LAS VEGAS (AP) – A law enforcement official has told The Associated Press that the Las Vegas shooter’s girlfriend is being questioned by FBI agents in Los Angeles.

The official says Marilou Danley was being questioned Wednesday morning at the FBI’s field office in Los Angeles and had an attorney with her.

Investigators have hoped she could shed light on what drove her boyfriend, Stephen Paddock, to fatally shoot 59 people at a country music concert from his sniper’s perch in a 32nd floor hotel suite.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation publicly.

A receptionist at the office of Los Angeles-based criminal defense attorney Matthew Lombard confirmed he was representing Danley but declined further comment.

Danely returned to the U.S. Tuesday night from the Philippines after a trip abroad that lasted weeks.
