"We are aware of the media reports and are in contact with our local and federal law enforcement partners here and in Las Vegas", Boston Police said in a statement (via CBS Boston).

According to NBC News, who cited "multiple senior law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation", Paddock may have looked into another music festival in Las Vegas and scouted sites in Boston and Chicago, though there's no evidence to suggest he actually traveled to the latter two cities.

Paddock had booked two rooms at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago, across the street from Grant Park where Lollapalooza has been held since 2005, TMZ reports.

TMZ posted pictures that appear to be screen shots of the Blackstone hotel booking computers that show Paddock had the rooms reserved for the August dates. This year the festival began on August 3 and finished on August 6.

Among the attendees at this year's Lollapalooza was former President Barack Obama's oldest daughter Malia, and acts on stage included The Killers, Chance the Rapper, Muse and Lorde.

Police said Paddock, 64, had stockpiled weapons in his Mandalay Bay hotel room.

Under coach Bernie Moore, LSU had employed a single-wing attack, but that called for a tailback who could run and pass. Tittle retired following the 1964 season with 28,339 yards passing, 212 touchdowns and 221 interceptions.

He said Paddock lived a "secret life" and 'meticulously planned on the worst domestic attack in United States history'.

As of Thursday morning, 59 people, including Paddock, had died from the shooting with hundreds more injured.

After the terrible massacre at a Las Vegas music festival on Sunday night that killed 58 and injured hundreds more, concerns emerged immediately about other sites that could be vulnerable to a similar attack. "There is now no known threat to the Metro Boston Homeland Security Region related to this incident".
