Vegas shooting: Stephen Paddock booked hotel room overlooking Lollapalooza festival

Gunman booked hotel overlooking Lollapalooza in Chicago 2 months before Las Vegas massacre

Stephen Paddock reportedly booked hotel rooms overlooking other major concerts in the weeks before he killed at least 58 people and injured almost 500 who were attending a country music festival in Las Vegas.

As first reported by TMZ, Paddock booked two rooms at the Blackstone Hotel, one for August 1 and one for August 3, through Expedia, then called to ask that his rooms have views.

Paddock requested an upper-floor room with a view of the Route 91 Harvest music festival when he checked into the Mandalay Bay on September 28, the AP quoted a person with access to the hotel records.

As per the several media reports, the gunman Paddock had rented a room in Vegas in order to overlook 3 days festival in downtown Las Vegas - Life Beautiful.

The first shots were reported at 10:05pm, with the first two Las Vegas police officers arriving on the 31st floor of the hotel, one floor below, by 10:12, he said.

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

The hotel close Fenway offers, best case scenario a deterred perspective of the ballpark - and Paddock at last abandoned the hunt, authorities said.

"You can't let terror deter you from enjoying yourself and going about a normal life", Tina Manley said. "This is all conjecture at this point", Lombardo said.

More than a month before the Las Vegas mass shooting, a man believed to be the shooter booked a hotel room overlooking yet another popular music festival.

Federal Bureau of Investigation officials questioned Paddocks' live-in girlfriend, Marilou Danley, about her involvement.

Canada Cancels Plans to Build Pipelines
The decision comes a month after TransCanada asked the National Energy Board to put regulatory hearings on hold. On Thursday, Notley called on the NEB to explain what future project reviews will look like in Canada.

Chicago Police issued this response via Twitter. The official, who was not authorized to discuss the investigation of Paddock's movements, spoke only on condition of anonymity after being briefed on the investigation. However, Paddock never checked into the hotel and there is now no evidence that supports he was in Chicago around those dates.

Investigators haven't determined whether Paddock was considering targeting the festival, Lombardo said.

Ms Danley says she had no idea Paddock planned the shooting. "We have a lot of work to do".

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

The Red Sox and Boston Police Department revealed the plans in response to a Boston Globe inquiry spurred by news Thursday concerning Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock's suggestive internet into the city and, specifically, Fenway.
