Paddock, 64, carried out the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history on Sunday night (local time) when he fired shots from a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Local sheriff Joseph Lombardo has described the man as a "lone wolf" who was found dead in his 32nd floor hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, likely from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The shooter rained machine gun fire down on the more than 20,000 attendees of the concert, with over 500 people suffering injuries in the resulting chaos. She reportedly intends to clear her name and so far appears to have no connection to the deadly incident.

Saudi energy minister says agreements with Russian Federation helped oil markets to stabilise
Saudi Arabia , meanwhile, is leading the worldwide coalition launching daily airstrikes against Houthi-held settlements in Yemen. Saudi Arabia's General Investment Authority granted licenses to four Russian companies to work fully in the construction sector.

It was initially thought Paddock had been working with an accomplice named as Marilou Danley, a 62-year-old Australian woman who was identified as Paddock's room-mate. Investigators were examining a $100,000 wire transfer Paddock, 64, sent to an account in the Philippines that "appears to have been intended" for Danley, a senior USA homeland security official told Reuters on Tuesday. "In that sense, I thank him for sparing my sister's life".

Some time passed before SWAT breached the door and entered the room, but during that time the shooting had stopped, he said.

A table outside the room believed to have been used by Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock in a photo published Tuesday.

Alberta, NB premiers disappointed by cancellation of Energy East pipeline project
Jean, one of two UCP MLAs in the oil heartland of Fort McMurray, also pointed his finger at Notley and the provincial government. Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre , who has opposed the pipeline on environmental grounds, said he was thrilled to see it abandoned.

Ms Danley is expected to be questioned about $US100,000 Paddock is believed to have wired to the Philippines recently.

In an earlier interview with CBS News, Mr Sullivan revealed that he had sold Paddock a rifle on Thursday, September 28, and that he had sold him four other firearms over the past year.

He also said that if Paddock did purchase a fully automated weapon, the purchase itself wouldn't be suspicious, but the reason for buying it may be. Danley left her husband, Geary Danley, in 2013 and moved in with Paddock.

George Foreman challenges Steven Seagal to 10-round fight
Mr Foreman is the ex-champion, he won two times world heavyweight belt, even in his age he is able to knock out anyone. Whatever it be, the fight Foreman-Seagal as a spectacle would be off the scale.

Investigators are still trying to trace that money and are also looking into a least a dozen financial reports over the past several weeks that said Paddock gambled more than $10,000 per day, the official said.
