to 11 minutes, speaking during a briefing last night. las vegas police officials have discussed one of their own lost trying to protect people from that gunfire, take a listen. >> i want to mention that one of those brave people was las vegas metropolitan police officer charles hartfield. officer hartfield was at the 91 concert that night when shots rang out even though officer hartfield was at the concert as a civilian. he immediately took action to save lives. in that moment, he was acting as a police officer. he ultimately gave his life protecting others. officer hartfield was an 11-year member of the lvpd. leaves behind a wife and two children. i'm very grateful for his sacrifice. >> all right. so, a lot of developments overnight. joining us now from las vegas, nbc news' ron allen. ron, glad to you have back with us. obviously, one of the big pieces
2:05 am
of the investigation, marilou danley arrived late last night in las vegas. what's the words as officials try and piece this together, especially with questions around the motive? >> reporter: well, the big thing is whether or not danley provides information that explains a motive. that gets them to the head -- lets investigators get into the head of paddock to ounces what he was thinking, what he was feeling, days weeks of his life. to some reports, their relationship only went back to last year. and it was unclear whether she was a girlfriend, companion, what the extent of it was. one big question was she apparently lived with him in the house at mesquite and that's a place where there was a large arsenal of weapons found. and there were also explosive materials found. authorities are going to want to know what she knew if anything about any of that. a couple days earlier ago, in
2:06 am
the investigation that police said they believe the gunman acted alone that he did not have an accomplice. she may have been a beneficiaie of his generosity. she may have been a conspirator. we do not know. we do know that authorities said today, for example, that here at the crime scene, they're going to be here for some time to come, yet still going over the entire crime scene. they also said it's going to be several days before they're finished processing the hotel room behind me there. and the hallway area where the shoot-out happened. and where paddock had set up this arsenal of so many dozens of weapons. so the authorizes are trying to be as transparent as possible but they're also cautioning it may be some time before they can answer a lot of our questions. and, yes, this question of motive, why would somebody do this. >> as ron said, marilou danley
2:07 am
is going to be instrumental in trying to establish that. ron allen live, thanks. meanwhile, president trump visited puerto rico yesterday, he's heading to las vegas today calling the act an act of pure evil. give us a rundown of the president's schedule today? >> reporter: yeah, good morning. he will arrive here at 9:30 local time this morning. 12:30 eastern. and will be making two scheduled stops during his trip to las vegas. the first is to a hospital to be meeting with victims as well as medical professionals. and the second stop will be to meet with heroes and first responders. that first stop at the hospital will be an opportunity for president trump to show a more empathetic side of him one that he's credit sized for not showing. he drew criticism for throwing relief supplies into the crowd,
2:08 am
things like toilet paper and telling a family to have a good time. that second script shock one that he's more comfortable in. he'll be surrounded by law enforcement. he did mention las vegas before leaving for that puerto rico trip yet. take a listen. >> look, we have a tragedy. we're going to do -- and what happened in las vegas is in many ways a miracle. the police department has done an incredible job. and we'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by. >> reporter: if reporters are given a chance today, though, expect tough questions about gun control. that's a hot topic here in nevada and across the country right now. the president's big job now, consoler in chief. emotions here are still very raw. guys. >> i don't think he'll be able to brush off the conversation in regards to some change in place for gun laws that is for you're. blake mccoy in las vegas, thank
2:09 am
you. picking up on that issue of gun debate it is now heading to capitol hill after the revelation that the government possessed what are known as bump stocks, a chief accessory that increases the rate of fire. senators grappled with the potential for action while speaking with nbc news' hallie jackson. >> should congress be reconsidering whether bump stocks are legalal or not? >> yeah, i'm not an expert on bump stocks but all things that make us safer, keep me in. so, you think now is the time to have this policy debate? >> yeah, i think so. >> i do not think that the united states congress can legislate a way either. >> can you make it harder for evil to perpetrate its actions? >> i don't think that the united states congress can legislate sanity. >> first off, yeah, let's get the facts, figure what he used. how he got access to those types
