UPDATE from CNN:October 2, 2017 1:30pm EDT
Shooter's dad was a bank robber on the FBI most wanted list
From CNN's Evan Perez, Jay Shaylor, John Couwels and David Shortell
Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s father was previously on the FBI’s most wanted list, the FBI confirms.
The FBI lists Benjamin Hoskins Paddock as on the FBI’s most wanted list from June 10, 1969 until May 5, 1977. A most wanted poster lists multiple aliases for Paddock as well.
Eric Paddock, Stephen Paddock's brother, told CNN that their father died a few years ago. Eric Paddock says he was born while his father was on the run.
An FBI most wanted poster from 1969 says Paddock was convicted of bank robbery, automobile larceny, and “confidence game.” The poster calls him “psychopathic” and says he “has carried firearms in commission of bank robberies,” and that he “reportedly has suicidal tendencies and should be considered armed and very dangerous.”

The gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, is dead. He was not known to authorities.
It happened during a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip. The shooter fired from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel.

PRESS RELEASE BY ROBERT CONAWAY
October I ,2017
First, the panel is closed-result the good ole boys get some yap time.
Second ,what a joke panel [San Bernardino County District Attorney Mike Ramos, Sheriff John McMahon, 1st District Supervisor Robert Lovingood, Victor Valley College Trustee Joseph W. Brady, Daily Press Interim Publisher Steve Hunt, Apple Valley Mayor Scott Nassif, Adelanto Mayor Richard Kerr, Hesperia Mayor Paul Russ and Barstow City Councilman Rich Harpole - most of the people has careers in law enforcement]. You are asking incumbents (if there is a true rise in crime, or is it previously under-reported crime, reporting conduct previously not thought to be "criminal" or is it higher numbers created by over reaching prosecution tactics) to figure out the solutions--really? If it was a matter of discussion, why haven't the panelists done something in the yrs they have been in office.
Third, what is SHOCKING, is the Hispanic and African American community leaders were not invited. no one from the communities of faith who have churches in those communities impacted nor anyone from the other side of the political spectrum ( e.g. democratic) to ask their input. Think of how dumb that is-ask the people under whom the alleged problem has grown, how it got out of control? That's like asking the fox for why the chickens have been eaten.
Fourth, maybe the problem is that this '·panel'' is closed - the public is not invited to be present. What are these people scared of?
