"We believe he chose to take the lives he did and he had a very purposeful plan that he carried out". "Did you see any evidence of that?" Lombardo said investigators have discovered more than 200 instances of Paddock traveling through the city over an unspecified period of time, "and he has never been seen with anyone else".
"Before we were trained to form a perimeter and hope for the best", Lombardo said.
Newton said the note was found near one of the windows that Paddock had broken with a hammer, enabling him to shoot at the crowd of some 22,000 below.
Law enforcement interviews with Paddock's brother Saturday and Sunday were part of an exhaustive search through the 64-year-old's life.

The four-man team found the stairwell door to Paddock's hallway barricaded. "It looked like Swiss cheese".
Newton told Whitaker what it was like to enter the room amid the flashing lights of a fire alarm set off by an explosive used to blow through the door. What they found inside "looked like nearly a gun store", Newton said.
In the 97-page court deposition, the gunman said he regularly received alcoholic beverages and was "comped" hotel rooms most of the time, which are both standard practices by as Vegas casinos to draw major gamblers. "So many magazines. Stacks and stacks of magazines everywhere". Just in suitcases all neatly stacked against pillars, around the room, all stacked up, rifles placed all throughout.
Inside, the officers found drills and other tools, along with drill bits, phones, laptops, guns and ammunition. It was not clear when he shot himself. Wynn said butlers, waiters and massage employees knew Paddock and his girlfriend.
