They divorced in 2015, but remained friends online.

Police in Las Vegas has revealed that Stephen Paddock, the man who killed more than 58 people when he opened fire on concert-goers in Las Vegas, had an arsenal of at least 42 weapons.

Interviews with former neighbors in a retirement community in Florida revealed that people were surprised he was involved with guns. The elder Paddock's name was added to the FBI's Top Ten Most Wanted list, where he was described as "psychopathic", "reportedly has suicidal tendencies" and "should be considered armed and very unsafe".

The brother of Stephen Paddock, 64, said he's "completely dumbfounded" by the shooting at a country music concert Sunday night, the deadliest in modern USA history. Thousands of rounds of ammunition were found in his Mesquite home and an ingredient used in explosives was discovered inside the shooter's auto.

In Nevada, where Paddock lived, anyone who is at least 18 years old can own a firearm. The guns were bought in Nevada, Utah, California and Texas, said Jill Snyder, special agent in charge of ATF field division in San Francisco.

The official was not authorized to discuss the case publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity after being briefed on the investigation.

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something disgusting like this was going to happen", Danley, 62, said in a written statement read to reporters by her attorney in Los Angeles, where the Federal Bureau of Investigation was questioning her.

But what can we make of all this?

Lombardo said there was still nothing clear about the motivation of the shooter, a 64-year-old regular gambler who owned numerous properties and had no known associations with political, radical or hate groups. What happened in his life that would trigger this insane act on fellow human beings?

We may never know the answers to these and other questions that were buried within a deeply disturbed and homicidal mind.

"Currently she is a person of interest", Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, chief of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said.

The coming hours will tell us more.

The assailant killed eight people and was later shot dead by police.

Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said the shooting spanned between nine and 11 minutes.

The shooting - the worst in modern USA history - has sparked debate over U.S. gun laws, but President Donald Trump has said the discussion over what, if anything, needs to be done was "not for now", the BBC report said.

Mr Trump described the gunman as a "very, very sick individual". "We had no idea where to go".
