Las Vegas Gunman Scouted Locations in Boston and Chicago, Officials Say

Share

Police say they're increasing security for Sunday's Chicago Marathon after a gunman opened fire on an outdoor music festival in Las Vegas from his high-rise hotel room earlier this week, killing 58 people.

On Sept. 28, the 64-year-old high-stakes gambler and real estate investor checked into Mandalay Bay and specifically requested an upper-floor room with a view of the Route 91 Harvest music festival, according to a person who has seen hotel records turned over to investigators.

Hundreds of thousands of spectators attended, including Malia Obama, daughter of the ex-us president Barack Obama.

Investigators have been scrambling to try and establish a motive for his massacre.

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

In her application, the Thiruvananthapuram-native sought an investigation by central agencies like NIA into the religious conversions in the state.

While the website said Paddock never showed up for his booking, the report suggested a scenario that would have been similar to the Las Vegas Strip concert Sunday night.

"Stephen Paddock is a man who spent decades acquiring weapons and ammo and living a secret life, much of which will never be fully understood", Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said at a news briefing on Wednesday night.

In Chicago, his room overlooked the Lollapalooza festival and in the Vegas strip, the Life is lovely show seems to have caught his eye, according to the Associated Press.

Officials said they haven't found evidence that Paddock traveled to either Chicago or Boston.

Danley told FBI agents Wednesday she had not noticed any changes in his mental state or indications he could become violent, the federal official said. "We have a lot of work to do".

Even though Paddock's brother has earlier mentioned that the gunman has never really shown an affinity towards guns or any group, the 64-year-old had 1,600 rounds of ammunition in his auto, and 23 weapons in his hotel room. She was in the Philippines visiting her family on the day of the attack.

Describing that Paddock had a "god complex", the executive said that Paddock always wanted the staff to be at his beck and call and wanted quick service no matter how busy the place was.

He said they are interested in Paddock's medical history and are looking into that.

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something awful like this was going to happen", she said in a statement read by her lawyer. "You can't ever guarantee something but you also can't not go about your life as you would normally and you can't let these sick people win", said Radcliffe.
