The tripods made those weapons very accurate.

Definitely premeditated.


Well yea you generally don't secure a hotel room, carry a couple armfuls of guns to said hotel room, and then start shooting at people a block away at a concert without putting some thought into it.


Yep...shooter had to have planned it well in advance knowing this concert was going on. Heard he was on the 29th floor so he had plenty of height to shoot down from. Guessing he initially shot the window out as these hotel windows don't typically open. Likely brought the guns up a couple at a time after checking in. Had to set up for the shoot which took time too. He knew it would be like a turkey shoot.

One interesting story I read was about a front row concert attendee having an encounter with a lady telling her a lot of people were going to die today and that lady was escorted out by security....wondering if that was the lady they say was with the shooter.

8 rifles were recovered from his room along with 2 tripods so we still dont know what type of weapons they were.

He was in the hotel since, what, the 28th? He could have brought the guns up to his room 1 at a time, disassembled, concealed in bags. Same with all the other gear he had. There is no surprise there. There's no mystery.

It sounds like the guy may have had access to plenty of cash. I only mention this because that would make it possible for him to legally obtain an automatic firearm. However, if it was an auto-weapon used, I still firmly believe it was obtained illegally.

Live press conference now...

3rd one so far.

It's alarming they still haven't cleared all of the areas where there are likely more victims. That means the number will change.

Also, they are saying the shooter was found with 10 rifles.


Hotel room cleaner saw nothing ?

They have her.

They also located the 2 vehicles they were looking for as well.

With the sun now shining on the front of the #mandalaybayhotel we can see two windows blown out on the 32nd floor

So they came separate? I thought they were travel companions or something along those lines.

You can decline room cleaning services in hotels.

I am following news coverage on german tv. There was a gun "expert"(don´t know where all these "experts" suddenly come from, if something happens...) talking about a M-60. I never heared a M-60 live, just in docs or games like Arma3, but wouldn´t a M-60 sound different than what i heard in the videos?

And he said that it is difficult to get these type of weapons. And that they are between 30.000 and 100.000 Bucks. He also said something about metal detectors in the hotel and that it wouldn´t be easy to smuggle in a whole arsenal of firearms, as reported.

But on the other side, before hours it was said that the shooter killed himself. Then, for hours, the las vegas sheriff acted as if the police took him down. Now again the shooter killed himself. And what about his wife/partner? Here they say that she has been "located", nothing else.

That picture makes it seem like there was more than one room the shooter fired from. I mean, the windows are awfully far apart. if it were the same room, it must have been huge.

Trump will be speaking about this at 1030 ET.

Some sources are reporting an FBI source saying the shooter may have had politically "Radical leanings". Unconfirmed, and hard to believe.

Yea, I'd drop that discussion. Open another up if that's what you want to talk on.

Understand what each forum is for. Don't make rookie mistakes!

No idea.. Just repeating what was stated earlier in the thread when this stuff started. They were looking for the female and 2 cars. They found them but no idea where.
