Las Vegas gunman booked hotel rooms overlooking an earlier music festival

Las Vegas gunman booked hotel rooms overlooking an earlier music festival”

Stephen Paddock, the man who killed 59 people at a country music concert in Las Vegas on Sunday, reportedly also targeted the Lollapalooza site two months ago.

Did Marilou Danley know about Stephen Paddock mass murder plot? That said, a senior law enforcement official said that hotels in the vicinity typically have an obstructed view, if one at all.

Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi would not confirm the TMZ report about Paddock's plans in Chicago, but said the department is aware of the report.

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock meant to spray giant jet fuel tanks with bullets according to a Las Vegas Review Journal report. Lombardo said at a news conference.

Authorities say the man accused of killing 58 people and injuring nearly 500 in Las Vegas this weekend may have been targeting other music festivals.

Tuesday night: Danley arrives back in the USA from the Philippines.

When Paddock checked into the Mandalay Bay on September 28, he requested an upper-floor room with a view of the Route 91 Harvest music festival, according to a person who has seen hotel records turned over to investigators and spoke on condition of anonymity. The outlet also noted that 400,000 people, including Malia Obama, attended the event in total over four days.

Yet, according to new reports, he may have planned attacks at other popular concert venues in the United States.

Investigators believe Paddock used a device similar to a hammer to smash two windows in his room before he opened fire on the music festival crowd, shortly after a rendition of "God Bless America". An unnamed hotel source also confirmed the information to DNAinfo, the publication said.

"The Boston Regional Intelligence Center is in contact with our local and federal law enforcement partners here and in Las Vegas and continues to monitor the situation". Authorities continue to investigate.

Monday: Investigators say they have located the suspect's girlfriend and say that she is overseas and is no longer a person of interest.

He said he felt it was unlikely Paddock could have pulled off the elaborate plan alone, though investigators have no idea who may have helped him.

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said he was surprised Paddock had provided so few clues, and that has proved challenging.
