The Australian girlfriend of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock has arrived in the USA for questioning.

But while officials have confirmed that Marilou Danley was in the Philippines on Sunday when Paddock opened fire on a crowd attending a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip, it was not known whether the money was for her or her family or for another goal. Paddock killed himself before police reached his hotel room.

Paddock reportedly met Danley several years ago while she was working at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Nevada.

A Filipino official says Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock traveled at least twice to the Philippines, where his girlfriend was born. "He was so rude to her in front of us".

Two Nevada gun shops have confirmed that they sold firearms to Paddock in the past year and said he passed all required background checks.

Workers at Stephen Paddock's local Starbucks immediately remembered the tall man with a big beer belly and bags under his eyes who used to come in with his girlfriend, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Speaking about Paddock, Juertes said the man used to visit his mother occasionally but never interacted with the other residents.

"She probably was even (more) shocked than us because she is more closer to him than us", said one of the sisters, who live near Brisbane.

Police said Paddock strafed the concert crowd with bullets for nine to 11 minutes before taking his own life, and had set up cameras inside and outside his hotel suite so he could see police as they closed in on his location.

Stephen Paddock, a reputed heavy gambler, allegedly wired almost $100,000 to the Philippines prior to the shooting in which he took his own life.

Paddock smuggled a cache of 23 weapons into the hotel, including AK-47s and "bump stock" devices to make his guns fully automatic, in 10 separate bags.

Paddock's girlfriend has since touched down in the USA after flying from the Philippines to be interviewed by the FBI as part of the ongoing investigation.

Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo on Tuesday confirmed that Danley was in the Philippines and said she is now considered "a person of interest". Authorities have not yet determined the exact date or objective of the wire transfer or who the recipient was.

"The people he loved, he took care of and as he was descending into hell, he wanted to try and take care of her", he said.

Interviewed with her face blurred so she could remain anonymous, one of Danley's sisters told Australia's 7 News she believed Paddock had deliberately sent her away.

Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo on Wednesday said he expected a "substantial amount" of information on Paddock's motive would emerge in the next 48 hours.

Snyder said authorities would not have been notified of the rifle purchases but would have been informed if two or more guns were bought at one time.
