Evidence the massacre still frozen in time it doesn't look so much that there was a concert there are put that a tornado swept through there. Or preferred lawn chairs we've seen strollers there we see walkers there. Evidence of just the salute. Chaos and we are learning that Steven attic may have scouted other targets as far away as Boston and Chicago. According to sources briefed on the investigation he booked rooms at Chicago's Blackstone hotel in August. The same dates as the Lollapalooza festival right across the street in grant park. About a 100000 people attended each day that static never checked in. Law enforcement sources also tell us he's boat shoes he Google search for who kills around Fenway Park in Boston. That ball parks capacity. Nearly 38000. People. But no evidence he traveled to Boston either. Instead he stayed close to home pulling up at one of the casinos he knew so well looking down on that helpless crowd. And finally story after story about the Vegas shooting continued to emerged. Alex Stone is on the ground and continues covering for us to. They have stories says said they knew the gunfire was coming from their building they didn't know where they didn't know the governor is gonna come out and search shooting at them.

And they're being normalcy will describe what's happening on the strip these days. Well it depends on where you are the the people of Vegas they they do what they do best and that he's Serb terrorists and so they're putting on smiles on their faces and air catering to the bachelor parties into the corporate events that are coming and those aren't stopping those are continuing on the bars are open the show is there are producing shows. But DC's hurts it right now this is it the area right now on Monday of this site is beyond the welcome to Las Vegas nine native leads to mentally today. They're now 58 crosses sitting on one for each of the victims who fell on Sunday night. Attached to each one there's a rat art the base of many of them there are candles that are flickering right now and need the early morning darkness and now people are coming here.

As they're still catering to those who were coming and now the investigation into Stephen Hannah is continuing. Including yesterday this new information it. He might have looked for. Other music festival's other large events around the country. Yeah absolutely so we know from investigators sources docking to arrested that he apparently. I rented a hotel room I'm right along the edge of grant park in Chicago like during Lollapalooza. In August. I'm and they think that he may have been looking at that and then they go from his cell phone that he was searching hotels booking in that Fenway Park in Boston might. I'm no sign it the ever did anything that because there are no hotels that look into Fenway Park with though Lollapalooza hotel he never showed up and projected. But he did get a a week before the shooting here he got a Condo in Vegas overlooking the light these beautiful festival 200000 people landed. We don't know nobody knows why eating carried out there was that he now like that the way to Rome was racing they think he was too exposed and could have been shot by police officer very early if there are high rises right there. I did something's broken undated the nerves get them. They don't know any Maybin is doing reconnaissance and with all of this planning did to watch human behavior he was an accountant is buried at the tail he took his time with this. But for whatever reason he decided on that night. During the country music festival here that he would carry out his attack. That's 930 in 716.
