This is a developing story.
The Las Vegas police are investigating a possible “person of interest” in the October mass shooting that killed 58 people at an outdoor country music concert. The Las Vegas county sheriff confirmed that the shooter’s girlfriend is not the person of interest.
It was also revealed that child porn was found on the shooter’s computer.
A short video clip of the sheriff’s press conference from CBS News is included below.
Investigators scanning computers belonging to Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock found “numerous” child pornography photos, the city’s sheriff revealed Friday, adding that the FBI is looking into a person of interest in the case.
It was Joe Lombardo’s first press conference since Oct. 13, 2017.
Lombardo said a preliminary police report of the investigation into the shooting will be released today, offering more details about the police resources used in the probe and a timeline of events surrounding the shooting.
He added that the person of interest is not Marilou Danley, Paddock’s girlfriend, and reiterated that authorities believe Paddock was a lone shooter.
Paddock gunned down 58 people in the Oct. 1, 2017 attack, firing at a music festival crowd from the confines of his Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino suite.
“I realize it’s been 3 months since you have received an update on the 1 October shooting,” Lombardo told reporters Friday. “We have done a lot of work trying to piece together what happened.”
The sheriff said investigators “have gone over 2,000 leads and looked at 21,560 hours of video.”
“This report won’t answer every question, or even the biggest question as to why he did what he did,” Lombardo said. “We are all going to have to be patient and let the investigation run its course.”
