Paddock, the 64-year-old gambler and real estate investor, rained down about 1,600 rounds of ammo from the 32th floor suite of Mandalay Bay hotel into a crowd of more than 22,000 people attending Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival Sunday night, killing 58 concertgoers and injuring almost 500.

A law enforcement official told The Associated Press today that the numbers found on a note located on a nightstand included the distance between the high-rise hotel room that Paddock was using as a perch and the concert below.

A note discovered in the hotel room of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock featured hand-written calculations on where he needed to aim to increase his accuracy and number of kills, U.S. network CBS has reported.

"So he had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there", Newton added.

He killed himself as police closed in.

On the night of October 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old retired accountant with a penchant for gambling, opened fire on a large crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip, killing 59 people and injuring more than 500.

However, 24% feel that the technology now in the vehicle is enough to work perfectly and do not need any advance technology. Ricardo Meijias took part in the research and almost missed a stop sign while using a touch screen.

Fifty-eight victims were killed, making Las Vegas the deadliest shooting in modern USA history.

David Newton described his first impressions of Paddock's hotel room as they moved in amid the flashing lights of a fire alarm set off by an explosive, which had been used to blow through the door. It was "very eerie", he said.

Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said investigators had "looked at literally everything" and still do not have a clear motive.

His motive still remains unknown.

"If you know something, say something", said Aaron Rouse, agent in charge of the Las Vegas FBI office.

They have been closely scrutinising his trips and other activities in a bid to understand why he made a decision to fire on a crowd of country music fans from the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

The official said investigators were interviewing other call girls for information and looking into at least a dozen cruises Paddock took in the last few years, including one to the Middle East. And just before the massacre, he wired $100,000 to his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, in the Philippines before killing almost 60 people and taking his own life.
