20 to 40 killed, and at least 100 injured. I heard on the radio that it was a lone wolf, but in an ABC report 25 minutes ago, a Las Vegas correspondent report more than one shooter. Concert-goers saw muzzle flashes from the upper floors of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, shooting down at the Harvest music festival.
I heard one report of multiple shooters from multiple hotels, but this may be false. The express.co.uk write:
“…the gunman was tracked down to the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay where he was shot and killed… Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) said the suspected gunman is dead but his companion Marilou Danley, an Asian woman who was travelling with the killer before the shooting, is still at large and a person of interest… The suspect has been identified as a Las Vegas resident…”
I was checking a Marilou Danley’s Facebook page — which was suddenly removed.
The Daily Star adds, “They appear to match a description of a couple escorted out the concert shortly before the shooting.” But an account from a girl at the concert said it was a Mexican couple, that were telling concert goers that they were going to die. They were then escorted out of the festival.
There have been several attacks on music festivals and shows — France, the UK and now the US. When is it Australia’s turn? Let us hope not. More information is required to determine whether this is a false flag or not. We will update this post as more information comes in.
There is a plea for video evidence, “Anybody that may have cell phone video or any type of video that would be of benefit to the investigation, please respond to the LVPD HQ and we will take custody of that video.”
LVMPD tweet “At this time there is in excess of 50 deceased and over 200 injured individuals.” and “…we have located the female person of interest.” And this report says the shooter is Stephen Paddock, 64.
59 killed, 527 injured.
Paddocks brother says he had no affiliations — with any organisation. He didn’t even have a parking ticket. But Paddock’s father was once on a FBI top ten list. Benjamin Hoskins Paddock was FBI’s infamous registry from 1969 through 1977 and was described in an FBI poster as being “diagnosed as psychopathic.” His father with several aliases was convicted of bank robbery and auto theft.
“A retired man, Paddock often visited Las Vegas to gamble and take in concerts, his relatives said. Public records show he was a licensed pilot, who owned two planes. And he had a hunting license from Alaska. Paddock’s family said there was nothing in his past that would suggest violence. “We are in complete shock bewilderment and horror… There was nothing secret or strange about him.”
