The brother of the man who police say killed at least 59 people and injured about 527 said his family is "dumbfounded" by details of the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

The Filipina was identified as Marilou Danley who was initially reported as a companion of Stephen Paddock, who went on a shooting spree in Las Vegas on Sunday, local time.

THE Filipina who was linked to the gunman in the mass shooting at a Las Vegas strip was no longer a person of interest in the ongoing United States police investigation, a spokesman for the Department of Foreign Affairs said on Tuesday.

American authorities said she was out of the country at the time retired accountant Paddock, 64, unleashed his reign of terror on concert-goers from a hotel window.

New details are emerging about the accused mass shooting suspect Stephen Paddock.

A little earlier, and the sheriff of Las Vegas Joe Lombardo, however, had explained that there was not, to his knowledge, the link between the shooter and the AR.

"This is such a nice peaceful community to hear that there could be any kind of person that could do such a heinous crime, it's hard to believe", said former neighbor Rebecca Carver who said she was told Stephen had bought the home as an investment property.

"He was my brother and it's like an asteroid fell out of the sky", Eric Paddock said. Eric Paddock still can't wrap his head around why his brother - who publicly held no political or religious affiliation - would commit mass murder.

"I didn't know him".

In 1968, Benjamin Hoskins Paddock escaped federal prison in Texas, which landed him on the FBI's most wanted list, NBC News reported.

Authorities believe the shooter had acted alone when he opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino at a large crowd of concertgoers across the street, but are still scratching their heads in figuring out a motive.

"I mean there's just nothing", said Eric.

ISIS did claim responsibility for the attack, but officials have found no connections between the terrorist group and Paddock.
