Las Vegas gunman may have scoped out other music festivals

Las Vegas mass shooting suspect Stephen Paddock was forceful and aggressive in his demands for hotel rooms overlooking Chicago's Lalapalooza music festival in August.

TMZ reports that Paddock booked one room at the Blackstone Hotel on Michigan Ave. for August 1, 2017, two days before the festival began on August 3rd. Both rooms had an August 6 checkout, the last day of the festival.

Officials say the Las Vegas shooter rented a room in downtown around the same time as an alternative music festival held September 22-24.

Paddock requested a room with a view, but never showed up for his reservation, according to TMZ sources.

Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi did not confirm the report, but tweeted that the department was aware of it and communicating with federal law enforcement partners.

Paddock fired shots at concertgoers from his 32nd-floor suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas.

But Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nev., doesn't appear to have traveled to most of those locations, said the source, who was not authorized to talk about the inquiry into Sunday's mass shooting, which killed 58 people and injured almost 500.

This news comes on the heels of a report that Paddock tried to reserve a room in Downtown Las Vegas during the Life is lovely outdoor music festival.

Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said the scale of the preparations - including weapons, ammunition and electronics he stockpiled - raise questions about Paddock potentially having had an accomplice, but none has been identified.

The room, which goes for $590 a night, was given to Paddock for free because he was a good customer who wagered tens of thousands of dollars each time he visited the casino, the person said. Nineteen more guns were found at Paddock's Mesquite home and seven at his Reno house.
