USA: Bomb-making materials discovered in Las Vegas shooter's car

Joseph Lombardo, Sheriff at Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (English): «Yes, we found some, I believe it was fertiliser. Is that correct, Todd? Ammonia sulfate? I can't recall the chemical compound. What is it? Ammonium nitrate within the car. We didn't have any compounds additional to that.» Sheriff at Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Joseph Lombardo, revealed that several... Еще pounds of explosive materials were discovered in the car of suspected Las Vegas shooter Stephen Craig Paddock, during a press conference in Las Vegas on Monday. Sheriff Lombardo also confirmed that the latest death toll stands at 59 people, alongside 527 injured. The ammonium nitrate, a bomb making ingredient, is part of a cache of over 38 weapons recovered from various homes and crime scenes in connection with Paddock, with one property in Nevada being prepared for a SWAT team search. Lombardo re-asserted that police are still treating Paddock's female partner, who is currently in Tokyo, as a strong «person of interest» in the case, and are in the process of bringing her back to the USA for questioning. Paddock opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest open-air country music festival crowd from his 32nd floor room at the Mandalay Bay hotel on Sunday, reportedly killing himself as a SWAT team entered the room to arrest him. With at least 59 people killed and hundreds hospitalised, the Las Vegas attack is believed to be the deadliest in modern US history.
