The gunman in the mass shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas is believed to be a grandfather who lived in a remote desert home.

As the investigation into the deadly Las Vegas shooting attack continues, police investigators hope to gain some insight into the motives of the shooter, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, from his girlfriend Marilou Danley, who was in the Philippines at the time of the attack.

He arrived at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino four days before the attack with at least 10 suitcases filled with guns, according to police.

Paddock had booked room 32135, described by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Joseph Lombardo as one large suite with uninterrupted views of the Las Vegas Strip.

The mass murderer had no criminal record but his father Benjamin Paddock was once one of the most wanted criminals in the US.

Lombardo initially said that 16 weapons were found in Paddock's hotel room, where he had been staying since Sept. 28.

Richard Vasquez, a former chief of firearms technology for the ATF, said "without a doubt it was automatic fire", but it's hard to determine any more specifics about the weapons used because the videos are shot from so far away and there are lots of gunshot echoes.

They said the attack, the deadliest mass shooting in US history, was carried out by a "soldier" of the caliphate and was done "in response to calls to target coalition countries".

Witnesses said the hail of bullets continued for 15 minutes or longer.

Police found in the gunman's car several kilos of ammonium nitrate, a substance used in the manufacture of explosives.

Crime scene around the Mandalay Bay hotel is still active, the sheriff added.

David Famiglietti of the New Frontier Armory told NBC News that Paddock bought a rifle and a shotgun in spring.

FBI Special Agent Aaron Rouse told a news conference: "We have determined at this point no connection to an international terrorist organisation". It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night'. "We have to establish what his motivation is first".

Several officers from California were attending the outdoor Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on Sunday when a gunman opened fire.

SWAT teams broke into the room and found him dead, with police saying they believe he killed himself. "But the only way we are really going to change the trajectory that the world seems to be heading for is to change our consciousness!" The first report of the shooting came at 10:08 p.m. Sunday.
