FBI Official: Motive Still Unknown on Vegas Hotel Shooter; Report to Come

The FBI could release a report on the shooting attack that killed 58 in Las Vegas before the October 1 attack’s first anniversary, according to The Las Vegas Review-Journal.

"Now, that’s a long time for some people, but speaking for the FBI, that’s light speed, all right?” said Aaron Rouse, special agent in charge, on Wednesday in The Review-Journal.

"Ours is focused a large part on the why, OK? Which is what everybody wants to know," Rouse said.

The shooting attack left 58 dead and more than 500 hurt.

Rouse said the FBI has interviewed more than 400 people who had large or small connections to shooter Stephen Paddock.

"I believe we are learning as much as we possibly can about why the subject did what they did," Rouse said in The Review-Journal.

Evidence still suggests that Paddock worked alone and his motivation has not been linked to any affiliation or ideology, Rouse said.

"I believe that there is one person and one person alone to blame for what happened on 1 October, and that is Stephen Paddock," Rouse said.

About 400 different specialists were brought in to look at evidence in the case, Rouse said in the interview.

FBI investigators have about 22,000 hours of surveillance footage and video from cell phones as well as around 250,000 photos, Rouse said in The Review-Journal.

"No one, I think, saw it coming. And I think that that’s important to realize," Rouse said.

Coroner John Fudenberg said all 58 that were killed were due to gunshot wounds, according to a CNN report Friday.
