LAS VEGAS NEWS BUREAU The killer fired indeterminately at the crowd from the Mandalay Bay

Avoiding the tough issues raised by Sunday night's massacre in Las Vegas, the worst mass shooting in modern US history, President Donald Trump on Wednesday continued his focus on the community's first responders, praising them for their bravery and professionalism.

October 4, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) - Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock, says she knew nothing of his deadly plan.

Paddock also researched locations in Boston, NBC reported, citing multiple law enforcement sources.

The visit, which comes hours after Trump visited Puerto Rico to survey the damage wrought by Hurricane Maria, marks the President's second trip to soothe national concerns in as many days.in Las Vegas, Trump met with local politicians, first responders and survivors of the shooting that killed 58 people and injured more than 500 others.

Almost two dozen guns were recovered in Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock's hotel room and officials said they also found a pair of bump stocks.

In Paddock's Reno home, authorities found five handguns, two shotguns and a "plethora" of ammunition.

Two sisters of Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of the Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock.

Paddock's brother Eric told reporters the $100,000 transfer was evidence that "Steve took care of the people he loved", and that he probably wanted to protect Danley by sending her overseas before the attack.

Paddock wasn't able to move into the room until Saturday, said the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and disclosed the information to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Speaking for the first time on Tuesday night, Danley's family said they believed Paddock had sent her away to her relatives deliberately in the run up to the attacks.

The Filipina woman, 62, is considered a "person of interest" in the investigation of the attack, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said Tuesday afternoon.

"It's been clear since 1934 that we don't want machine guns in the hands of criminals and terrorists and others who want to do us harm".

Visiting Puerto Rico on Tuesday, Trump said jokingly that the recovery from Hurricane Maria there was blowing the United States budget "a little out of whack".

"It never occurred to me in any whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone", she said.

Paddock had an arsenal of weapons in his hotel suite, including bump-fire stocks - legal devices that enable a shooter to fire bullets rapidly, similar to an automatic rifle.

Almost 60 people have died in the attack, and more than 500 people were injured.

Asked to characterize his brother, he termed him an average man who "drove down and gambled in Las Vegas".

President Donald Trump has landed in Las Vegas, where he will meet with victims and first responders of the mass shooting Sunday night.

"This investigation is not ended with the demise of Mr. Paddock", the sheriff said.

Marilou Danley, Paddock's girlfriend, issued a statement Wednesday afternoon through her attorney, Matt Lombard.

Lombardo also said none of the cameras Paddock put up in the hotel room where he unleashed gunfire onto a concert crowd were recording.
