"I think we need to keep calm", former Boston police Commissioner Ed Davis said, "and carry on".

"The Boston Regional Intelligence Center is in contact with our local and federal law enforcement partners here and in Las Vegas and continues to monitor the situation", the department said in a statement.

The gunman who fired on a crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas scouted locations in Boston and Chicago, according to a report from NBC News. This official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, did not know if Paddock was actually ever in Boston and they didn't know when that search was done.

But William Evans said Thursday he could not confirm the report and had not been briefed on the matter. He also says police plan to meet with officials from hotels in the next couple of days to discuss ways to increase security.

"We are aware of the media reports".

But the team said it's working with officials to beef up security for post season games. The FBI has requested all inquiries be referred directly to them.

ABC News reports that there is no indication that Paddock traveled to Boston despite internet search for hotels near Fenway Park. It was a week ago today that Stephen Paddock checked into the Las Vegas hotel that overlooks the area where a country music festival was about to take place.

Where other mass killers have left behind a trail of plain-sight clues that help investigators quickly understand what drove them to violence, the 64-year-old shooter had almost no close friends, social media presence or other clear connections to the broader world. Some of those resources will be seen and some will be undercover, the official said.
