Before committing the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history at the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas on Sunday night, Stephen Paddock may have had his eyes set on a different Las Vegas music festival, The Daily Beast reported. His movements raised the possibility he was contemplating attacks at those sites.

Paddock's shooting rampage was the deadliest in modern US history.

The gunman who carried out the worst mass shooting in recent USA history had booked rooms at a Chicago hotel overlooking the Lollapalooza music festival in August, the website TMZ reported on Thursday.

Stephen Paddock is the man responsible for America's worst ever mass shooting. Lollapalooza draws hundreds of thousands of music fans every year to Grant Park.

The person was not authorized to speak publicly and disclosed the information to The Associated Press only on condition of anonymity.

TMZ said both rooms had a checkout of August 6th.

Lombardo said Paddock booked a room at the 21-story Ogden condo building via Airbnb, during the three-day Life Is Beautiful festival in downtown Las Vegas. Lombardo gave no details on what Paddock was up to.

Las Vegas mass murderer Stephen Paddock meant to use his 32nd floor hotel location to spray giant jet fuel tanks with bullets according to a Las Vegas Review Journal report.

The Las Vegas gunman asked to be upgraded to a hotel room with a "better view" at the Mandalay Bay Hotel (pictured is his smashed room window after the massacre).

Ms Danley was out of the country at the time of the attack and said Paddock sent her to see her family in her native Philippines.

Discerning Paddock's motive has proven especially baffling as he had no criminal record, no known history of mental illness and no outward signs of social disaffection, political discontent or extremist ideology, police said.

The No. 2 official in the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday he was surprised investigators had not uncovered more. "We're the city of big shoulders, we put on big events.and people enjoy them.this is where Chicago can shine and is capable", said Emanuel.
