Girlfriend of Las Vegas mass shooting suspect in Philippines at the time of the attack

An official in the Philippines says the Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend was in that country at the time of the attack.

Marilou Danley arrived in Los Angeles on a flight from Manila Tuesday night and was met by FBI agents, according to a law enforcement official. The official wasn't authorized to publicly discuss the matter and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Philippines immigration spokeswoman Antonette Mangrobang said Wednesday that Danley had arrived in the Philippines on Sept. 25 on a flight from Hong Kong. That was nearly a week before her boyfriend, Stephen Paddock, killed 59 people at a country music festival.

The Clark County Sheriff has said Danley is considered a "person of interest" in the investigation.

Mangrobang said local immigration authorities have been cooperating with U.S. officials on the investigation.
