Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock booked hotel rooms overlooking major concerts, including Lollapalooza, in the weeks before he killed at least 58 people at one, according to reports.
The 64-year-old mass murderer used Airbnb to book a room at The Ogden during the three-day “Life is Beautiful” festival, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
The concert, which ran from Sept. 22 to 24, featured Chance the Rapper, Lorde and Blink 182.
Paddock rented three rooms in total at the 21-story Las Vegas hotel over the course of a week. It wasn’t clear if he was scouting out the concert grounds where a week later he would fire hundreds of bullets at a crowd of 22,000.
“We don’t know yet,” Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo reportedly said Wednesday of Paddock’s stay.
The first room was rented from Sept. 17 to 22, the second from Sept. 21 to 23 and the third from Sept. 24 to 28, the newspaper reported.
He checked into the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort on Sept. 28, where he would stay until Sunday night’s massacre.

How Paddock spent his final weeks is slowly beginning to come together.
Just weeks earlier, he booked two rooms at Chicago’s Blackstone Hotel that overlooked the popular Lollapalooza festival, TMZ reported Thursday.
His reservations started on Aug. 1 and 3, the day the show started, and lasted until it ended on Aug. 6.
But Paddock never showed up, TMZ reported, despite asking for rooms that overlooked Grant Park — where 400,000 concert goers including Malia Obama converged this summer.
The Blackstone directly overlooks Lollapalooza’s mainstage as well as a few others.
He also scouted a location in Boston, NBC News reported.
Paddock also sent longtime girlfriend, Marilou Danley, to the Philippines out of nowhere.
“She didn’t even know that she was going to the Philippines until Steve said ‘Marilou, I found you a cheap ticket to the Philippines,’” one of her sisters, who spoke anonymously, told Australia’s Seven News.
“She was sent away,” the woman continued, “so that she will not be there to interfere with what he’s planning.”
Danley, who arrived back in the U.S. on Wednesday, said via her attorney she knew nothing of Paddock twisted plans.
Paddock, a wealthy high-rolling gambler, also wired $100,000 to a Philippine bank account in the week before the shooting, NBC News reported.
