Las Vegas Gunman Rented Multiple Hotel Rooms Before Attack

Las Vegas Gunman Rented Multiple Hotel Rooms Before Attack

Paddock booked the rooms through a third party - Expedia. The hotel overlooks Grant Park where the Lollapalooza festival is held each year.

They say Stephen Paddock rented rooms in high-rises overlooking the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago in August and over the Life is attractive festival near the Vegas Strip in September. The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said it was unclear whether Paddock was ever in the city or when he conducted the Internet searches.

Chicago police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi said: "We are aware of the media reports and have been in communication with our federal partners".

Investigators are trying to identify a mystery woman who had been seen with Paddock days before he carried out the Las Vegas massacre, police told NBC News.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo gave the first detailed timeline of the massacre on Wednesday evening, saying the shooter fired hundreds of rounds for a full 10 minutes from his Las Vegas hotel room as music fans ran for their lives outside.

A spokeswoman for the Blackstone Hotel, Emmy Carragher, says a person with the name Stephen Paddock reserved a room but never checked in.

At a Friday afternoon press conference, investigators said they were looking into whether he had tried to attack other similar events. 59 people have been confirmed dead, and another 500 were injured in the attack.

Tuesday night: Danley arrives back in the USA from the Philippines.

Paddock's reservations began August 1 and 3, according to the reports, and Lollapalooza began on August 3.

Among the 400,000 attendees at this year's Lollapalooza was former President Barack Obama's oldest daughter Malia, and acts on stage included The Killers, Chance the Rapper, Muse and Charli XCX.

Paddock, 64, carried out the deadliest mass shooting in USA history on Sunday night when he fired shots from a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Like the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, Lollapalooza gathered a crowd of thousands of people. Authorities continue to investigate.

"We have been down each and every one of these paths", McMahill said.

Lombardo said he didn't know what Paddock intended with the explosives and wouldn't elaborate on getaway plans.

"We are constantly revising and asking fundamental questions", said Mayor Rahm Emanuel, adding that the marathon would proceed as planned.
