"As you saw earlier this week the city conducts extensive public safety planning and training around major events, in close coordination with our law enforcement partners, to ensure public safety".

But Evans says the Federal Bureau of Investigation told him Wednesday they turned up evidence that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock researched sites in and around Fenway Park and the Boston Center for the Arts.

This news comes on the heels of a report that Paddock tried to reserve a room in Downtown Las Vegas during the Life is attractive outdoor music festival.

Both rooms had a checkout date of August 6, corresponding with the final day of the music festival that drew tens of thousands of concertgoers to Grant Park alongside Lake Michigan.

The gunman, who slaughtered 58 people and injured 489, had allegedly booked two hotelrooms overlooking the festival area where 400,000 people gathered over four days in the beginning of August.

Paddock reportedly requested a room with a view, but never showed up for his reservation, according to TMZ sources. This year the festival began on August 3 and finished on August 6.

The three companies have been asked to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on November 1. Google reportedly uncovered its problem by searching through Twitter data.


Meanwhile, Las Vegas police has revealed that Paddock, who killed himself after carrying out his brutal bloodbath, had originally hoped to survive his shooting and flee justice - and likely had an accomplice.

Lollapalooza is Chicago's premiere music festival held every summer and packs in tens-of- thousands of concert goers who travel from around the world to see dozens of major artists and performers.

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.

Media outlets also reported Thursday that Paddock may have scouted sites in Boston as well.

Officials have said there is no credible threat to Boston.
