What was his motive?

There was a suggestion by police early on in their announcements that "they have evidence to believe that Steven may have been radicalized" however LVMPD later clarified that this was not the case. Some conspiracy theorists believe the FBI was putting pressure on the LVMPD to denounce any connection to ISIS, so as not to cause widespread panic. People are also sceptical of his brother, who appeared to show no remorse when interviewed outside his residence. It's a matter of time before the truth comes out but for now we don't have any real evidence that suggests this is anything more than a narcissistic, violent, evil individual.
