  • Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock attempted to shoot two large aviation fuel tanks on Sunday night but the bullets did not pierce

NBC News, citing multiple unnamed senior law enforcement officials, reported Thursday that Stephen Craig Paddock, who took his own life Sunday night in Las Vegas before law enforcement forcibly entered his hotel room, also made a hotel reservation in Chicago and may have targeted the Lollapalooza music festival for an attack.

The hotel offers the view of Grant Park, which overlooked Lollapalooza, the four-day music festival which drew nearly 400,000 people including former President's daughter - Sasha and Malia.

Stephen Paddock reportedly booked the rooms in August at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago.

Two months later, Paddock rented a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort, and opened fire on a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip, killing 58 people and wounding hundreds more.

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

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo today told reporters Paddock had 1600 rounds of ammunition and about 22kg of tannerite, an explosive commonly used in target shooting, in his car.

"I'm sorry to tell you I don't know what he was going to do with all of that Tannerite, I wish I did", Mr McMahill said.

"We want to ensure that that's the answer. maybe he's a super guy that was working out all this alone, but it would be hard for me to believe that".

The tweet showed the picture of the red Hyundai Tucson with Nevada license plate NV 114B40, but did not say when the SUV was found. The shooter, according to Lombardo, set up several surveillance cameras outside his room to monitor the hallway.
