According to the police documents another witness said he may have encountered Paddock the night before the shooting. Danley was in the Philippines at the time of the shooting, and police said they don't think she was involved. Law enforcement refused Wednesday to provide any additional information including refusing to say whether the reports were credible.

The woman says she climbed a fence and sprinted toward a stage where she saw people taking cover.

"Sometimes sacrifices have to be made". She told police that Paddock seemed angry about the 1990s standoffs at Waco, Texas, and Ruby Ridge in Idaho.

He described the man who authorities say killed 58 people and injured hundreds as an "odd guy" who liked to talk about gambling and traveling, and who once called screaming to complain that it took 20 minutes for his luggage to be brought to his room.

The scheduled release of documents comes more than seven months after a gunman opened fire October 1 from a casino high-rise into a concert crowd of 22,000 people at an open-air venue on the Las Vegas Strip.

One woman said she pleaded with a friend to get up, but her friend wasn't moving and her lips had turned blue. Her friend was shot.

A stagehand made a run for his pickup truck when he was suddenly surrounded by people begging for a ride away from the scene.

"On the third round of shots is when". She had to jump over the dead body of a security guard on her way before crawling under a stage only a few feet high.

"He keep on staring at me", the housekeeper said, reporting that Paddock was on his computer at the time but that she did not see the screen. He also specifically apologized for the release of documents he claimed would "further traumatize a wounded community".

Paddock, who killed himself, acted alone, police have said. He reportedly said that Paddock had ranted against the government, saying he believed the government intended on confiscating guns from American citizens.

Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak, who shared the release of public information with Lombardo and FBI Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse after the shooting, told the AP on Wednesday he had been assured that no motive has been identified.

Sisolak said he hadn't heard of the man's account and he could not say whether it was credible.

Two weeks ago, the department released body camera footage of police officers entering and combing through gunman Stephen Paddock's hotel room at the Mandalay Bay resort. The release came after news organizations investigating police, emergency responders' and hotel employees' response to the attack sued for the release of videos, 911 recordings, evidence logs and interviews.

The department has not provided all the materials it compiled.
