Police say they recovered an undisclosed amount of Tannerite from Paddock’s home in Mesquite, and 50 pounds from his car parked at Mandalay Bay. Tannerite was apparently used in a September 2016 bombing that injured 31 in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood.

Metropolitan Police Department announced the car was found while executing the search warrant at Stephen Paddock’s Reno house. Officers asked for help locating the vehicle after Paddock killed 58 and injured almost 500.
3. People gathered at the iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign last night to honor the victims of Sunday’s mass shooting. Greg Zanis, a retired carpenter from Chicago, drove to Las Vegas to set up 58 crosses behind the sign, one for each victim killed. Zanis has made more that 20,000 crosses over the past two decades, supplying crosses after the Columbine, Sandy Hook and Orlando nightclub shootings. He plans to keep the crosses up for 40 days, before giving them to the families of the victims.
