Federal investigators returned to search the home of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock on Sunday, Oct. 8, while the officers who raided his hotel room door the night of the shooting gave a harrowing account of a barricaded door they had to bust through and the booby-traps they feared they’d find.
The search of Paddock’s three-bedroom house on a cul-de-sac in a retirement community in Mesquite, Nevada, was for “re-documenting and rechecking,” said local police Chief Troy Tanner, who accompanied FBI agents as they served the search warrant.
“I don’t think they are after anything specific,” Tanner told The Associated Press. “They’re going through everything and photographing everything again.”
The home was first searched Monday by Las Vegas police, who said they found 19 guns and several pounds of potentially explosive materials at the house that Paddock bought in early 2015.
The search came exactly a week after Paddock opened fire on a country music crowd, killing 58 and injuring nearly 500. (AP)
