The one person who may have a clue as to why Stephen Paddock
decided to kill 58 people
at a country music festival will soon be talking with investigators.
, Paddock’s girlfriend, just flew in from the Philippines and landed in Los Angeles. She was accompanied by FBI agents and will be questioned by Las Vegas police.
We’ve also gotten more details about the shooting itself through
police body-cam footage
, which captures the rapid staccato of the gunfire. The gunman
continuously fired for about 10 minutes
. Photos from
Paddock’s hotel suite at Mandalay Bay
were also published, showing guns, ammunition and what appears to be a body on the floor.
The stories of how people pulled together to help each other during Sunday night’s chaos are starting to emerge. Like the shooting survivor who
held a stranger’s hand for hours
after he died at her side. Or the Iraq war vet
who took a stranger’s truck
to get the wounded to a hospital.
We’ve profiled some of those lost
to the shooting.
President Trump visits Las Vegas later today. 2. Puerto Rico
President Trump’s trip to Puerto Rico was his second chance, after
his well-received address
on the Las Vegas shooting, to fill the role of consoler-in-chief. It didn’t go so well. During a briefing with local officials on recovery efforts, Trump
seemed to downplay the devastation
Hurricane Maria brought to the US territory and pumped up praise for his administration. He compared Puerto Rico’s death toll to “
a real catastrophe
, like Katrina.” No, really. Later, he met with storm survivors and helped distribute supplies, at one point
lobbing paper towel rolls like jump shots
. CNN’s Chris Cillizza says the President
just doesn’t have the empathy gene
. Before leaving the island, Trump, in an interview with Fox News, floated the idea of
wiping out Puerto Rico’s massive debt
3. Facebook and Russia
A number of Russian-linked Facebook ads
specifically targeted Michigan and Wisconsin
, two states crucial to Donald Trump’s victory last November, according to four sources with direct knowledge of the situation. Some of the Russian ads appeared
highly sophisticated in their targeting of key demographic groups
in areas of the states that turned out to be pivotal, two of the sources said. The ads employed a series of divisive messages aimed at
breaking through the clutter of campaign ads
online, including promoting anti-Muslim messages, sources said.
The King of Spain is straight-up ticked off at leaders in Catalonia over the
region’s independence referendum
. In a rare TV address, King Felipe said the referendum’s organizers “and their irresponsible attitude”
had jeopardized Spain’s stability
. He did not, however, mention the
violence that occurred
when Spanish police tried to forcibly remove people from the polls. Those clashes left nearly 900 people injured. The King’s tough talk must be falling on deaf ears though, because Catalonia’s leader told the BBC that the
region could declare independence
as early as the end of this week.
Uber had already dumped founder Travis Kalanick as CEO, but that apparently wasn’t enough. Now, the embattled ride-share company is
, who remains on Uber’s board, of even more power. It did that by adding six more members to its 11-person board,
reducing Kalanick’s influence
. Uber also now requires the board to OK a new leader by a two-thirds vote, making it
much harder for Kalanick to retake his role as CEO
include lawsuits, sexism allegations and essentially being
kicked out of London
