Mass murder in CA. Las Vagas
« on: October 02, 2017, 04:07:20 AM »
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/10/02/las-vegas-shooting-at-least-50-dead-more-than-200-injured-in-massacre.html

The suspect, who was killed, was identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, a local resident.
A gunman turned a Las Vegas concert into a killing field Sunday night, murdering at least 50 people and injuring more than 200 others in the deadliest shooting in United States history.

He shot them from the 32sec. floor.
Several officers down.

Please pray for the families of the fallen, and wounded.

Time will tell.

As a Las Vegas Resident, this has been a nightmare, Total death is 58, total number of injured is 489 (if memory serves) lowered from 527, they in the confusion counted some injured twice, the one officer that was killed, went threw the academy with my cousin, and they where partners for some time, I knew him personally, he was a true good man! I have seen on social media, some are calling this a *FAKE SHOOTING* I assure you! this was not faked! One critically injured, is the brother of high school friend of my wife, He's in a coma still, I personally know about 6 others threw friends and family that know some one injured in this horrific crime.
One thing I don't get is the title?  *Mass murder in CA. Las Vegas*
Must be a typo ?

I hate to admit, I think you're right... We are at war, And now the ANTIFA stating they will start a war on November 4th , starting with 1st responders, We must stay vigilant, we must stay alert, and may we win the day if it so comes!

From other sources including one LVPD officer who responded and has previous experience as an assaulter in some very hot zones before this:

Single shooter--ignore the conspiracy theories. He might have had some help or encouragement otherwise, but there was only one guy that did the shooting.

Most of the injuries are from the panicked movement of the crowd. Most of the deaths do appear to be from gunshot wounds.

It was twenty minutes from first call to first contact by SWAT.

Weapons were high-middle to good quality rifles. At least two with bumpfire stocks. Some Surefire 100-round magazines (one can be seen in a photo of one of the rifles).

Obviously, they're still working up background and digging in and obviously there won't be a lot said officially until they're sure of what they have to say. Most of the speculation going around now is inaccurate.
