Paddock, firing from his high-rise hotel suite at the Mandalay Bay resort, killed 58 people and injured hundreds of others at a country-music festival on the Las Vegas Strip far below before killing himself, police said. Located in the las vegas area.
The July 7, 2017 exchange appears to be a discussion about firearms, and the document states plainly that "investigators believe these communications may have been related to the eventual attack at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas".
"We have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try", another email sent the same day said. An email in response suggested trying a bump stock on the rifle with a 100-round magazine. An FBI spokeswoman in Las Vegas declined to comment on the documents on Friday evening. It is not known who the latter email account belongs to.
The Los Angeles Times reported that investigators are not sure why Paddock would send emails between accounts he controlled, or whether one was controlled by another person, which would mean, "investigators need to determine who was communicating with him about weapons that were used in the attack", one of the warrants said.
Trump asked why 'pretty Korean lady' analyst wasn't negotiating with North Korea
Botswana's Ministry of International Affairs said the comments were "highly irresponsible, reprehensible, and racist". At the end of the Oval Office briefing, Trump reportedly asked the woman where she was from.
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told CBS News Paddock "wasn't on our radar, he wasn't on the federal database radar", noting that other than a couple of traffic tickets, he didn't have a criminal record.

The agent also noted: "this aspect of the investigation is still the subject of intense review".

After the sentencing, Manning, who was then known as Bradley, identified as transgender and changed her first name to Chelsea. A federal election filing , made on Thursday, confirmed Manning's intention to run in the November elections as a Democrat.
The court records also show that investigators sought to preserve the content of social media accounts on Instagram and Facebook linked to Paddock and Danely. In one affidavit, the Federal Bureau of Investigation notes that Danley's Facebook account was set to private and then deleted in the hours after the shooting.
One affidavit filed in the early days of the investigation made a reference to the gunman's health.
