RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
The FBI and Reno police on Monday searched a home in northwest Reno owned by a Stephen Paddock, the name of the suspect in the mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip.
The property is located at 1735 Del Webb Parkway in the Somersett neighborhood, where police blocked off the road. The FBI arrived at around 9:15 a.m. and began questioning neighbors.
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said at a press conference at about 3 p.m. Monday that SWAT units were standing by and "getting ready to hit the house in Northern Nevada."
Lombardo included the Northern Nevada property as one of multiple scenes still being investigated as of Monday afternoon.
Authorities, including several SWAT members and federal agents, could be seen entering the home around 5:10 p.m. Monday, though several vehicles appeared to be leaving the scene just a few minutes later.
Thomas Robinson, deputy chief of the Reno Police Department, said in an email that the department has been asked to provide "assistance in certain aspects of the Las Vegas shooting investigation.
"In response to these requests, the Reno Police Department has provided uniformed officers, detectives and tactical support to the local office of the FBI to assist them in their investigative activities," Robinson said, directing inquiries to the FBI.
Whether the house contained any evidence or clues remains unclear. A spokeswoman for the FBI said she could not release any details on the investigation, saying only that it was ongoing.
The house was not discussed during a media briefing held by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Monday night.
