Stephen Paddock, 64, had expressed outrage about what he believed was a plot by the federal government to disarm American citizens, according to newly released police documents.

The Wynn Resorts host, identified only by the initials K.M., said he served Paddock for six years until August 2017. She also said she thought it odd he had more than five pieces of luggage in the room.

One woman interviewed by police said she sat in the booth of a diner eating dinner a few days before the shooting and overheard a man in the next booth she subsequently recognized as Paddock.

As she crouched down, a massive spraying of bullets rained down and the unidentified woman thought the gunfire was coming from helicopters above. They also said publishing the documents risked divulging police investigative tactics.

Paddock killed himself in a hotel room near the shooting as authorities closed in on him about an hour after the attack.
