Court documents released Friday revealed that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents knew Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock had caches of guns, ammunition and explosives when they sought warrants to search his properties and online accounts.

Las Vegas police Officer Aden Ocampo Gomez and Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Sandra Breault said Friday that they had no update about Paddock's motive. "Located in the las vegas area", reads one email.

The emails discussing bump stocks appeared to be sent between two accounts on July 6, both of which were run by Paddock, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The documents also reveal that Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, had personally handled the stockpile of ammunition found in his home.

In the court documents, which detail some of the early days of the investigation, 64-year-old gunman Stephen Paddock is described as spending significant time amassing his weapons and stockpiling ammunition while also seeking "to thwart the eventual law enforcement investigation" into the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.

An FBI agent tells a judge in warrant documents made public Friday that Marilou Danley wasn't arrested when she returned to the USA from the Philippines days after the October 1 shooting, and that she was cooperating with investigators.

The unsealed documents do not provide a motive for the killings, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Paddock outside the room. and then killed himself before police arrived. Investigators were only able to search one but could not unlock the others. She was out of the country when the attack happened, and Danley said after the shooting that she was in the Philippines at the time because Paddock had bought her a ticket to visit family.

Paddock unleashed a rain of bullets into a crowd at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay.

However, the agent said authorities hadn't ruled her out as a person of interest.

"Try an ar before u buy". The FBI special agent who signed the affidavit argued that since only that phone was locked, any information related to a criminal conspiracy would be found on it.

After the shooting, police found 19 guns and several pounds of potentially explosive materials at Paddock's three-bedroom house in a retirement community in the city of Mesquite.

"Investigators have been unable to figure out why Stephen Paddock would be exchanging messages related to weapons that were utilized in the attack between two of his email accounts".

"While investigators obtained a DNA buccal swab sample from Danley", one search warrant request stated, "she spontaneously stated that her fingerprints would likely be found on Paddock's ammunition because she occasionally participated in loading magazines".

Ten pages of the search warrant documents remained sealed ahead of a Nevada state court hearing scheduled for Tuesday.
