TMZ: Las Vegas Gunman Booked Rooms Overlooking Lollapalooza

Las Vegas Gunman May Have Eyed Lollapalooza as Target Massive Chicago concert was in Vegas killer's sights

According to the report, Paddock was aggressive and said that he need a room with a view because he would be celebrating his anniversary with his wife, and the two met at Lollapalooza.

While the website said Paddock never showed up for his booking, the report suggested a scenario that would have been similar to the Las Vegas Strip concert Sunday night. The TMZ story did not quote a source and said Paddock never checked into the hotel.

To the Texas brokers who met him in 2004, Stephen Paddock was an unremarkable man looking to buy an unremarkable property near Dallas, hardly distinguishable from other casually dressed Californians who flocked to the area to make investments. "It goes through your mind but I think the biggest thing is that you can trust that the organizers here will have done everything that they can to limit the possibility of something like that happening".

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters Wednesday that Paddock rented several rooms through Airbnb at The Ogden hotel in downtown Las Vegas.

Authorities revealed on Wednesday night that they found 1600 rounds of ammunition and 50 pounds of explosives in Paddock's vehicle. That festival featured Chicago's Chance The Rapper, who also performed at Lollapalooza on August 5.

A former executive casino host at the Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa in Reno, Nevada, where Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock frequently gambled, says Paddock had a "god complex" and expected quick service no matter how busy employees were.

In between, cops arrived on the 31st floor - just below Paddock - at 10:12pm and got to the shooter's 32nd floor at 10:17pm, officials said. Lombardo said at a news conference.

Authorities still have no idea what caused retired accountant and chronic gambler Stephen Paddock to snap.

The revelations come as investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the Las Vegas shooting.

Paddock's girlfriend, who was out of the country at the time of Sunday's shooting, said she had no idea he was planning an attack.

Weinreich called Danley a "super sweet lady" and said he later learned she had taken off with Paddock. Her attorney said she was in the Philippines to visit family.

Australia's foreign affairs department said Friday it is aware she is "a person of interest" and described her case as "a matter for US law enforcement". It wasn't immediately clear if the auto was found on Thursday or earlier in the week when police searched the home and found several guns and ammunition.
