Vegas Shooter Booked Hotel Rooms Overlooking Lollapalooza

The hotel is located directly across the street from the music festival's venue.

USA Today and the gossip site TMZ specifically reported that he reserved two rooms "facing" and "overlooking" the music festival, respectively, during its scheduled dates, though it's not known that he ever checked into the rooms or even traveled to Chicago. The official wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Boston's Police Commissioner William Evans said he could not immediately confirm an NBC report that Paddock researched possible locations there.

Australian police are assisting their US counterparts on the investigation into Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend Marilou Danley. That said, a senior law enforcement official said that hotels in the vicinity typically have an obstructed view, if one at all.

Separately, Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said on Wednesday that Paddock had rented several Airbnb rooms in Vegas' downtown district that corresponded with the "Life is lovely " music festival.

TMZ wrote that Paddock, who had asked for a room with a view, would have had a bird's-eye view of all of the Lollapalooza stages and main entrance from the 20th floor. Along with the dead, the incident injured about 500 people. Paddock had sent Marilou Danley to the Philippines and wired her money. "It goes through your mind but I think the biggest thing is that you can trust that the organizers here will have done everything that they can to limit the possibility of something like that happening".

Investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the Las Vegas shooting and Paddock's whereabouts the last few months.

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". "We have not confirmed whether that is the same Stephen Paddock, and we're working with the authorities".

Over 40,000 people attended this year's Lollapalooza, including Malia Obama. Authorities continue to investigate. "They're going to be around the runners", Riccio said.

"We have a lot of work to do", FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told reporters on Wednesday.
