Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock searched for hotels near Fenway Park

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock searched for hotels near Fenway Park

The Boston Police said in a statement that there was no threat to any venue in the city, including Fenway Park.

"We are aware of the information of the press and are in contact with our federal partners", responded a spokesman for the Chicago police, Anthony Guglielmi, in a press release. The rooms were booked for Lollapalooza weekend in two separate reservations; one for an August 1 check-in, and the other for an August 3 check-in.

Sources close to TMZ confirmed that a person under Paddock's name booked the rooms, but never stayed at the hotel. Both rooms had an August 6 checkout and that's when Lollapalooza festival ended, TMZ reported.

The reservation extended across all four days of the event - which drew hundreds of thousands of people including former President Obama's daughters Malia and Sasha.

Meanwhile, Las Vegas police have revealed that Paddock, who killed himself after carrying out his brutal bloodbath, had originally hoped to survive his shooting and flee justice - and likely had an accomplice. The festival was headlined by Chance the Rapper, Muse, Lorde and Blink-182.

The official indicated that Paddock either lost his nerve or changed his plans before targeting a country music festival during the weekend after Life is lovely.

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said security around the city has been "stepped up" in the wake of the bloodshed in Las Vegas, especially given how many major events are going on this week.

The second breach was set off allowing officers to access the second room. Paddock opened fire on a giant crowd at a music festival on Sunday night.
