  • LAS VEGAS NV- OCTOBER 3 Las Vegas Blvd. remained closed to vehicular traffic near the scene of Sunday night's mass shooting

TMZ, a US celebrity news website, reported on Thursday that Stephen Paddock booked two rooms on the park side of the Blackstone Hotel with a clear view of the Lollapalooza, which drew hundreds of thousands of music fans every year at Grant Park in Chicago, Xinhua reported.

Paddock also rented a hotel room in Las Vegas that corresponded with the "Life is Beautiful" music festival, officials said.

Marilou Danley, the Australian girlfriend of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock, has given a chilling account of his mental health, according to two former FBI officials.

Fifty-eight victims were killed, making Las Vegas the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.

In his car, Paddock had 1,600 rounds of ammunition and 50 pounds of explosives, typically used in target shooting. Nearly 25 were at the hotel room in Mandalay Bay Hotel.

"Like all Filipinos abroad, I was excited to go home and see family and friends".

Sheriff Lombardo said police believe the 'disturbed and dangerous' Paddock planned to survive the shooting and escape, but did not reveal how.

The guard then helped a group of police officers evacuate rooms on the 32nd floor of the hotel. TMZ published what is supposedly a picture of a computer screen in the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago showing Paddock's reservation. "You've got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point", Lombardo said. "He went up there to investigate the open door, and as he was doing his job, he came under fire by our suspect".

Danley, 62, returned to the United States Tuesday night from the Philippines, her home country, and was met by FBI agents at Los Angeles International Airport.

Crime scene photos inside Paddock's room that were leaked to the media show an array of high-powered rifles littering the ground and mounds of bullet casings. The shooter, according to Lombardo, set up several surveillance cameras outside his room to monitor the hallway.
