Las Vegas gunman scouted hotels near Fenway Park in Boston

MoreCloseclosemore

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Paddock made reservations at Chicago's Blackstone Hotel for the weekend of the Lalapalooza music festival, and specifically requested the two rooms he reserved to have views of the main stage.

The Boston Globe, quoting anonymous sources, reported that Paddock may have scouted Fenway Park and other Boston venues before settling on Vegas.

According to the NBC report, Boston police were aware of the reports and were working with federal officials. It was unclear if Paddock ever used the rooms or was in Chicago during the festival, according to the law enforcement official, who was not authorized to discuss the case publicly. He allegedly picked a hotel room with a clear view of the concert crowd across the street, stockpiled modified high-powered weapons and even set up cameras in and around the hotel suite he did the shooting from.

News reports multiple law enforcement officials say Stephen Paddock researched hotels in the vicinity of Fenway Park.




"That's something that obviously concerns us but right now there's no credible threat that anyone is still out there looking to do anything like that", Evans told reporters on Thursday night.

Gov. Charlie Baker reiterated that there is no evidence of any threat to MA at the moment and that Las Vegas officials are the primary source of information. Malia Obama, daughter of former President Barack Obama, was among the thousands of spectators at the Lollapalooza festival.

The FBI Boston Division said there is no information to indicate any additional threat, and "Any possible nexus to Boston discovered during the ongoing investigation has and will be immediately briefed to the Boston Police Department, and other affected law enforcement agencies".

The horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas resulted in 59 people killed and over 500 injured.
