The Las Vegas gunman who killed 58 people and injured several hundreds in an October mass shooting likely acted alone, and his girlfriend is not a suspect in the investigation, a sheriff announced on Friday.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo's briefing, set Friday, comes after a lawyer for the police department asked a judge on Tuesday to keep search warrant documents sealed because charges are still being investigated. CNN reports prosecutors could bring charges in the next 60 days, but it's not clear who they would be against. "This report won't answer every question, or even the biggest question, as to why he did what he did".

Paddock's "demeanor" changed in the year before the massacre, the report indicated.

Catherine Lombardo, an attorney for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting, also appeared on the program. "Paddock was also observed moving numerous suitcases from his vehicle to the various units he rented".

Court filings released late last week showed that federal authorities believe he had planned meticulously for both the attack and for the investigation he knew would follow.

Law enforcement has identified Stephen Paddock as the lone gunman in the shooting.

Recently details from the 1 October investigation are shedding light on what Marilou Danley had to say about her relationship with Stephen Paddock and his mental state.

A number of guns can be seen littering the floor of the hotel room.

The mass shooting in Las Vegas took place on October 1, during a concert in the Route 91 Country Music Festival. Paddock died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound as police closed in on him to stop his shooting spree. Police also recovered several hundred child pornography photographs on Paddock's laptop, the report said.

It said: "Danley stated Paddock's demeanour changed over the course of the a year ago". Police dug through Paddock's computers and found searches suggesting that he considered Santa Monica beach and Fenway Park as potential targets.

He had refused anti-depression medication but had been prescribed anti-anxiety medicine.

Almost four months after the massacre, the inquiry into the largest mass shooting in modern American history is still mired in questions; chief among them: Why did Paddock do it?

Paddock went from his Florida home to Las Vegas Saturday for hours of interviews with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, a police detective, a profiler and a psychologist, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

"He was indebted to no one and in fact paid all his gambling debts off before the shooting", investigators wrote.

The report shows that Paddock traveled from Las Vegas to Mesquite, Nevada, nearly daily during the week he stayed there ahead of the October 1 shooting.
