REPORT: Las Vegas Gunman Had Booked Hotel Rooms Overlooking Chicago’s Lollapalooza But Never Showed

CBS News reports:

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock reportedly booked two rooms at a hotel overlooking Lollapalooza two months before the massacre outside the Mandalay Bay Resort.

TMZ reports Paddock booked one room at the Blackstone Hotel, 636 S. Michigan Av., for Aug. 1 through Aug. 6. He later booked a second room for Aug. 3 through Aug. 6, the same days as Lollapalooza in Grant Park.

The Blackstone, a 21-story hotel, has windows overlooking Grant Park, including the stages where bands performed at Lollapalooza. An estimated 400,000 people attended the four-day music festival in August. According to TMZ, Paddock never showed up at the Blackstone.
