It was reported Thursday that the attack at the Mandalay Bay might not have been the first time Paddock booked a hotel overlooking a musical event. He purchased all of his firearms legally. Lollapalooza draws hundreds of thousands of music fans every year to Grant Park.

Investigators believe a note found in the Las Vegas shooter's hotel room contained a series of numbers that helped him calculate more precise shots.
