The Chicago Police Department says it is aware of the reports of a Stephen Paddock booking a room at the hotel, and the department has been in communication with federal agencies.

Before the shooting took place, Paddock had smashed two windows in his 32nd floor hotel suite - one being in line with the festival site, and the other providing him with a direct line of vision to the fuel tanks.

TMZ says Paddock never checked in to the rooms, but claims he had specifically requested "view rooms" facing Grant Park, where hundreds of thousands of people flocked over the four-day concert.

Paddock's girlfriend, who was out of the country at the time of Sunday's shooting, said she had no idea he was planning an attack.

Although bullet holes were found on the massive circular tanks, the rounds had failed to pierce through, according to the Review-Journal's source who the newspaper said was knowledgeable of the ongoing investigation.

"The hotel directly overlooked the main stage as well as several adjoining stages", the TMZ report states. Lombardo said at a news conference.

It was staged for two days and drew more than 65,000 people.

"They're going to be intermingled with the crowd".

The festival included performances by artists such as Muse, Lorde and The Killers and was attended by former Malia Obama, the former President Barack Obama's daughter.

Their legislation will be focused just on the bump stock tool, but Mr. Curbelo said there are other areas of possible bipartisan agreement over gun laws in the wake of the Las Vegas tragedy. Lombardo said that it wasn't immediately known whether Paddock had planned an attack on that event.

Paddock had 1,600 rounds of ammunition in his vehicle, along with fertilizer that can be used to make explosives and 50 pounds of Tannerite, a substance used in explosive rifle targets. Authorities continue to investigate.

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something frightful like this was going to happen", Danley said in a statement read by her attorney, Matthew Lombard.

Lombardo said he didn't know what Paddock intended with the explosives and wouldn't elaborate on getaway plans.

"We have a lot of work to do", FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told reporters on Wednesday.
