In a new disclosure, authorities said two bullets Paddock fired struck a large jet fuel storage tank at the edge of the city's main airport, about a block from the concert grounds, indicating an apparent attempt by the gunman to create even greater havoc.

The first booking ran from August 1 to 6, with another room added from August 3 to 6, the exact dates of Lollapalooza, when hundreds of thousands were in and around Grant Park to see Muse, the Arcade Fire, and dozens of other musical acts. But Paddock never showed up.

"[Paddock] never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning something awful like this was going to happen", Ms Danley, who flew into LA on Tuesday to speak with investigators, said in a statement released by her lawyer. Lombardo said that he was likely monitoring approaching police officers.

On Sunday night, Paddock used his perch in a suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort to unleash a barrage of rapid gunfire on a crowd of country music fans attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival. He killed himself as police were preparing to enter his room.

After the massacre, people trying to puzzle through his motive wondered if he had some grudge against people who like country music, given his choice to target an event featuring artists like country music superstar Jason Aldean. It featured acts like Chance the Rapper, Muse, Gorillaz, Lorde, Blink-182 and The xx. So it seems that Paddock was looking for circumstances and locations that would allow him to unleash as much horror on as many innocent people as possible.

The official said a note containing a series of numbers was found on a nightstand in Paddock's room at the Mandalay Bay hotel after the shooting. That festival featured Chicago's Chance The Rapper, who also performed at Lollapalooza on August 5.

"In the spirit of the safety of this community or anywhere else in the United States I think it's important to provide that information, but I don't have it", Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said in an interview on Thursday.