2:10 am
of weapons. bump stocks, legally converted weapons that turn them into -- you know, turn semi-automatic weapons into virtually automatic weapons, that's something that i think we'll take a look at. >> and another key republican senator said he's open to legislation on guns. pennsylvania's pat toomey who co-sponsored extended background checks on guns, said he continues to look for opportunities to move forward with it. on the white house lawn yesterday, president trump we'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by. but his former chief strategist said that the president would be playing with fire. asked if he could envision the president pivoting to the left. steve bannon with axios quote, end of everything and softening. after two weeks after hurricane maria struck puerto rico president trump visited the
2:11 am
devastated island after a war of words with the mayor of san juan. with power still out to 93% of the island, the president's trip came amid accusation that the administration did not respond quickly enough. during the four-hour visit, president trump passing out paper towels to residents in need. in a news conference, he praised the federal response to hurricane maria, comparing it to hurricane katrina. >> if you look at a real catastrophe like katrina. and you look at the tremendous -- hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died, what is your death count at this moment? >> 16. >> 16 people certified. 16 people versus in the thousands. you can be very proud. >> so, after that news conference, the governor of puerto rico later announced that the death toll from hurricane maria had risen to 34. during his visit, president trump also weighed in on the
2:12 am
cost of puerto rico's recovery later adding that the island's debt may need to be, quote, wiped out. >> now, i hate to tell you, puerto rico, but you've thrown our budget a little out of whack. because we've spent a lot of money on puerto rico and we've saved a lot of lives. >> we have to look at the whole debt structure. you know, they owe a lot of money to your friends on wall street. we're going it to have to wipe that out. you can say good-bye to that. i don't know good it's goldman sachs or whoever it is you can say good-bye to that. >> president trump met briefly with the mayor of san juan after a series of tweets over the weekend. >> sir, i don't want to upset you [ inaudible ]. >> thank you, everybody. >> president ended up leaving more than an hour ahead of schedule. and president trump and his national security team appear to
2:13 am
be on opposite ends when it comes to the iran nuclear agreement. trump has called the deal quote, an embarrassment end quote. and however appearing before the defense services committee, general mattis and general dunford offered a different view. >> the agreement right now, what i testified to last week is, that iran was not in material breach of the agreement. and i do believe the agreement to date has delayed the development of a nuclear capability by iran. >> do you believe it's within our national security interest at the present time to remain in the jcpoa? that's a yes or no question. >> yes, senator, i do. the point i would make is, if we can confirm that iran is living by the agreement, if we can determine that this is in our best interest, then, clearly, we
2:14 am
should stay with it. i believe at this point in time, absent indications to the contrary, it is something the president should consider staying with. it's still under consideration in the executive branch. and i -- and a decision has not been made. >> and last week, iran said that if the u.s. with draws it also has the option of doing so, president trump has until october 15th to decide whether to recertify that iran is some compliance with the landmark accord. all right, still ahead, president of the united states trump reportedly weighs changes to the illegal immigration system. as a possible deal with da qaa democrats. and continued coverage of the massacre we'll get a live report in just a few minutes and we're going to have a full check of the forecast coming up. stay with us. kevin, meet your father.

2:21 am
possibility for intensification. and in florida, the rough conditions and squally weather. we'll know more, guys, in about two or three days. the key is -- its name would be nate, once it does get a name, but we want it to be very weak. we don't want it to be like all the other storms this season that seemed to get intense very quickly. still ahead, the nfl doing its part to help those affected by sunday night's tragedy in las vegas. and a wild win in the bronx as the mlb playoffs get under way. sports is next, everyone. have. and at our factory in boston, 1,200 workers are starting their day building on over a hundred years of heritage, craftsmanship and innovation. today we're bringing you america's number one shave at lower prices every day. putting money back in the pockets of millions of americans. as one of those workers, i'm proud to bring you gillette quality for less, because nobody can beat the men and women of gillette. gillette - the best a man can get.

