Stephen Paddock, the suspect in the Las Vegas shooting rented a room via AirBnb at a different Las Vegas hotel than the one he shot from, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said at a press conference on Wednesday night.


Lombardo said, “It’s important for you to understand, the rooms were not rented by the Ogden, it was done through AirBnb by a private owner unknown to the Ogden. So, we have very great cooperation from the owners of  ‘Life Is Beautiful,’ and the Ogden and their cooperation. Okay, while we have already spoken many people had contact with Stephen Paddock at hotels and places he frequented in, we still have more interviews to conduct.”

Lombardo is referring to the Life is Beautiful festival that occurred the weekend before the shooting took place, where Paddock rented a room overlooking the festival, but did not commit any violence.
