Vegas shooter booked room facing Lollapalooza in Chicago

Vegas shooter booked room facing Lollapalooza in Chicago

A Chicago hotel where a law enforcement official says Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock booked a room in August during a music festival says no one by that name stayed at the hotel.

Paddock also searched for hotels near Fenway Park, but there is no indication he traveled to Boston.

In updated information Thursday, law enforcement told CNN that Paddock had 23 different weapons inside his Mandalay Bay hotel suite, along with 50 pounds of explosives and 1,600 rounds of ammunition in his vehicle parked in the hotel's parking lot. "That's the one in this one, and we are not there yet", McCabe said.

U.S. media, citing multiple anonymous law enforcement sources, reported that searches of the Las Vegas gunman's communications and electronic equipment found that he had scouted locations in both Chicago and Boston. There is now no known threat to the Metro Boston Homeland Security Region related to this incident.

Metropolitan Police said they were called to Exhibition Road near the Natural History Museum just after 2.20pm. London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he was in close contact with the police's most senior counter-terrorism officer.

TMZ, a United States celebrity news website, reported on Thursday that Stephen Paddock booked two rooms on the park side of the Blackstone Hotel with a clear view of the Lollapalooza, which drew hundreds of thousands of music fans every year at Grant Park in Chicago, Xinhua reported.

Lollapalooza was held from August 3 to 6 this year, and Paddock's two rooms were booked from August 1 to 6 and from August 3 to 6. Paddock may have scouted out sites around Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox team along with allegedly surveying another popular Las Vegas music event-"Life is Beautiful" Music Festival which took place Sept.22-24. Which is to wonder what ultimately inspired Paddock wasn't so much ideology (that normally identifies a terrorist who victimizes on principle) but rather size and massive impact.

However when Ms Danley moved in with Paddock - whom she had met while working as a "high roller hostess" at Reno's Atlantis Casino - she was a "a different person" to the woman described by the Rileys.

A Belgian FA official also confirmed the injury, and said: "It is something to be anxious about on first sight". Belgium are fearful that Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has suffered a knee ligament injury.

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.

The shooter in last weekend's attack in Las Vegas had his eyes on two other major US cities, officials told NBC News on Thursday. Paddock's renting of the condo was curious, because as a high-roller, he could have easily gotten a free room at one of the casino hotels on the Las Vegas Strip. The festival ran from September 22 to September 24.

A law enforcement official said earlier Thursday that Paddock had booked a room at the Blackstone Hotel.

Authorities say they are beefing up security for Sunday's Chicago Marathon following reports the Las Vegas shooter booked a Chicago hotel room during the weekend of a major music festival held across the street. The perch is eerily similar to what the shooter saw of the Route 91 Festival grounds from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino as he unleashed a hail of bullets on concertgoers. She said her partner gave her the tickets for a holiday in her birth country last month and transferred $US100,000 to her account as "a gift".
