Investigators Still Looking For Motive Of Las Vegas Shooter

Las Vegas gunman had booked a hotel near Lollapalooza

TMZ reports that Haddock booked rooms in a hotel overlooking Chicago's massive Lollapalooza festival in August.

In addition to the 58 people killed, almost 500 were injured, some by gunfire, some trampled or otherwise hurt while running for cover.

However, the official said there was no evidence that Paddock ever came to Chicago that weekend, according to the Associated Press.

Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said Friday at a news conference that examinations of Paddock's politics, finances, any possible radicalization and his social behavior have turned up little information on what led to the attack.

The shooter in the Las Vegas deadly massacre apparently planned to survive and escape in the moments after the massacre, but investigators did not specifically say how he meant to do that. Nearly two dozen firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition were discovered in the shooter's hotel room.

Paddock never showed at the Chicago hotel, but The Chicago Tribune reports local police are investigating in coordination with federal law enforcement.




Investigators remain clueless as to Paddock's motive for the attack.

Authorities have said they plan to return the belongings to people in the next week.

"We're told the hotel does not guarantee view rooms, but for some reason in the hotel computer system there's a note that guaranteed Paddock a view room".

After being shot, Campos spoke with police officers at 10:18 p.m., giving them the shooter's exact room and key pass. "He loved her. I mean he doted on her". "Reasons that ran through Paddock's mind is unknown", Lombardo continued, "but it was directly during the same time as [the] Life is Beautiful [Festival]".

When asked by another reporter if Paddock tried to carry out the massacre on his own, Lombardo replied, "You've got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point".

Police recovered about 50 firearms from three locations they searched, almost half of them from the hotel suite from which Paddock launched the attack.
