Did Las Vegas Shooter Have Bigger Aspirations?

According to reports from The Sun,  Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock could have had bigger aspirations than the shooting massacre of the Harvest 91 Music Festival this past weekend.

According to reports Paddock had made reservations with nearby hotels that coincided with other festivals including the Lollapolooza festival in Chicago in August, and the Life Is Beautiful Festive in Las Vegas.

Detectives also found 1,600 rounds of ammunition and 50 pounds of explosives in millionaire mass shooter Paddock’s personal vehicle, leading them to believe car bombs may have been part of his plans.

We know that Paddock has surveillance set up outside of his room to alert him to when authorities were approaching, which leads me to believe that he may have been planning to escape the Mandalay Bay Hotel alive.

Perhaps his suicide was the only way out he saw as he realized his escape plan wasn’t going to work when the police approached the room.
