Evans said the Federal Bureau of Investigation told him they turned up evidence that shooter Stephen Paddock researched sites in and around Fenway Park and the Boston Center for the Arts. The FBI has requested all inquiries be referred directly to them.

A spokeswoman for the Red Sox said that while there was no credible threat to Fenway, the Sox have been working on increased security measures for postseason games.

Stephen Paddock, the shooter who opened fire at a Las Vegas music festival, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more before killing himself, researched outdoor concert locations in Boston, according to reports.

But just because the gunfire sounded automatic doesn't necessarily mean that Paddock used automatic weapons. Law enforcement continue to investigate what they are calling the deadliest mass shooting in USA history.

Police added that the Las Vegas Metro Police Department is the lead investigating agency, so further information would have to come from that department.

A total of 58, excluding Paddock, were killed and almost 500 people were injured in the shooting.
