Did the Las Vegas shooter plan a different attack?
Police say Stephen Paddock may have considered attacking another music festival prior to the Sunday night shooting in Las Vegas . FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said he was surprised Paddock had provided so few clues, and that has proved challenging.

Witnesses also said that cops later tried to get her out of the vehicle.

Garcia said when he saw the woman's face, she had a wild, crazed expression.

The collision happened on a sidewalk along Northeast 163rd Street and 22nd Avenue.

The Miami Beach police force changed its policies in 2014 to prohibit officers from shooting at a moving auto, unless someone inside that vehicle brandishes a weapon or shoots first.
