Two months later, Paddock rented a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort, and opened fire on a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip, killing 58 people and wounding hundreds more.

And, according to TMZ, the 64-year-old reserved one room for August 1, two days before the festival, and then booked a second room for August 3.

Paddock allegedly requested both rooms be a "view room" overlooking the concert venue, Grant Park, alongside Lake Michigan.

Lollapalooza's lineup included Lorde, Muse, the Killers, Arcade Fire, Blink-182 and Chance the Rapper.

The weekend before the shooting, Paddock also rented an apartment in a 21-storey building in Las Vegas that overlooked the Life Is Beautiful festival, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said.

Las Vegas lunatic Stephen Paddock looked into assault areas in Chicago and Boston before settling on Sin City, as per reports distributed Thursday.

"He liked everybody to think that he was the guy", John Weinreich said. Lombardo said at a news conference.

A picture of a computer screen at the Blackstone Hotel purports to show the check-in information and was published by TMZ, which first reported the hotel booking.

Yet it seems today that the shooter had planned another shooting, at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, this time.

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.

"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", Ms Danley, 62, said.

Danley said that Paddock "never said anything to me, or took any action I was aware of, that I ever understood to be a warning that something terrible like this was going to happen", according to the Los Angeles Times.

NBC News, citing anonymous former Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, reported that Ms Danley said she remembered him laying in bed and moaning and that investigators are looking at the possibility he may have been in "physical or mental anguish".

Police believe Paddock, who shot himself after carrying out the Vegas outrage, had hoped to survive and flee.

Investigators trying to determine what triggered the massacre say Paddock's plans were meticulous.

Law enforcement officials who have been briefed on the investigation told CNN on Thursday they have seen no indication that Paddock had an accomplice or that anyone was aware of his planning.

Meanwhile, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told AP on Wednesday that he was surprised that more has not been discovered about Paddock or his motives.
