The gunman who holed up in a room on the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel on Sunday before raining bullets on revelers gathered for a country music festival across the street had booked hotel rooms near the Lollapalooza music festival two months earlier, according to multiple reports.

It was there he booked two hotel rooms at a 21-story hotel with a sweeping view of Grant Park, TMZ reported.

Secondly, garage records show that "during a period when Paddock's vehicle left the hotel garage", one of his key cards was used to access his room.

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said authorities were aware of the report and that they have been in communication with the feds, WLS-TV of Chicago reported. "The city conducts extensive public safety planning and training around major events, in close coordination with our law enforcement partners, to ensure public safety".

Where other mass killers have left behind a trail of plain-sight clues that help investigators quickly understand what drove them to violence, Paddock, 64, had almost no close friends, social media presence or other clear connections to the broader world.

Investigators are seen on September 13, 2017, at a Florida nursing home where multiple people died during Hurricane Irma. The rehabilitation center at Hollywood Hills informed state officials that the facility is closing its doors.

The booking emerged after Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo revealed Paddock had reserved another apartment in Las Vegas a week before Sunday's massacre.

"The investigation is being led by the folks in Las Vegas, and we're in constant conversation with the fusion center here in MA, which is in constant contact with them", Baker said.

Investigators saye he also had a plan to survive the shooting and try to escape, though would not say how.

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.

The gunman's girlfriend has also said she had no idea what he was plotting.

For instance, the volume will automatically adjust depending on the ambient sound of the room its in or even the time of day. With a single command, you can control multiple smart home devices plus get information you need in the moment.

Days after the attack, Paddock's motive remains unclear. She said she was devastated by the carnage and would cooperate with authorities as they struggle to get inside Paddock's mind.

The Boston Red Sox, who have a home playoff game Thursday against the Houston Astros, also released a statement about the new reports, according to CBS Local.

Authorities have been at a loss as to why and how Paddock - a 64-year-old gambler and retired accountant with no criminal history - hauled a vast arsenal of weapons to a Las Vegas hotel and launched an assault, before taking his own life. Performing at this year's iteration of the typically star-studded festival were Lorde and Chance The Rapper, and thousands upon thousands of people attend every year.

Police were reviewing video shot at the high-rise to check Paddock's movements.

Hotel sources who spoke to TMZ said that Paddock was "forceful" in his demands, and that hotel staff gave in.

The inventor charged with her death is a Dane named Peter Madsen and who fully denies the charges of murder. He slipped and lost his grasp on the incubate, which at that point hit her on the head, he said.

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said he was surprised Paddock had provided so few clues, and that has proved challenging.