2:30 am
welcome back, everybody. i'm yasmin vossoughian alongside ayman mohyeldin and louis burgdorf. it is the bottom of the hour. let's start with the morning's top story. >> we are learning new details into the investigation into the las vegas shooting and the carnage that a gunman unleashed on an unsuspecting crowd of concertgoers. officials say they have recovered a total of 47 firearms from three different locations including a hotel room at the mandalay bay hotel that stephen paddock used to stage his massacre and along with a location referred to by investigators as verde. they had 12 bump stocks in the holt room which would enable him to fire very much like a machine gun would. >> meanwhile, police are showing photos of the aftermath of the
2:31 am
raid and slammed the german newspaper which published them. the images showed a busted down door along with bullet holes southwest a single weapon left on the floor on a gun stand. the department has released a three-minute video footage at the scene, you can hear gunfire continuously raining down as officers scramble to seek cover and usher civilians to safety. officials reveal that paddock fired a weapon on and off for nine to 11 minutes. let's go to las vegas with nbc news' ron allen joining us. we do understand the shooter's girlfriend arriving back in the united states. we have footage, a little bit of her being escorted out of the airport. do we know so far how long she's going to be questioned, what the authorities learned from her and what they expect to glean from this interview? >> reporter: we don't know what they know. we know they've been in touch with her, and they've been
2:32 am
talking to her. i don't know whether the fbi escorted her or met her at the airport. but they've already started the conversation. and what we believe they're hoping to find out is what paddock was thinking. what he was into during the final days and weeks and perhaps months of his life. because this woman apparently had a fairly close, very close relationship with him. and she, perhaps, more than anyone, would have some insight into what was going on. what was he stressed out about. what was he angry about. what was he trying to do. she also seems to have been the beneficiary of a lot of money from him. $100,000 sent to the philippines, her native land where there are reports that the money was for family. for her to buy a home. or build a home. and there are also some reports in the relationship that goes back to last year, so it may not be that deep. but the profile that we're getting of paddock of a very
2:33 am
wealthy, high roller, gambler, eccentric guy, who was on a rampage. so, that's what authorities, i would think, are hoping they can find out from this woman. also, remember, we also believed that they lived together for some time. and lived in a house where there was a fairly large arsenal of weapons and explosive tears. what did she know about that? at this point, again, authorities have said that they believe he acted alone. but they're ruling out anything with her at this point, as far as we know. >> certainly, a lot of questions in regards to the timing of their relationship and how much she knows. but a lot of people out there hoping that she is the key to this whole thing to answer some questions for, of course, so many of the victims affected by this. nbc's ron allen, thank you. mean windchill, president trump heads to las vegas, many eager to see the optics he'll display after yesterday's rift to puerto rico.
2:34 am
joining us now is nbc's blake mccoy. blake, obviously questions from the president's trip to puerto rico yesterday. what can we expect from the president there today? >> reporter: ayman, good morning. the president's big job today as it was yesterday in puerto rico is consoler in chief. the president will land here in las vegas at 9:30 local time, 12:30 eastern. he'll be make two stops. the first is to a hospital where he'll be meeting with victims and some medical professionals. the second stop will be to meet with first responders and some of the heroes. it's at that first stop that the president will have an opportunity to flip the script, if you will and show a more empathetic side that he was criticized for not showing yesterday. the president if you'll recall yesterday was throwing relief supplies into the crowd. treating it more like a rally than the somber event that it was supposed to be. the president's visit here in las vegas is fairly loose.
2:35 am
he'll be on the ground for 3 1/2 hours. it does leave wiggle room for the president if she decides to stop and spend more times at certain locations. there are more podium or press stands but we do expect a press gaggle at some point. if he does take questions expect gun control to be a hot topic. the president said he doesn't want to talk about that, but sometimes in the past, he can't help himself, guys. >> blake mccoy, thanks. senate democrats are urging their republican colleagues to join them in reeel creating the nation's gun laws specifically on laws that modify semi-automatic rifles to mimic an automatic rate of fire like the bump stock found in the gunman's hotel room. senator s mccaskey and nelson hd this to say. >> hunting is a big deal in ply
