Paddock, who had 23 firearms inside his 32nd-floor suite at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, recently gambled between $10,000 and $30,000 a day at Las Vegas casinos, NBC News reported, citing law enforcement officials and a casino executive. Family members said there was no previous indication that Paddock could commit such violent actions, considered to be the worst mass shooting in the country's recent history.

It came as big unfortunate news to everyone when shooting incident in Las Vegas claimed several lives and left more than 500 injured.

The room looked down 1,200 feet at the Route 91 Harvest festival, where about 22,000 people attended a Jason Aldean concert.

The official also said Tuesday that Paddock had transferred $100,000 to the Philippines in the days before the attack that killed 59 people at a country music concert.

CalVCB says even those who may have no expenses today are encouraged to apply now in case they incur expenses in the future, such as counseling.

Photos obtained by the Daily Mail show chilling images of weapons and ammunition littered throughout Stephen Paddock's hotel room after a deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Paddock's motive remains unknown.

Aaron Rouse, the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent in charge in Las Vegas, said investigators saw no immediate evidence connecting it to an worldwide terror organisation, despite a claim of responsibility from the Islamic State group.

But authorities are hoping for clues as his girlfriend, Marilou Danley returned to the United States Tuesday night from the Philippines.

Paddock is believed to have checked into the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on September 28, Lombardo revealed during a press conference, and he had an "excess of ten rifles" in his room. He then killed himself as police closed in. The shooting was believed to be a "lone wolf" attack.

"Las Vegas will never be quite the same as a result of this", Mr Sisolak said.

As a lawful gun owner, as a defender of the Bill of Rights - all of them - I say you can't saddle the 99.9 percent of gun owners who have done nothing wrong with the sins of the 0.1 percent who have criminal intent.

A search of Paddock's home in Reno turned up another five handguns and two shotguns, which, added to the weapons found in his Mesquite home and in the Mandalay Bay Hotel suite, brings the total to more than 50.

Getty photographer David Becker has said: "It was so dark I couldn't really see what was happening".
