Las Vegas terrorist Stephen Paddock may have been planning to strike two months earlier at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago.

He booked a second room for an August 3 arrival.

The Chicago Police Department says it is aware of the reports of a Stephen Paddock booking a room at the hotel, and the department has been in communication with federal agencies.

"On behalf of The Blackstone, we can confirm that there was no guest under that name who stayed at our hotel in August during the Lollapalooza music festival", Blackstone Hotel Spokesperson Emmy Carragher told Fox News in a statement.

USA Today and the gossip site TMZ specifically reported that he reserved two rooms "facing" and "overlooking" the music festival, respectively, during its scheduled dates, though it's not known that he ever checked into the rooms or even traveled to Chicago.

Among the attendees at this year's Lollapalooza was former President Barack Obama's oldest daughter Malia, and acts on stage included The Killers, Chance the Rapper, Muse and Lorde.

The report states Stephen Paddock had booked two rooms at the Blackstone Hotel on Michigan Avenue, one for August 1 - two days before the annual music festival began - and another for August 3, which was opening day.

Police said Paddock, 64, had stockpiled weapons in his Mandalay Bay hotel room.

Police also say Paddock may have planned to escape the scene.

As of Thursday morning, 59 people, including Paddock, had died from the shooting with hundreds more injured.
