The non-stop flight arrived as scheduled at about 7:30 p.m. local time on Tuesday (0230 GMT Wednesday) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), according to the airline tracking website FlightAware.com and passengers from the flight.

The gunman had reportedly wired US$100,000 to the Philippines in the days before the massacre.

The New York Times has reported that the girlfriend of the Las Vegas gunman, Marilou Danley, has arrived back in the US. NBC reports that it is yet to be determined what Paddock intended the money to be used for; whether he meant for her to use the money to take care of herself, her family, or for some other objective remains to be seen.

Reports said that Danley and Paddock had been sharing the same address since January 2017, as they were roommates in Mesquite, Nevada.

"I know that she doesn't know anything as well like us", one of the sisters, who chose to remain anonymous, said. "She sends cookies to my mom".

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo named the 62-year-old as a "person of interest" shortly after the mass shooting Sunday night.

"He loved her. He doted on her", the shooter's brother, Eric Paddock said. Police say Paddock shot himself before a SWAT team broke down the door to the hotel suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

"I know that she don't know anything as well like us". She didn't have any more immediate information.

"She didn't even know that she was going to the Philippines until Steve said "Marilou, I found you a cheap ticket to the Philippines", they said.

Paddock transferred $100,000 to the Philippines in the days before the shooting, a US official briefed by law enforcement but not authorized to speak publicly because of the continuing investigation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Susan Page, a neighbor of the couple when they lived in Reno, described Paddock and Danley as "closet people" who "kept to themselves", per the Gazette-Journal.

"That's because your name is Danley or anything, that you happen to know anything about this or be affiliated with it and that you would want anything like this to happen to anyone is a bad thing", his daughter said.
