Mass shooting suspect may have planned attack during Life is lovely festival

New evidence now raises the prospect that the shooter who terrorized the Route 91 Harvest Festival may have considered other targets, including the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago's Grant Park and the Life Is Beautiful festival in downtown Las Vegas. He later booked a second room for August 3 through August 6, the same days as Lollapalooza in Grant Park.

The report comes just hours after Las Vegas Police revealed the man responsible for the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history spent decades acquiring weapons, while he lived a secret life.

Two months later, Paddock booked rooms in the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas and, from the 32nd floor, fired hundreds of rounds at a crowd attending a country music festival. Lombardo said that it wasn't immediately known if Paddock had planned an attack on that event.

An FBI official in Las Vegas, meanwhile, said no one has been taken into custody.




His motive remains unclear. Authorities continue to investigate.

Investigators looking into Paddock's background and his movements before his killing spree erupted in Las Vegas say he must have had some help along the way given his huge arsenal and precise plans, but they have no idea who that might be. He says the department will increase the number of undercover officers working Monday night when the Bears play at Soldier Field and next week when the Cubs return to Wrigley Field for the National League playoffs. "We don't know yet", Lombardo said.

She said she loved Paddock as a "kind, caring, quiet man" and hoped they would have a future together.

Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, was questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday and said in a statement she had been unaware of his plans. She was visiting her native Philippines. He had no known criminal record and nearly no close friends or social media presence. Her lawyer, Matt Lombard, said his client was co-operating fully with authorities.
