After the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, concertgoers and family members of those who attended a country music festival in Las Vegas that ended in death for dozens of people sought Monday to recover the belongings left behind in panic.

Lawn chairs, baby strollers, cowboy hats, boots and thousands of other items were discarded as 22,000 people fled the concert venue while bullets flew from a room at Mandalay Bay hotel casino across Las Vegas Boulevard.

People seeking their items Monday walked in quietly to the convention center hall, where an assistance center has been set up.

In a steady stream, people were looking for purses, wallets and cellphones. One person searched for a treasured wedding bracelet.

The somber mood at the hall was occasionally deepened by weeping.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo says the shooter at a Las Vegas concert who killed 58 people fired at fuel tanks near the Mandalay Bay Hotel from which he was shooting.

Lombardo also says Stephen Paddock had personal protection equipment in his room.

Lombardo says he think Paddock shot at the tanks to create a diversion.

Mandalay Bay hotel-casino security guard Jesus Campos told investigators that Paddock was drilling to an adjacent wall when he walked up to Paddock's room.

Lombardo says Paddock shot at Campos before he fired into the crowd of 22,000 concertgoers at the country music concert.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo says that investigators still have not pinpointed the shooter's motive behind his decision to fire on a concert crowd in Las Vegas on Oct. 1 and kill 58 people.

Lombardo said at a news conference that there's no evidence Stephen Craig Paddock was motivated by ideology and there's no evidence there was another shooter.

Lombardo says it's clear Paddock was determined to shoot at the crowd.

The sheriff says investigators are talking to Paddock's brother Eric and Marilou Danley, his girlfriend, to get insight into Paddock.
