The FBI is shedding some more light on Paddock's background, saying his father was a notorious bank robber who tried to run down an FBI agent with his auto in Las Vegas in 1960.

"As technology has come through in the last number of years I believe the original authors of the act probably did not envision this kind of accessory being used for modifications of this sort", he said.

More than 50 people were killed and more than 500 injured when Nevada man Stephen Paddock, 64, fired on people at the Route 91 country music festival from his 32nd floor room at the Mandalay Bay hotel late Sunday evening local time.

Lombardo said that Paddock had enough ammunition to keep firing, and only a few of his weapons had jammed.

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something terrible like this was going to happen", Danley, 62, said in a written statement read to reporters by her attorney in Los Angeles, where she was being questioned. "We've spoken to him and we do not believe that it is involved".

Authorities said they are still investigating and expect to continue exploring the hotel room and the suspect's house for at least five more days. The sister added, "She didn't even know that she was going to the Philippines until Steve said, 'Marilou, I found you a cheap ticket to the Philippines.'" There is one thing the sister agreed on with investigators and the general public.

Paddock reportedly reserved a room at the Mandalay Bay hotel using some of her documents.
