A hotel receipt has raised questions about whether the Las Vegas gunman was alone in his hotel room

A police official confirmed Thursday that Stephen Paddock, 64, booked a room at the Blackstone Hotel the same week the annual music festival was held.

According to TMZ's sources, Paddock simply never showed for his reservation at the hotel.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Paddock rented several rooms at The Ogden hotel overlooking the Life Is Beautiful festival in downtown Las Vegas a week earlier.

Mr Paddock died in the room from which he committed the shooting, believed to have shot himself.

People stop at a makeshift memorial near the site of Sunday night's mass shooting, along the Las Vegas Strip, October 4, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The outlet also noted that 400,000 people, including Malia Obama, attended the event in total over four days. Nearly 25 were at the hotel room in Mandalay Bay Hotel.

Garzon said they warned him if they had to contact him a third time, his guests would have to leave. TMZ published what is supposedly a picture of a computer screen in the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago showing Paddock's reservation. "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 horrible like this was going to happen".

Authorities are looking into the possibility Paddock was planning additional attacks.

In the statement she said she knew Paddock as a 'gentle' and 'quiet' man and when he wired her $100,000 she assumed he was breaking up with her.

Just before the shooting, Paddock sent Danley to her native country to visit family.

The sheriff also said there was evidence Paddock planned to survive his killing spree and escape but he did not specify what the evidence was. "He went up there to investigate the open door, and as he was doing his job, he came under fire by our suspect".

Photographer Brandon O'Neal, who was backstage during Aldean's performance, said it became total panic and confusion as the sound of rapid gunfire echoed throughout the venue.
