Las Vegas gunman may have planned attack at Lollapalooza

Las Vegas shooter may have targeted concert Malia Obama was attending

He never showed up for his Chicago booking, according to the media reports, but the August 2-5 timing may have offered Paddock an opportunity similar to the Las Vegas Strip concert Sunday night.

Before checking into Mandalay Bay days before the massacre, Stephen Paddock rented a room at a Las Vegas condo complex that overlooked another music festival.

Danley, who was in the Philippines when the shooting occurred, flew back to the United States and is cooperating with authorities.

The first booking was made a full two months before he opened fire on a country music concert in Las Vegas from a 32nd-floor room of a hotel in the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

Notes in the system also say that Paddock wanted a notification before checking in if the hotel was unable to give him a "view room", sources told the website.

"If anything has to be done, (police and other emergency responders) are going to do it", said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi would not confirm the TMZ report about Paddock's plans in Chicago, but said the department is aware of the report.

Paddock also researched Chicago's Lollapalooza festival, which is held in August, and reportedly booked rooms at a hotel looking over Grant Park, where the event was held this year.

Lombardo said Paddock spent decades stockpiling guns and living a "secret life" that investigators may never be able to fully understand.

The four-day festival stretches from August 3 to 6.


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

Police were reviewing video shot at the high-rise to check Paddock's movements. The retired accountant rented multiple apartments at the Ogden, a luxury tower with a view of the Life is handsome alternative music festival.

Also, the weekend before the Las Vegas bloodbath, Paddock rented via Airbnb - and checked into - a condo in a 21-story luxury building in Las Vegas that overlooked the Life is attractive alternative music festival, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Tuesday.

He also looked up another potential target in Beantown - the Boston Center for the Arts, officials said.

Paddock killed 58 and wounded 489 when he opened fire from his hotel room on revellers at a country music event.

Police recovered almost 50 firearms from three locations they searched, almost half of them from the hotel suite.

It became clear pretty quickly that the shooter, Stephen Paddock, had put significant planning into the attack. Many of those answers still remain a mystery.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Aaron Rouse said that more than 100 agents are looking to help Las Vegas authorities figure out if Paddock had help in the shooting, according to The Los Angeles Times. Asked what it was, he said: "I can't tell you".

FBI agents investigating the shooting spree questioned Paddock's girlfriend, 62-year-old Marilou Danley, on Wednesday.
