Watch the cab video 3 times and it is fascinating, how does the shots go from from loud short burst to farther away then back to loud.
Someone needs to have a word with his brother as well. There is footage doing the rounds of the perpetrators brother, looking dumbfounded and saying all the right words... Something feels off though. There is something about the way his eyes move when he is speaking that sets my spidey sense off. Cannot put my finger on it precisely, but its enough to make me think "Does he know more than he is letting on?".

here is another flash video from a cab driver pulling out. it also appears to be coming from the lower floors.
start at the :50sec mark, if you run it at 1/4 speed you can see it better.

In just that one particular window? In time with the gunshots? And what stage lighting flashes like a strobe for that length of time? You'd have folk having seizures! lol plus there were no flashing stage lights in any of the videos I've seen at the time of the shooting
The sound echoes reflecting off that glass, in time with the shots fired, could make a solid light source seem to flash in time with the gunshots. The windows are mirrored windows, and would act as such from vibrations.

Like the m16 have them things call flash suppressors, and there is also that thing called barrel rise from recoil.
Fast rate of fire doesn't equal aimed rate of fire.
Reason being bursts of light gives away your position to the enemy.

As a Vegas resident, I must say that I am so proud of this town for banding together like we did. There were so many people donating blood that news stations actually said donation centers were asking people to stop coming down and rather make appointments.
The owner of the company I work for offered all employees a paid day off if they went to donate blood, and I heard many similar stories of other companies.
The local stations didn't politicize anything (that I saw or watched) and while offering solace and mourning, kept the broadcasts more focused on positivity, unity, and comradery.
Uber in Vegas offered free rides to anyone going to donate blood, along with several individuals in the community doing the same.
As sad as this event is, I'm very proud of my city today.

Here is a video of an M16 in full auto mode. Notice the soldier is shooting in bursts, even though he has weapon in fully auto mode. The most he is shooting is 3-4 shots. the M16 also has a burst mode which shoots 3 bullets at a time. But you can hear this soldier shoot at least 2-3 times with 4 bullets.
Wow that cab video is something else.
Absolutely was shooting from very low like the driver pointed out.
