He additionally looked into another potential focus in Beantown - the Boston Center for the Arts, authorities said.

Police found the 64-year-old former accountant dead in a room on the 32nd floor of a hotel after he sprayed bullets on concert-goers below, injuring almost 500. Answering questions on the wired money 62-year-old Danley said: "I was grateful, but honestly I was anxious it was a way for him to break up with me", she said.

There is no indication he ever traveled to Boston or Chicago, the officials said. Some of those resources will be seen and some will be undercover, the official said.

"All of this craziness could have happened to me and a lot of people I know that also attended Lollapalooza", said Columbia College student Jake Eisendrath.

Before Game 1 of the American League Division Series, the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox held a moment of silence in memory of those injured, lost, and effected by the Las Vegas catastrophe. The team said Boston police tactical teams will be stationed inside the ballpark and surrounding perimeter, and additional detail officers will be on site, including undercover officers monitoring the crowd.

Paddock also amassed a huge arsenal of weapons and explosives, and set up surveillance equipment outside his room to detect any approaching outsiders, including police.

"You have to make an assumption that he had some help at some point", he said.

Moreover, Russia's Energy Minister Alexander Novak has said that Libya is also expected to join the OPEC deal. In June 2017, the oil producers agreed to extend those cuts until March 2018.

"Plus, we need to support the Red Sox", added Rodney Manley. That event went off without incident just a week before the assault Sunday night. However, Paddock never checked into the rooms.

The information, said Evans, came from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

TMZ reported early Thursday that Paddock had booked two rooms at the Blackstone Hotel, which overlooks Grant Park in Chicago, and provided a screengrab of his reservation dates, which lined up with when Lollapalooza started and ended.

While police continue to investigate his motives and discern a reason behind the attack, speculation stirred that he had booked a condo in Las Vegas a week prior for the Life Is Beautiful festival, and could have been targeting that event, as well.

Ms Danley says she had no idea Paddock planned the shooting.

"The safety and security of the people of Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island is our top priority and we work hand-in-hand with our law enforcement partners to share and act upon threat information as it comes to our attention".
