The family of a suspected man who unleashed a barrage on a Las Vegas on Sunday night at a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip that left at least 58 people dead and more than 500 people injured, is in deep shock.

Marilou Danley, the Filipina-Australian girlfriend of Las Vegas mass-murderer Stephen Paddock, is being interviewed by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in Los Angeles. News first reported the wire transfer, citing "multiple senior law enforcement officials", and CNN later confirmed it with another official.

The attack, now the deadliest mass shooting in US history, came from the 32nd floor balcony of a Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino hotel room.

Police found 23 guns in Paddock's hotel room and another 19 in his home in a retirement community in Mesquite, Nevada.

She said he told her two weeks ago he had a "cheap ticket" for her to travel to the Philippines, which she gratefully accepted but felt the "unexpected trip home and the money was a way of breaking up". Majority are assault rifles, likely to be transported in more than 10 suitcases.

She boarded a flight from Manila to Los Angeles on Tuesday, according to Antonette Mangrobang, a spokeswoman for the Philippine Immigration Bureau. Within hours, police had talked to the killer's brother, who said he had seen or heard no indication Paddock was planning a massacre. "In the days ahead, we will grieve as a nation, we will honour the memory of those lost as a nation and we will come together united as one nation, under God, indivisible", she added.

In November a year ago , at least 52 people were killed in a bombing at a shrine in the Hub district south of Jhal Magsi. Rukhsana Magsi, an in charge of a district hospital in Jhal Magsi, confirmed the casualty toll in remarks to the media.

The motive for why the multi-millionaire property investor, who liked to gamble, carried out the attack on fans at the Route 91 Harvest Festival remains unknown. "She was sent away".

A Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officer was one of the victims of the mass shooting.

In a statement read by her lawyer, the 62-year-old said she knew Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man, and that she loved him and hoped for a quiet future with him. "I didn't even know he knew about guns", Mr Knights said.

Paddock killed himself, according to Las Vegas Police. "Once again, our hearts and prayers are with everyone in Las Vegas and those affected".

The ATF said Paddock had 24 guns in his hotel room, and 12 of them had bump fire stocks, an attachment that helps a semi-automatic rifle mimic the shooting pace of a machine gun.
