We'll be working closely with the Boston Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police, and all of our law enforcement partners to fully investigate any and all potential leads that stem from the ongoing investigation in Las Vegas.

News reported today that Stephen Paddock, the gunman who killed 58 and injured more than 500 at a country concert on the Las Vegas Strip, did research on hotels and concerts in both Boston and Chicago.

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

Per a press release, "As part of the standard entry screening process in place for all Fenway Park events, fans entering the ballpark will be screened using walkthrough metal detectors, and all bags will be checked by trained security staff".

The Boston Globe, quoting anonymous sources, reported that Paddock may have scouted Fenway Park and other Boston venues before settling on Vegas.

But William Evans said Thursday he could not confirm the report and had not been briefed on the matter.

There is no evidence Paddock ever traveled to Boston.

Gov. Charlie Baker said there is no evidence of an imminent threat that has anything to do with the Commonwealth, and deferred to authorities in Vegas.
