The Day - - WORLD & NATION -

At­lanta — The FBI di­rec­tor said Thurs­day that in­ves­ti­ga­tors haven’t yet de­ter­mined a mo­tive be­hind the mass shoot­ing at a Las Ve­gas coun­try mu­sic fes­ti­val, but they’re still dig­ging. “There’s a lot of ef­fort be­ing put into un­rav­el­ing this hor­rific act,” Di­rec­tor Christo­pher Wray told re­porters fol­low­ing a rib­bon-cut­ting for the FBI’s new At­lanta build­ing. “We don’t know yet what the mo­tive is, but that’s not for lack of try­ing, and if you know any­thing about the bu­reau we don’t give up easy.” Au­thor­i­ties have said Stephen Pad­dock tar­geted the coun­try mu­sic fes­ti­val the night of Oct. 1, open­ing fire from the 32nd floor of the Man­dalay Bay ho­tel and killing 58 peo­ple.
