Las Vegas Shooter Booked Room At Hotel Overlooking Lollapalooza, As Well

Las Vegas Gunman May Have Planned Earlier Attack On Fest Headlined By Lorde

The Las Vegas gunman who carried out the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history booked hotel rooms overlooking the Chicago music festival Lollapalooza, USA Today and ABC News report. Lollapalooza occurred from August 3 through 6 in Grand Park, and was attended by Malia Obama, the daughter of former President Barack Obama.

Officials say the Las Vegas shooter rented a room in downtown around the same time as an alternative music festival held September 22-24. He reportedly never showed up for his reservation.

In a statement, the Chicago police said they were working in concert with their "federal partners" and other law enforcement to work ensure the safety of concert-goers.

The wealthy real estate investor opened fire Sunday from his multistory perch onto the crowd below, killing 58 people and injuring nearly 400.

A person who has seen Mandalay Bay hotel records that have been turned over to investigators said Wednesday they show Stephen Paddock asked for the two-room suite on the 32nd floor when he checked in last Thursday.

The amount of festivals held near high-rise hotels and office buildings is not exclusive to Las Vegas and Chicago, and includes multiple festivals nationwide.

He has lessons for himself, too. "The eventual target is to secure progression to the next stage while taking one game at a time". The Colombians went in search of an equaliser after the break, with their best chance falling to substitute Deiber Caicedo.

Weinreich said Paddock's girlfriend Marilou Danley once worked at the casino and initially got on Paddock's good side by leading him to a machine where someone had lost tens of thousands of dollars.

Although investigators believe the digital and physical trail Paddock has left in his wake is crucial to resolving his motive for the attack, the official cautioned that the information recovered - including his interests in locations beyond Las Vegas - have so far not led authorities to any firm conclusions. Nineteen more guns were found at Paddock's Mesquite home and seven at his Reno house.

A former executive casino host at the Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa in Reno said Paddock had a "god complex" and expected quick service without regard to how busy the staff was at the time.

Sheriff Lombardo said Paddock had been "living a secret life, much of which would never be fully understood".

Media outlets also reported Thursday that Paddock may have scouted sites in Boston as well.

Las Vegas killer Stephen Paddock's brother once threatened to kill a friend in California, TMZ reported. A gunman opened fire on an outdoor music concert on Sunday killing dozens and injuring hundreds. "That's the one in this one, and we are not there yet", FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said.
