Down Tour in Maryland on Wednesday.

"He was my brother and it's like an asteroid fell out of the sky", Eric Paddock said. "We are not inclined to release any information at this time, the information being confidential", BI spokesperson Antonette Mangrobang said in a text message to ABS-CBN News. She is rumored to have lived with him since early 2017. I hardly know the family, but Steve is a nice boy. He was found operating a bingo parlor in Springfield under an assumed name. It is believed he died in 1998.

Armed with what appeared to be at least one automatic weapon, Stephen used the elevated vantage point to fire into the crowds across the Las Vegas Strip at the Route 91 Harvest festival, where the country singer Jason Aldean was onstage. CNN reports that he previously lived in Orlando, Florida. Mesquite police issued a statement saying that they had never dealt with him "in any way". One of the ex-wives lives in Southern California, where a large gathering of reporters congregated in her neighborhood.

"We assure though that the BI shall cooperate with any and all of our global counterparts in providing any relevant information that would help their investigation", she said. The lawsuit was eventually dismissed by a judge and settled by arbitration.

Paddock also had the advantage of time, using multiple weapons and possibly reloading.
