FBI agents returned to a house in Reno owned by Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock after local police determined someone had broken into the home over the weekend.

Reno police officer Tim Broadway confirmed today that police were called to the house early Sunday by a neighbor who noticed a light on inside the home in an upscale community on the edge of the Sierra foothills along U.S. Interstate 80.

Broadway says the officers discovered "someone had broken into the house" and immediately contacted the FBI. He says it's not clear how the person or persons gained entry or whether anything was taken.

Broadway says they don't have any suspects or descriptions of possible suspects. He told The Associated Press, "Nobody really saw anything, just a light was on with nobody in the residence."

He says local police are working in conjunction with the FBI to make sure no one else enters the home.
