She does not appear to have been involved in the shooting and was in the Philippines when the shooting took place, authorities said. In 1959 and 1960, he robbed two banks in Phoenix before being arrested in Las Vegas and be sentenced in 1961 to 20 years in prison.

Neighbors in Reno - where he had a home, in addition to a property in Mesquite - described Paddock as "extremely standoffish", The Washington Post reported.

He is believed to have killed himself as armed police closed in and stormed the hotel room from which he committed the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.

At least 50 people died and hundreds were injured when Paddock opened fire at a country music concert from the 32 floor of the Mandalay Bay, a hotel-casino next to the concert venue in the gambling hub. Eric believes their mother was the last one to speak with Stephen Paddock.

"If he'd have killed my kids, I couldn't be more dumbfounded", Eric Paddock said.

"He was my brother and it's like an asteroid fell out of the sky", Eric Paddock said.

"I don't know how he could stoop to this low point, hurting someone else", Bruce said, adding that his brother was a "never-in-a-hurry" type of person.

A festival being headlined by New Zealand pop star Lorde may have been the Las Vegas shooter's first target, a report says.

Hotel employees had been in the his room prior to the shooting but did not notice anything amiss, Lombardo said.

In 1968, Benjamin Hoskins Paddock escaped federal prison in Texas, which landed him on the FBI's most wanted list, NBC News reported.

Those at the Mesquite store, Guns & Guitars, say they sold a weapon to Paddock, but they did not see any sign that would make them think he is mentally unstable or something.

Paddock reportedly was using Danley's identification to play video poker in the days leading up to his rampage. Stephen Paddock was not filed by the local police services, but on Monday, the group islamic State (EI) has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Paddock was a retired accountant and didn't have a criminal record.
