Las Vegas gunman scouted hotels near Fenway Park in Boston

Official: Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock Booked Room In Chicago In August During Lollapalooza Music Fest

The gunman who holed up in a room on the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel on Sunday before raining bullets on revelers gathered for a country music festival across the street had booked hotel rooms near the Lollapalooza music festival two months earlier, according to multiple reports. The shooter who has committed the shooting the deadliest in recent american history in Las Vegas had booked this summer a room hotel in Chicago, overlooking the huge rock festival Lollapalooza, reports on Thursday the u.s. site TMZ.

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.

More than 400,000 people came out for August's annual Lollapalooza festival in Chicago's historic Grant Park, which featured performances by The Killers, Chance the Rapper, Lorde, Arcade Fire, Justice and Liam Gallagher.

The world is still reeling from the mass shooting that rocked Las Vegas and left at least 59 people dead and hundreds of others injured.

She said in a statement released by her lawyer that she feared that might be his way of breaking up with her, but nothing more.

"I think about it from the perspective that if it happened now, how do you get out of where you are?" he said.

The profile developed so far is of a "disturbed and dangerous" man who acquired an arsenal over decades, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said.

Solar power globally rising; is the fastest growing power source for 2016
Renewables made up almost two-thirds of new net power capacity around the world in 2016, with 165 GW of capacity coming online. Solar and wind power in India combine for about 90 percent of new capacity growth.

According to TMZ's sources, Paddock never showed up. One room had an arrival date booked two days before the festival started and the other had an arrival date for the first day of the concert.

Even the No. 2 official in the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday he was surprised investigators have not uncovered more about why a man with no obvious criminal record would cause so much bloodshed.

A senior Boston police official said Boston Police Commissioner William Evans spoke to the Red Sox to ensure that there will be extra police resources in and around the ballpark for Sunday's home playoff game against the Houston Astros.

The Las Vegas massacre has also dragged Paddock's girlfriend Danley into the investigation even though she was out of the country at the time of the attack. Paddock shot himself in the head as officers closed in.

Investigators have zeroed in on a weapon-buying binge Paddock went on in the year before the attack.

"There's all kinds of things that surprise us in each one of these events".
