Law enforcement officials say Stephen Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines before he opened fire on a country music festival crowd Sunday in the worst mass shooting in modern USA history.

Marilou Danley, 62, is believed to be the partner of gunman Stephen Paddock, 64, who has been identified as the gunman who opened fire on helpless country music festivalgoers.

She does not appear to have been involved in the shooting and was in the Philippines when the shooting took place, authorities said.

The shooter's brother, Eric Paddock, told NBC that his brother Stephen was "just a guy" who never shown violent tendencies. On Dec. 31, 1968, Paddock, who admitted trying to sneak out of a Las Vegas jail after his arrest, broke free from a federal prison in La Luna, Texas. "There's absolutely no sense, no reason he did this", said Eric.
