Las Vegas shooter may have originally targeted high-profile 'Life is Beautiful Festival'

TMZ reports Paddock booked one room at the Blackstone Hotel, 636 S. Michigan Av., for August 1 through August 6.

Paddock fired on a crowd of about 22,000 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, about eight miles down the Las Vegas strip from The Ogden on Sunday, sending concertgoers running for their lives during the mass shooting spree. Lollapalooza draws hundreds of thousands of music fans every year to Grant Park.

Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines days before the shooting, said a USA official who was not authorized to speak publicly because of the continuing investigation, according to the Associated Press. They then breached the door to the second room in the suite, but no one was there, he said.

Also, the weekend before the Las Vegas bloodbath, Paddock rented via Airbnb - and checked into - a condo in a 21-story luxury building in Las Vegas that overlooked the Life is attractive alternative music festival, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Tuesday. That festival featured Chicago's Chance The Rapper, who also performed at Lollapalooza on August 5.

Although the rooms were reportedly booked in Paddock's name, TMZ reported he never showed up for the reservations.

The Las Vegas gunman asked to be upgraded to a hotel room with a "better view" at the Mandalay Bay Hotel (pictured is his smashed room window after the massacre). Officials said 12 of the rifles there were fitted with bump stocks, allowing the guns to be fired nearly as though they were automatic weapons.

Discerning Paddock's motive has proven especially baffling as he had no criminal record, no known history of mental illness and no outward signs of social disaffection, political discontent or extremist ideology, police said.
