Vegas gunman had emailed about bump stocks

They also show that agents sought the email, Facebook and Instagram accounts of Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, who was in the Philippines during the October 1 shooting.

Paddock killed 58 people and injured hundreds more while firing from the Mandalay Bay Resort's 32nd floor before killing himself as police stormed the suite. "Located in the las vegas area", read one message sent to an account investigators believe was controlled by Paddock, the documents state.

Paddock is suspected of killing 58 people and injuring hundreds attending the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas on October 1 before taking his own life.

Paddock replied saying that he wanted to test several scopes and different types of ammunition. An email in response suggested trying a bump stock on the rifle with a 100-round magazine.

FBI spokeswoman Sandra Breault in Las Vegas said late Friday she could not comment about Danley or the investigation.

Investigators at the time of the filing had been unable to determine if Paddock was sending emails between two accounts both belonging to himself, or was communicating with someone else.

Authorities haven't said why they think the 64-year-old high-stakes gambler opened fire from a casino-hotel onto a concert below.

The Los Angeles Times reported that investigators were not sure why Paddock would send emails between accounts he controlled, or whether one was controlled by another person.

The girlfriend of the gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history told authorities they would probably find her fingerprints on bullets because she sometimes helped him load ammunition magazines. She told investigators her prints would likely be on the ammunition because she "occasionally participated in loading magazines".

Lombardo says the news conference will provide additional information but not "a keystone" about why Paddock did what he did.

The agent also noted: "this aspect of the investigation is still the subject of intense review".

Danely's attorney did not respond to a call or text seeking comment on Friday evening.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents knew the gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history left behind big caches of guns, ammunition and explosives when they sought warrants to search his properties and online accounts. She "corroborated much of what had been previously deduced by investigators", an agent wrote in one filing, and remained "adamant" she was unaware of Paddock's intentions.

An affidavit notes that Danely's Facebook account was deleted hours after the attack.
