Las Vegas gunman set up a camera inside his hotel room to capture his deadly shooting rampage — and other surveillance in the hallway to alert him as cops closed in on him, according to reports by ABC News and The New York Post.

The shooter had at least one lens set up to tape himself as he fired  on thousands of unsuspecting concertgoers several hundred yards below his casino suite, The Post reported, quoting ABC News.

He also wired cameras in the hallway outside his room so he could see when police officers were approaching his room, the Daily Mail reported.

Earlier story:

The Las Vegas shooter who killed at least 59 concert-goers wired $100,000 last week to the , the home country of his girlfriend, NBC News reported Tuesday.

Authorities aren’t clear who the recipient was, but Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, was in the Philippines on Sunday, the day he gunned down hundreds attending a country music festival.

Further, ABC News reported that authorities are looking into more than 200 financial transactions – some suspicious – made by Paddock the past three years, the bulk of which are large transactions at casinos.

Casinos are required to report cash deposits or withdrawals of $10,000 or more to the Treasury Department, not necessarily suspicious for high-rollers like Paddock, who reportedly gambled large sums of money, ABC reported.

“Bottom line, this man was a gambler, but I do not believe there is sufficient evidence to show that he was under stress financially from gambling at the time this incident occurred,” Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Missouri, told ABC News.

Authorities have said they don’t believe Danley, who’s supposed to return to the U.S. on Wednesday, was involved in the massacre.

Authorities have said Paddock and Danley started dating earlier this year.

Paddock reportedly was using Danley’s identification to play video poker in the days leading up to his rampage.
