Ah, that makes more sense.

As I said in an earlier post. There is something not quite right about this attack.
Guy 64, has gambling debts
Who at 64 wants to leave this world this way
Rents a room and he is there for 5-6 days
Has a room mate - what, who & where are they
Couple thrown out of concert for going round telling people to leave or they will be killed 45 mins before shooting starts
Shooting happens to start at the last song
The so called shooter offs himself? Convenient
Multiple gunfire heard in videos
500 shot

Fishy as hell. The truth may be very different from the story given.


This is an odd one - almost as if he may have been coerced but somehow got word to someone to issue a warning without the people holding him finding out?

I'm very highly curious as to the woman who was screaming "you're all going to die" in particular the phrase "THEY'RE all around us"...note the THEY which appears to preclude the single gunman scenario (if she was correct of course) and it doesn't sound like she was the alleged "perps" wife or gf or whoever, but she sure seemed to know something was going on and was going to happen by "them". Seems an odd statement to make. Be interesting indeed to see if any more comes to light about this woman in the near future

Seriously, am I the only one here who knows that gun stores and hotels take credit cards?

Guys, the cost to pull this off is a non-issue.

I have a feeling this woman and her male accomplice will never be located.

To me, it'll be interesting to see what the surveillance inside the hotel shows.

BUT....

Here's an article from 2013 that talks about how few hotels in Vegas have cameras beyond the lobby and casino areas.

That might have changed, and I can't imagine they'd broadcast "hey we installed cameras all over the hotel resident areas" but it's an interesting point.

Please send me a message if there's any confusion about "off topic".

But seeing that this is of general interest:
Posts about political/public figures and what they have to say is fine.
Posts simply bashing said political/public figures and not contributing to the actual topic - not fine.

Any additional questions can be directed at a mod privately.

I find the concept of 2 shooting platforms for 1 shooter to be a bit questionable.

Hopefully we get more(and better) info as this gets pieced together.


Why would it be questionable? Obviously this was well-planned. At some point he figured out that after he shot a certain direction for long enough people would flee so he would have to fire a different direction.

Ever go on a rampage in GTA? How often do you only shoot in 1 direction?


How many directions do the windows in that room face? I'm guessing they are pretty much all in the same direction. Given the elevation and distance to his targets. Moving 12 feet to the left or right has little to no effect on field of view.




Here you can see the fields of view from these 2 windows would be quite different. They are pretty far apart, so he either rented a large suite or he rented 2 adjacent rooms that had those little doors you can go between rooms without going out in the hall. Having been to Vegas (someone correct me if I'm wrong here), the suites tend to be high up in the hotel so you get a nice view for your money, so I'd guess it's one large suite. Obviously the guy didn't have to worry about how much it cost to get that suite.


Is this the room layout? Two rooms?


How much a suite like that cost in Vegas? Just try to put together how much this plan cost him? All the guns, the suite for days, knowing what room/rooms he need for the correct view etc. Hell of a planning for the ordinary 64 years old....


Especially if he took the option for a second room:



Yeah that one works... would be a very expensive option...

Wait, so this guy (and girl?) went to the concert and told everyone to leave or they'll die?

WHAT???

to the poster asking about the girlfriend...the gunmans female companion is "out of the country"

so the gunman had one citation (a routine traffic sitation) and he filed a negligence lawsuit against the comsmi[politan for a fall he took bcause of construction on the floor...suit was dropped by both parties in 2014..retired accountant, pilot liceanses owns 2 planes...his home was nice and clean nothing out of the ordinary

noticed THIS ///// Senior US officials also discounted the Islamist group's statement, with one telling Reuters news agency that Paddock had had a history of psychological problems.

they found other property that they are looking at

I really think that this was a premonition. It was powerful enough to cause a woman and her friends to leave the concert.

Who, at any age, wants to go out this way?

People that are willing to do this type of thing, at any age, have reached a state beyond logic. Trying to apply logic to understand their decisions doesn't really get you anywhere.

On that politicians claims about silencers..

Does anyone who knows about guns more than me know can you effectively put a silencer on an automatic gun of the caliber that people think was used?

Due to the risk of assaults(physical/sexual) and theft I'd assume most hotels would cover main hallways/runways and elevator areas.

Now, the odds of ever seeing it may be slim to none, but I'd assume it would exist.

Pretty convincing from that angle, but will anyone admit this was an Anti Trump protestor, no... I doubt it.
They'll blame a gun instead.

I would say that's a good match. It appears to me to be him and Marilou at an anti-Trump rally. The NASA shirt also adds credibility since he lived on the "space coast" of Florida before moving there.


Not sure - here is the best comparison from the video. Some similar facial structures but can we really be sure????





The mouth is the same.

If it isn't him, that's his doppelganger.



Yeah, the facial structure matches somewhat - hard to tell for sure with one pic in a hat and the other not.

Taking out the hat - still difficult

Silencers can be put on almost any gun. But how long they last or are effective depends on the rate of fire, right? A constant firing could quickly ruin a sikencer.

1. Silencers do no mute the sound, they lower it by about 30 db.
2. running lots of rounds thru one will melt it down quickly.
