- Investigators scanning computers belonging to Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock found "numerous" child pornography photos, the city's sheriff revealed Friday, adding that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into a person of interest in the case. At one point, Paddock looked up the number of beachgoers in Santa Monica, California.

"We have done a lot of work trying to piece together what happened", Sheriff Joe Lombardo said during a news conference Friday.

Authorities on Friday released a preliminary investigative report on the Las Vegas shooting in response to large public interest in the case. He said there was no radical ideology found in the investigation. Lollapalooza took place between August 3-6 and "Paddock specifically requested a room overlooking the venue when he made the reservation", the police report states.

The report mentions Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, who was out of the country during the attack and who has been interviewed by investigators several times.

The exchange occurred during a hearing in which CNN and other media outlets were seeking access to sealed court records about the probe into the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history. Lombardo reiterated Paddock, 64, acted alone although he said there is an open FBI investigation into an unnamed person of interest.
