Thousands Mourn Slain Officer As Las Vegas Probe Goes On

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Investigators are probing the Las Vegas gunman's interest in other music festivals in the months before he killed 58 people and injured nearly 500 at an outdoor country concert.

They say Stephen Paddock rented rooms in high-rises overlooking the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago in August and over the Life is Beautiful festival near the Vegas Strip in September. Boston police say Fenway Park has come up in the investigation but didn't elaborate.

On Thursday night, thousands gathered in Las Vegas to honor one of the victims who was killed, Officer Charleston Hartfield.

Hartfield was also a husband and father of two, and an Iraq War veteran.

His friend Sgt. Ryan Fryman told the crowd Hartfield was "the greatest American I have ever known."
