Las Vegas police investigate possible vehicle bomb plan


The gunman who carried out the worst mass shooting in recent United States history had booked a Chicago hotel overlooking the Lollapalooza music festival in August, the website TMZ reported Thursday. His rooms at the Blackstone Hotel faced the park and were booked for Aug. 1 through Aug. 6 and Aug. 3 through Aug. 6, respectively, according to TMZ..

TheLife is lovely festival featured Chance the Rapper, Muse, Lorde and Blink-182.

Earlier this week, news broke that Stephen Paddock had also rented a unit in Las Vegas' Ogden condo complex during the time of September's Life Is Beautiful festival.

Further information about Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock is slowly coming out in the days since the deadly shooting Sunday.

After buying a plane ticket for Danley to the Philippines, Paddock wired $100,000 to her just a week before his murderous rampage.

Wagstaff Worldwide said Blackstone Hotel is cooperating with authorities.

This new disclosure suggests that Paddock might have been planning an attack months before the massacre in Las Vegas.

"This individual and this attack didn't leave the sort of immediately accessible thumbprints that you find on some mass casualty attacks", McCabe said.

Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said the shooting spanned between nine and 11 minutes.

Paddock's rooms in Chicago overlooked Lollapalooza, but he never checked into the hotel.

Danley later also told the Federal Bureau of Investigation that Paddock had developed symptoms of mental health issues and "would lie in bed, just moaning and screaming, "Oh my God, '" an ex-FBI official in the know told the Daily Mail".

A senior Boston police official said Boston Police Commissioner William Evans spoke to the Red Sox to ensure that there will be extra police resources in and around the ballpark for Sunday's home playoff game against the Houston Astros.

A law-enforcement official speaking on the condition of anonymity told AP that there was no evidence Paddock ever went to Chicago that weekend. "We can confirm that a reservation was made under the name Stephen Paddock, however authorities have not confirmed that this is the same person as the Las Vegas shooter".

"The fact that he had that type of weaponry and amount of weaponry in that room, it was pre-planned extensively and I am pretty sure he evaluated everything that he did and his actions", said Lombardo. It was unclear if Paddock was in Chicago during the festival, according to the law enforcement official, who was not authorized to discuss the case publicly.

"There's all kinds of things that surprise us in each one of these events".
