Marilou Danley has been identified as a “person of interest” and as the companion of the unidentified shooter that left 50 people dead and over 400 injured during a shooting Sunday night at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Danley is a former “high-limit hostess” and describes herself as a “proud mom” and grandma. She is believed to be the roommate of the shooter.
Police reportedly want to talk with Danley about the shooting, as a result of her relationship with the shooter. She is described as a 4’11” Asian woman, who has since deleted her Facebook page.
Authorities recommend that you call 911 if you see Danley or her vehicle.

On Sunday night, the yet-to-be-identified gunman opened fire at the Route 91 concert crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel. At least 20 were killed and more than 100 people were injured. Officers located the suspect and killed him.
At an early press conference on Monday, October 2, authorities released the name of Danley. However, they have not yet released the name of the alleged gunman.
“We have not located her at this time and we are interested in talking to her for followup,” said Sheriff Joe Lombardo said at a press conference of Marilou Danley.
Police are also looking for two vehicles registered to the suspected gunman. Authorities are looking to track down two vehicles with Nevada plates, a Hyundai Tucson with license plate number 114B40 and a Chrysler Pacifica Touring with plate number 19D401.
Right after police released Danley’s name, scanner traffic revealed that sheriff’s department was receiving calls from people who reportedly knew this person-of-interest.
Before the shooting, a woman reportedly came up to concertgoers and said that they were going to die. It is not known who that woman is.
