An attorney for the Las Vegas shooter’s girlfriend says she had no knowledge of any plans by him to commit a massacre.

Marilou Danley’s lawyer said Wednesday she plans to co-operate fully with the investigation of her boyfriend Stephen Paddock.

Defence attorney Matthew Lombard spoke in Los Angeles after Danley met with FBI agents to discuss Sunday’s carnage on the Las Vegas strip.

She returned to the U.S. Tuesday night from the Philippines, where she was visiting family.

While she was there, Paddock, a high-stakes gambler, sent her $100,000.

Lombard says she was not expecting the money and worried that he was breaking up with her.
