News: Stephen Paddock searched for hotels near Fenway Park in Boston, senior official says.

The Las Vegas shooter who killed almost 60 people and wounded more than 500 at a concert Sunday reportedly researched locations in Boston.

According to the NBC report, Boston police were aware of the reports and were working with federal officials.

Though there is no evidence yet that Paddock ever actually traveled to Boston, he reportedly researched locations here that held outdoor concerts - such as Fenway Park, which has hosted multiple concerts recently - as well as concerts in Chicago, law enforcement officials told NBC News.

Paddock ultimately chose the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and the Route 91 Harvest festival as the place to carry out his rampage, which killed 58 people and injured more than 500. Malia Obama, daughter of former President Barack Obama, was among the thousands of spectators at the Lollapalooza festival.
