He escaped from prison, however, while serving a 20-year sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in La Tuna, Tex., which landed him on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted Fugitive" list.

Eric Paddock said he first learned of the shooting early Sunday when all five phones in his home started ringing.

But investigators haven't determined a motive for the Sunday night shooting.

It's the deadliest shooting in modern United States history, surpassing the attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, last year, in which 49 people were killed.

"This is such a nice peaceful community to hear that there could be any kind of person that could do such a heinous crime, it's hard to believe", said former neighbor Rebecca Carver who said she was told Stephen had bought the home as an investment property. More than 500 others were hurt in the shooting and subsequent stampede.

"I mean this is an asteroid that fell out of the sky", Eric Paddock said.

"I hope someone figures out, because we'd like to know", Eric Paddock said. It is likely given the death prior to the arrival of the police in his hotel room.

Catalans defy Madrid and occupy polling stations ahead of referendum
The Catalonia independence referendum , deemed illegal by the Spanish constitution, is due to take place at the start of October. But Catalans seem more determined than ever to proceed with the vote, according to Gerry Hadden, a reporter in Barcelona .


The father of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was previously on the FBI's Most Wanted list, law enforcement officials confirmed to CNN on Monday.

As authorities pick apart the life of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, they have come across one major thread of suspicious behavior: how he handled his money.

For Eric, Stephen was just a normal guy.

The mother of Las Vegas gunman, Stephen Paddock, once described him as a "bad boy" during a conversation with a neighbour, it has been revealed.

Lombardo said authorities have found no connections between Paddock and any terror groups.

He also obtained an Alaska hunting and fishing license while living in Texas.

The FAA website shows that the last time he went to get the medical certification required for private pilots who want to fly was February 2008 so he could not have flown legally recently. Since Paddock didn't have a criminal record, Nevada's gun laws would allow him to amass such a collection, which included automatic rifles that may have been converted from semiautomatic weapons.
