Las Vegas Gunman Booked Rooms in Chicago Overlooking Lollapalooza

Las Vegas Gunman Booked Rooms in Chicago Overlooking Lollapalooza”

He never checked in, and a hotel spokesman said they had not confirmed "whether that is the same Stephen Paddock". TMZ's sources said that Paddock allegedly requested both his rooms be a "view rooms" that face the park.

The weekend before the massacre, he rented a room through Airbnb at the 21-story Ogden condominiums in downtown Las Vegas and stayed there during a music festival below that included Chance the Rapper, Muse, Lorde and Blink-182.

The booking raised suspicions that the killer may have been scouting other venues.

The girlfriend of Las Vegas Killer's who carried out the deadliest mass shooting in the history of United State that left 58 people dead and more than 500 people injured, told the investigators that she was anxious about 64-year-old Stephen Paddock's mental stability, CBS News' Pat Milton and Andres Triay reported, citing the law enforcement source.

Paddock booked one room for August 1, 2017, 2 days before the August 3 kickoff.

The Blackstone Hotel is located at 636 S Michigan Ave, directly across the street from Chicago's Grant Park where the annual musical festival is held.

More than 400,000 people went to Lollapalooza and former President Barack Obama's oldest daughter, Malia, was also in attendance this year. He also may have scouted out the location, renting a room at the Ogden, a nearby hotel, during the Life is lovely festival a week earlier, Lombardo said.

The details came to light as investigators struggled to figure out why the high-stakes gambler opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 Sunday night from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel casino in Las Vegas.

Police found the 64-year-old former accountant dead in a room on the 32nd floor of a hotel after he sprayed bullets on concert-goers below, injuring almost 500.

More than 100 investigators are combing through the life of Paddock, who has been described as "disturbed and dangerous", in order to find clues about why he committed Sunday's attack.

The Clark County official said the authorities have looked at gunman Stephen Paddock's personal life, political affiliation, economic situation and any potential radicalisation.

"We are also aware of course that (the group) islamic State [Daesh] has claimed on several occasions and I can tell you that, to date, we have not found any link", has also indicated the police officer. "We don't know yet, this is all conjecture at this point". He added, however, that authorities have not completely dismissed the possibility. The police said he is "certain" that he was the only shooter in the room, but does not exclude that he has had help in planning his attack.
