Report: Las Vegas gunman booked hotel near Grant Park during Lolla

Las Vegas shooter may have originally targeted high-profile 'Life is Beautiful Festival'

The Las Vegas gunman, Stephen Paddock, booked two hotel rooms overlooking the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago two months before firing on a crowd of 22,000 country music concertgoers on the Vegas strip.

Around 400,000 people attended the four-day music festival, including Malia Obama.

Snyder said authorities wouldn't get notified of the purchase of rifles, but would get notified if there was a multiple sale of two or more handguns in one purchase.

The Chicago Police Department said in a statement that it was aware of the TMZ report about the Blackstone booking.

The gunshots stopped at 10:15pm, two minutes before the initially responding officers made their way to Paddock's floor. Both rooms had an August 6 checkout date - the last day of the festival.

Sources also confirmed Stephen requested both rooms to be "view rooms", which face Grant Park.

Gov. Charlie Baker said there is no evidence of an imminent threat that has anything to do with the Commonwealth, and deferred to authorities in Vegas.

The lodging near Fenway offers at best an obstructed view of the ballpark - and Paddock ultimately gave up on the search, officials said. Vast death was all that mattered.

The 62-year-old said in a statement read by her lawyer that Paddock had sent her to see family in her native Philippines weeks earlier, and she was still overseas at the time of the attack. While there are many hotels near the home of the Boston Red Sox, none have rooms that overlook the ballpark. The TMZ story did not quote a source and said Paddock never checked into the hotel.

CBS News has reported he did scout other hotels and concert venues in the Las Vegas area, looking to book specific rooms. The festival was headlined by Chance the Rapper, Muse, Lorde and Blink-182. However, Paddock never checked into the hotel and there is now no evidence that supports he was in Chicago around those dates.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police still did not know why the additional rooms had been booked, but suggested Paddock may have been doing pre-surveillance for his attack.

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.

Authorities have yet to say what ultimately motivated Paddock, except to say the multimillionaire accountant and gambler lived a secretive double life.
