Lombardo: No charges against Paddock's girlfriend, preliminary report released
UPDATE: Sherriff Joe Lombardo told the public he is confident that there was only one shooter on 1 October. There will be no charges filed against Stephen Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley.
Lombardo says Paddock had extensive search history on his computer for SWAT and tactical behavior, and child pornography. Lombardo says a possible motive for shooting still involves the loss of “significant amount of wealth” he lost prior to the shooting.
The Sheriff indicated there is one other person (not a shooter) under investigation and charges could be coming within the next 60 days. A comprehensive report will not be released until the end of the year.

LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — On Friday, the public hopes to find out more about the events of 1 October.
Media outlets from around the world will soon be turning their eyes and ears towards the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department headquarters. Sheriff Joe Lombardo will be speaking on the horrific events on October 1, 2017.
58 people were killed when Stephen Paddock fired hundreds of bullets into the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.
This will be the first time Sheriff Lombardo has spoken about the events in more than 3 months. We haven't heard from him about the tragedy since October 13.
Media outlets from throughout the country, including News 3, are involved in a lawsuit with LVMPD over sealed documents from the investigation. The lawsuit argues the investigation should be public since police say the shooter who acted as a quote "lone wolf" is dead.
Earlier this week, an attorney representing LVMPD told a judge that charges may be pending -- a strong implication that the shooter may not have acted totally alone, or that his plans were unknown.
By the end of next week, a judge is expected to announce a decision on whether to unseal documents related to LVMPD’s investigation of the shooting.
Sheriff Lombardo is expected to talk at 10 a.m.
News 3 will air the press conference live, and will stream it on News3LV.com.
