He booked a second room for an August 3 arrival.

TMZ reports that Stephen Paddock booked two rooms at a Michigan Avenue hotel, with a specific request to have his room overlook the venue at Grant Park.

Paddock opened fire Sunday on a country music concert from a Las Vegas hotel room and killed 58 people.

Paddock reportedly committed suicide as police attempted to enter his room.

Paddock's girlfriend, who was out of the country at the time of Sunday's shooting, said she had no idea he was planning an attack. We'll be working closely with the Boston Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police, and all of our law enforcement partners to fully investigate any and all potential leads that stem from the ongoing investigation in Las Vegas.

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. Lombardo said some victims were counted twice in the confusion following the shooting.

At least 400,000 people attended Lollapalooza this year to watch acts including The Killers, Chance the rapper, Liam Gallagher and Charli XCX perform.

"They're going to be intermingled with the crowd". Our sources say he then called the hotel and asked for a view room.

The official was not authorized to discuss the case publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity after being briefed on the investigation. Though activity like this generates an alert, officials said they get tens of thousands of similar alerts every week.

Authorities discovered Paddock's interest in the two cities by examining his communications and electronic equipment, NBC News said.

Lombardo said the shooter lived a "secret life" and "meticulously planned" the worst domestic attack in recent U.S. history.

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

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said he was surprised Paddock had provided so few clues, and that has proved challenging.
