Las Vegas Gunman May Have Eyed Lollapalooza as Target

Las Vegas Gunman May Have Eyed Lollapalooza as Target

It was not clear if he contemplated massacres at those sites.

The bases of private aircraft companies were also close to the tanks, which sit on property owned by McCarran International Airport.

Boston police Lt. Detective Mike McCarthy provided no further details.

Danley told FBI agents Wednesday she had not noticed any changes in his mental state or indications he could become violent, the federal official said.

The official stressed the information was preliminary and investigators haven't uncovered any solid evidence yet. Lombardo said some victims were counted twice in the confusion following the shooting.

Paddock killed himself after shooting into a concert crowd, killing 58 and wounding almost 500.

In the days following the horrific shooting, it was reported that Paddock, who was found dead shortly after the massacre, had been planning to attack concert-goers at the Life Is Beautiful Festival, which was headlined by Chance The Rapper. The gunman also set up multiple cameras looking out into the hallway outside the room, apparently to monitor the police response.

Paddock booked the rooms through a third party - Expedia.

The hotel confirmed the shooter reserved rooms but never stayed during there in Chicago.

The Blackstone, a 21-story hotel, has windows overlooking Grant Park, including the stages where bands performed at Lollapalooza. "It goes through your mind but I think the biggest thing is that you can trust that the organizers here will have done everything that they can to limit the possibility of something like that happening".

The dates of the reservations covered the four-day event, which drew hundreds of thousands of music fans, including former president Barack Obama's daughters Malia and Sasha, as well as Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Sheriff Lombardo said it is crucial to talk to anyone who knew gunman Paddock in the hunt for possible accomplices.

Paddock bought 1,000 rounds of the.308-caliber and.223-caliber tracer ammunition from a private buyer he met at a Phoenix gun show, a law enforcement official not authorized to comment on the investigation said on condition of anonymity.

Paddock's booking at the hotel was first reported by TMZ.

"We are constantly revising and asking fundamental questions", said Mayor Rahm Emanuel, adding that the marathon would proceed as planned.

But William Evans said Thursday he could not confirm the report and had not been briefed on the matter.

Now, USA Today reports that Paddock booked hotel rooms overlooking Lollapalooza 2017.

Investigators additionally believe he also scouted Boston's Fenway Park via a Google search.

Hotel sources who spoke to TMZ said that Paddock was "forceful" in his demands, and that hotel staff gave in.

Did Stephen Craig Paddock have an accomplice? He killed 58 people and wounded more than 500 others.
