Las Vegas Investigation Continues
Reporting by Trace Gallagher
Other cities are responding to claims that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock may have considered targeting them as well.
Late today, Chicago police told FOX News that it believes Paddock booked two rooms at a hotel overlooking the Lollapalooza music festival this summer, also saying quote:
“We are aware of the media reports and have been in communication with our federal partners. As you saw earlier this week the city conducts extensive public safety planning and training around major events, in close coordination with our law enforcement partners, to ensure public safety.”
Last night, officials said Paddock may have also had additional Las Vegas targets. He rented a room in September near the Life is Beautiful music festival.
Investigators are acknowledging that they may never fully understand what pushed the man they’re calling “disturbed and dangerous” to carry out the worst domestic attack in U.S. history.
One thing they do believe—Paddock probably didn’t act completely on his own.
The FBI spent hours yesterday questioning Marilou Danley, Paddock’s girlfriend, after her return from the Philippines. Danley is cooperating and said she knew Paddock as a “kind, caring, quiet man.”
As hospitals continue to treat the injured, the death toll has remained at 58. All of the victims have been identified.
With so many questions still remaining, investigators are predicting a long road ahead.
