Las Vegas shooter booked Chicago hotel during Lollapalooza

The previous weekend, Paddock had rented a high-rise condo in a building that overlooked the Life is handsome alternative music festival featuring Chance the Rapper, Muse, Lorde and Blink-182, said Lombardo, who offered no other details about what led Paddock there.

"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".

One side of the hotel faces Grant Park, an expansive space where the Lollapalooza festival was held.

Paddock, who slaughtered 58 people and injured 489, had allegedly booked two hotel rooms overlooking the Lollapalooza festival area during its duration in August.

Lombardo said Paddock booked a room at the 21-story Ogden condo building via Airbnb, during the three-day Life Is Beautiful festival in downtown Las Vegas.

After the awful massacre at a Las Vegas music festival on Sunday night that killed 58 and injured hundreds more, concerns emerged immediately about other sites that could be vulnerable to a similar attack.

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock booked rooms over other music festivals in the months before opening fire on a country music festival, authorities said, while thousands came out to mourn a police officer who was one of the 58 people he killed.

'We are aware of the media reports and have been in communication with our federal partners.

Lollapalooza did not respond to requests for comment. The 3 days festival ran from September 22 to September 24, it featured Chance the Rapper, Lorde and Blink 182. Malia Obama, daughter of former President Barack Obama, was also in attendance.

According to the recent reports, the gunman who carried the Las Vegas mass shooting on Sunday night, the 64-year-old Stephen Paddock first researched locations in Chicago and Boston for the attack before Las Vegas massacre.

But he ultimately chose to mount an attack from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino across the street from the Route 91 Harvest country music festival held last weekend. Police have yet to comment on why he scouted the locations in Boston and Chicago, but a federal official said that authorities are looking into the possibility that Paddock may have planned additional attacks, potentially including a auto bombing. They move this way because they no longer hear the gunfire of an active shooter situation.

Danley, who was overseas for more than two weeks, said she was initially pleased when she was wired money from Paddock to buy a house for her family in the Philippines. "They're going to be around the runners", Riccio said.

Danley arrives back in the USA from the Philippines. But investigators have been frustrated to find that he lived a "secret life", Lombardo said, "much of which will never be fully understood". "We may never know with a 100 percent certainty", he said.
