Las Vegas Police: ‘No Evidence’ of Political or ‘Radical Ideologies’ Motivating Shooter

Las Vegas police, while saying they’re still stumped on the motive behind Sunday night’s massacre at a country music festival, said today that they haven’t found any evidence to indicate Stephen Paddock had political or “radical ideologies” that motivated the attack.

Undersheriff Kevin McMahill told CNN this evening that authorities also haven’t determined what Paddock intended to do with his explosives-stocked car at the Mandalay Bay hotel, which included 1,600 rounds of ammunition as well as ready-to-use tannerite and two mixer chemicals, ammonium nitrate and aluminum chloride.
