In addition to the body camera video, LVMPD Undersheriff Kevin McMahill explained the timeline for the Sunday night shooting to walk through law enforcement officers' response time.

McMahill said law enforcement first received the call around 10:08 p.m. He estimated that Paddock fired on the crowd for 9-11 minutes, stopping at 10:19. SWAT entered shortly after that.

Officers found two cameras in the hallway and one in the peephole of the hotel room on the 32nd floor, which McMahill said they believe Paddock used the cameras to see when law enforcement would approach him.

He also confirmed the leaked crime scene photos were real, and the department is conducted an internal investigation to find the source of the leak.

In an earlier news conference, Sheriff Joe Lombardo said the scene of the Route 91 Harvest Festival where at least 59 people died and more than 520 were injured remains an active crime scene. McMahill said this will likely be an active scene for a few more days.

Lombardo said five handguns, two shotguns, and a plethora of ammunition were found at a Reno residence where Stephen Paddock lived. In all, three search warrants were served for three locations; the hotel room, Paddock's Mesquite residence, and the one in Reno.

Special Agent Jill Schneider said they recovered a total of 47 firearms and 12 bump stocks from three locations connected to the shooting.

Schneider said the shooter purchased handguns, rifles and shotguns in three different states.

The LVMPD said the death total is 59 people; 58 shooting victims and the shooter.

While they are working to uncover the motive behind the horrific attack, McMahill said they have not ruled out terrorism as a motive.

Police have made contact and received information from Paddock's girlfriend in the Philippines but cannot confirm what was said. Paddock's girlfriend Marilou Danley is considered a "person of interest."

Officials expect to have all 59 victims identified by the end of the night, and all next of kin notified by the morning.
