  • Police: Vegas shooting probe uncovers Boston references

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter bats in the 1st inning during a game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park in Boston, Sept. 28, 2014. The hotel overlooks Grant Park where the Lollapalooza festival is held each year.

"That's something that obviously concerns us but right now there's no credible threat that anyone is still out there looking to do anything like that", Evans told reporters on Thursday night.

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said he was alarmed by the reports, and said no law enforcement told him Paddock had looked into Boston.

He went out late in the game with an ankle injury, but was cleared for a full practice on Thursday. "We have to get it fixed". He had 64- and 57-yard catches in the first half for two of his three receptions of 50-plus yards in his eight-year career.

Where other mass killers have left behind a trail of plain-sight clues that help investigators quickly understand what drove them to violence, the 64-year-old shooter had almost no close friends, social media presence or other clear connections to the broader world.

Now that law enforcement has had a few days to go through Stephen Paddock's belongings, both from his hotel room and his home, a few more details have emerged.

Paddock, 64, booked a room in a Chicago hotel but did not show up, the officials said.

She exhorted the troops to continue with the same zeal and sense of pride and honour showing due respect to human rights. Two short videos of the meeting were posted on the minister's official Twitter account on Sunday.

The Boston Globe, quoting anonymous sources, reported that Paddock may have scouted Fenway Park and other Boston venues before settling on Vegas.

"There's all kinds of things that surprise us in each one of these events". Just a week before this horrendous Las Vegas shooting, Paddock rented a high-rise condo in a Las Vegas building that overlooked the Life is attractive music festival. City officials are working closely with federal authorities.

There is no indication he ever traveled to Boston or Chicago, the officials said. As the Boston Globe reports, Fenway Park hosts some of the biggest concert venues during the summer months.
