Police yet to establish motive of mass shooting in Las Vegas

Las Vegas shooting

The attack is considered the deadliest mass shooting in recent United States history.

"The Hyundai that was sought in connection with the LV (Las Vegas) shooting was located during a search warrant executed at (Stephen) Paddock's house in Reno", Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) tweeted on its official page.

Investigators have yet to determine the motive for the rampage Paddock carried out from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, killing 58 people and injuring nearly 500.

Police were searching for two vehicles the night of the shooting, but one of the cars was found that night.

So far, investigators have found no evidence supporting a claim by ISIS that Paddock had converted to Islam and carried out the attack on the terror group's behalf, according to the information provided by the source.

Paddock reserved rooms at the Ogden, a luxury condo tower in Las Vegas, for September 17-28.

Investigators also found a note containing numbers inside the hotel suite, but police say it was not a suicide note or manifesto.

A memorial at the Welcome To Las Vegas Sign on October 5, 2017 for the victims taken during the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest festival this past Sunday.

The public appeal came a day before U.S. Vice President Mike Pence was slated to join Mayor Carolyn Goodman and other local leaders at a City Hall commemoration for victims of the shooting, following a prayer walk through the city. He killed 58 and wounded almost 500 before killing himself.

He said officers were "confident" there was no second shooter in the room with Paddock, but said they were still investigating whether there may have been someone else who knew about the shooting in advance.

Authorities have said they plan to return the belongings to people in the next week.

"We all want answers", he said, adding that rumors and speculation are not helpful to the investigation. "He's an absolute hero".

Danley, who returned late on Tuesday from a family visit to the Philippines, is regarded by investigators as a person of interest.
