Stephen Paddock possibly planned attack on another music festival

Lorde concert early US target: reports Las Vegas Shooter May Have Originally Targeted Chance The Rapper Show

It was scary and shocking news to find out about. "As you know this is an on going investigation", said Melissa Warren to the Daily Beast, who first reported that Paddock may have initially targeted the largest festival. This year's Life Is Beautiful lineup included Chance the Rapper, 2 Chainz, Schoolboy Q and more.

An official also confirmed to ABC News that Mandalay Bay housekeeping was asked not to visit Paddock's room during the last leg of his stay.

At this time, it's not clear if it was a thwarted attempt to commit an earlier attack or a dry run as part of his meticulous planning for the Route 91 Harvest Festival attack.

According to a senior law enforcement source who spoke to the Daily Beast, Stephen Paddock rented multiple condos overlooking the annual Life Is Beautiful Festival at the Ogden Hotel. It should be noted that their source isn't directly involved in the case but has been updated throughout the investigation process.

"The source suggested that Paddock may have lost his nerve or simply changed his plans and checked into the Mandalay Bay Hotel on September 28", the Daily Beast reported. Law enforcement is still unsure why he changed his plans but they did suggest that it may be because he "lost his nerve" or just changed his mind.

The Las Vegas shooting has stirred up a lot of conversation surrounding gun control.

Police say Paddock gunned down 58 people from a perch high up in Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Sunday night, which is now the deadliest shooting in modern USA history.

A rep for the owner said, "We're not in a position to confirm or deny anything about Mr. Paddock's dealings". But a week later, he rented two rooms at the Mandalay Bay and opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest festival 32 floors below, killing 59 people and injuring hundreds more.

With new information being revealed daily, we continue to keep the victims and the families of those affected in our prayers and thoughts.
