The festival is popular with the children of the rich and famous - including former US President Barack Obama's eldest daughter Malia.

Sources have told TMZ that Paddock didn't show up for the bookings.

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.

Stephen Paddock, the man behind the mass shooting that left more than 50 people dead and almost 500 hurt in Las Vegas, may have planned event attacks in Chicago and Boston, according to media reports Thursday.

Once the event kicked off on August 3rd, Paddock had booked a second room.

He shot and killed himself as police closed in on his room.

As you already know, Paddock checked into a room situated on the 32nd floor at the Mandalay Bay Hotel.
