But Evans says the Federal Bureau of Investigation told him Wednesday they turned up evidence that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock researched sites in and around Fenway Park and the Boston Center for the Arts. Paddock likely chose not to make the home of the Boston Red Sox a target because there are no hotels in the area with a direct view of the ballpark. It is not clear which hotels were researched. The FBI has requested all inquiries be referred directly to them.

Boston's K-9 unit, as well as security officers on top of the stadium with binoculars were on hand as well.

Gov. Charlie Baker also responded to the reports, but would not comment on the investigation.

Officials have said there is no credible threat to Boston. He did not, however, travel to Chicago nor did he book a hotel room near Fenway Park. Among the thousands of people who attended the festival was Malia Obama, daughter of former President Barack Obama. He also looked for hotels in Chicago, near the Lollapalooza music festival in August, according to NBC's report, even booking a room at a nearby hotel.

Police said Paddock gunned down 58 people from a perch high up in Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Sunday night, which is now the deadliest shooting in modern US history.

"We'll have some assets on some rooftops up here and you know, there's no threat, but given what happened in Las Vegas, I think people will feel better seeing some security", Evans said.
