Las Vegas Mass Shooter Reportedly Booked Hotel Rooms During Lollapalooza

08 October 2017

TMZ revealed on Thursday that Paddock rented two hotel rooms at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago on August 1 and August 3.

He added that investigators are also aware that the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) has claimed responsibility for the shooting, but said that they have found "no known nexus" to terrorism or connections to ISIS.

Andrew McCabe, the deputy director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, conceded on Wednesday the case was "somewhat different than numerous ones we've dealt with in the past". "There would have been a lot higher casualty rate if he had tracer rounds", Art Roderick, a former assistant director of the US Marshals Service, told CNN.

"You set up the cameras so you aren't caught alive", Mr Lankford said. 489 more were injured. She returned to the U.S. Tuesday.

She told authorities that she couldn't believe that her "kind, caring, quiet" boyfriend could commit such a heinous crime.

"I was grateful, but honestly, I was anxious, that first, the unexpected trip home, and then the money, was a way of breaking up with me", Danley said. He was not able to do so because the seller of the equipment was out of stock, the official said.

- A Philippine immigration official quoted by the AP says Danley arrived in Manila on September 15, two weeks before the shootings.

Billboards will serve as a stark reminder that investigators remain stumped about what drove a gunman to mow down concertgoers from a perch in a high-rise casino hotel last Sunday.

"We are united in our grief, in our support for those who have suffered and united in our resolve to end such evil in our time", Pence said, joining Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman and other local leaders at a City Hall commemoration for victims of the shooting.

Officer Dave Newton of the Las Vegas Police Department's K-9 unit said he discovered the note lying face-up on Paddock's nightstand. The Las Vegas sheriff said of Campos, "His bravery was incredible".

Investigators still aren't sure whether Paddock had planned an attack there or if he merely engaged in pre-surveillance.

The Blackstone, one of Chicago's historic hotels built between 1908 and 1910, overlooks Grant Park, including the area of the main entrace to the festival along with several stages. The hotel is situated across from the park.

The petition said that it was a necessary step to allow lawsuits to be brought against Paddock's estate. They said that a "significant amount" of the explosive was in its "finished product", while they also found ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder, which, when combined make the finished product of Tannerite. All but three of those weapons were bought in a single month, October 2016, according to Lombardo.

People who knew Paddock described him as anti-social, someone who went out of his way to avoid other human beings, but his girlfriend said she saw no indication that he was capable of such horror.
