The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says Thursday night on Twitter that the red Hyundai Tuscan was found after police executed a search warrant at a home in Reno owned by the shooter, Stephen Paddock.
Unlike so many other perpetrators of deadly mass shootings before him, Paddock left behind no suicide note, no manifesto, no recordings and no messages on social media pointing to his intent, according to police.

Sources claim that Paddock received a guaranteed view room, against company policy. Authorities told The Daily Beast that the 64-year-old rented out multiple condos overlooking the festival, which was headlined by Chance the Rapper, Lorde and Wiz Khalifa.
Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters Wednesday that he didn't know what Stephen Paddock was planning with the explosives, if anything.
Paddock, the 64-year-old gambler and real estate investor, rained down about 1,600 rounds of ammo from the 32th floor suite of Mandalay Bay hotel into a crowd of more than 22,000 people attending Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival Sunday night, killing 58 concertgoers and injuring almost 500.
Minutes after the shooting began, a hotel security guard showed up outside his suite and Paddock shot him in the leg.More news: Grant Shapps: Tories within rights to urge May to go
Stephen Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, told FBI. investigators he had mental health issues and would sometimes lie in bed crying out, "Oh, my God!"
Lombardo also revealed that Paddock had an "escape plan".
Police found Stephen Paddock to be a man with no criminal record, but he had about 40 rifles in his possession in several locations. "If you have factual information, it would be helpful to us", he said to the larger public watching the briefing on TV.More news: Bangladesh backs India's stand on Rohingya issue: Foreign minister Haque
