One rifle is also seen on the floor of the hotel room with a crime scene tag next to it.

Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse said at a news conference on Monday that Paddock, who killed some 58 people and injured 515, was not connected to Daesh.

"Marilou Danley is no longer being sought out as a person of interest", the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said.

Investigators questioned her about Paddock's weapons purchases, a $US100,000 ($140,000 NZD) wire transfer to a Philippine bank that appeared to be intended for her, and whether she saw any changes in his behaviour before she left the US. "In that sense, I thank him for sparing my sister's life". And, ensconced within a locked room in a jam-packed hotel, shooting down at a crowd from very high up, he was virtually unassailable - at least for a span of many, many lethal minutes.

In the hotel room of the shooter, Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, officials said they found at least 10 guns.

Reports say more than 22,000 people were in attendance at the concert staged as part of activities for the Route 91 country festival on the popular Las Vegas Strip in the U.S. state of Nevada, when the gunman opened fire.

"He said he was visiting local firearms shops".

Investigators believe that Paddock used bump-stock for the attack as it modifies a semi-automatic weapon to fire at an automatic rate.

Fennewald said some signs people should pay attention to are behavioral changes in a person, even if they are small.Some behavior changes may not lead to law enforcement getting involved.

The search for Danley initially spanned several countries, with conflicting reports that she could have been in Japan or the Philippines at the time of the shooting.

If media Interviews with Ms Danley's family members are any indication the 62-year-old grandmother will tell Federal Bureau of Investigation agents at LA's headquarters she was not aware of Paddock's shocking plan.

"What we know is once we arrived up there, we had isolated this individual to the two rooms".

Meanwhile, the reason behind the Stephen Paddock's shooting was not yet revealed.

Police recovered almost 50 firearms from three locations they searched, almost half of them from the hotel suite.
