Las Vegas Shooting: Law Enforcement Changes Official Story Again
Las Vegas sheriff Joe Lombardo revealed that there is an ongoing FBI case against an “individual of federal interest” other than Stephen Paddock or his girlfriend Marilou Danley.
Paddock opened fire on a country music festival on Oct. 1, 2017, from a room in the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, killing 58 people and injuring 546.
“We do not anticipate charges being brought forward against Marilou Danley,” Lombardo said in his first press conference on the shooting since October 2017.
“As to any other people, the FBI has an ongoing case against an individual of federal interest,” he continued. “I will not be able to elaborate on that statement as because it’s a pending investigation. Any further information in reference to that individual can be provided by the FBI.”
He also reiterated that Paddock was the only shooter responsible for the massacre and that he was the only suspect in the shooting. Lombardo also said that there was no evidence of any radicalization or ideological motivations for the shooting.
Lombardo was asked by a reporter for any more information on that individual, and he answered he cannot give any more information. He did say that it was the case that the individual could be arrested.
