According to some of the media reports about Paddock's potential target list, Paddock could not find a clear line of sight into Fenway Park from a nearby hotel. Per NBC, police and Boston officials don't think Paddock booked a room near Fenway.

Boston and the Red Sox are increasing the security at Fenway Park due to reports that have surfaced linking the Las Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, to Fenway. The FBI has requested all inquiries be referred directly to them.

The Red Sox said in a statement that they have been told there's now no credible threat to Fenway Park.

Gov. Charlie Baker reiterated that there is no evidence of any threat to MA at the moment and that Las Vegas officials are the primary source of information.

UFC 216 breakdown, betting odds and picks
On a five-fight winning streak in the UFC's most competitive division, he has worked his way to the top to challenge for UFC gold. I think the first round is going to go awful for him, the second round is going to go bad for him, all the way through the fifth.

"The investigation is being led by the folks in Las Vegas, and we're in constant conversation with the fusion center here in MA, which is in constant contact with them", Baker said. Days after the incident, there are still more questions than answers, but recent updates from investigators and law enforcement have provided chilling details into how the horrific incident was carried out.

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Baker said the state has been in "constant contact" with federal law enforcement partners and he's "aware of the media reports, but because it's an ongoing investigation I am not going to speak any more to it than that".

The horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas resulted in 59 people killed and over 500 injured.

CBS News has reported he did scout other hotels and concert venues in the Las Vegas area, looking to book specific rooms.
