I wanted to make a new thread on this, because it would be missed or looked over by most if posted in the thread proposing that multiple shooters were
probably involved, and folks need take this into consideration before going to far with that theory...
The strobing light in the taxi driver's video clip going around, may infact NOT be gunfire.
I was watching the live coverage on FNC early in the morning around 4am EST (AFTER THE SHOOTING), Fox's Adam Housley was the reporter live on the
scene, when one of the in-studio anchors inquired about where the shooter was located. The camera man zoomed into the floors of the casino, where
around the 10th floor or so, you could see a strobing light of some kind flickering in one of the windows, so much so that the studio anchor commented
on what that light could be. I've been looking for this Fox News clip with no luck yet, but I beleive this may be the same light in the video captured
by the taxi driver.
Secondly, and also very important, the windows at the Mandalay Bay, like most Vegas casinos, supposedly do NOT open. This is why the windows that ARE
on the 32 floor have been broken. This would also be true if another gunman was shooting from a different floor. So again, if no windows have been
broken out around the 10th floor, where this strobing light appears, it couldn't have been gunfire... rather the same strobing light seen in the late
night Fox coverage well after the shooting took place. This should be easily confirmed.
As far as the change in direction of the sound of fire heard in the taxi driver's video, I think this can be explained by the two windows that were
blown out on the 32nd floor which were perpendicular and face different directions from the building. The acoustics of the gunfire could change
dramatically depending on which window he was shooting out of.
I agree that this whole thing is fishy as hell, but the taxi drivers video and theories springing up around it are spotty at best.
I'll keep looking for the FNC clip, that again, I watched live at around 4am EST after the shooting took place, but being that it was late night
'filler' coverage before the main early morning shows broke down the coverage indepth, is probably the reason it's hard to find.
