HOWEVER... the first burst of gunfire in the Taxi Driver video is CLOSE... like it's right by the driver. There's some echo... and then a long pause of quiet... followed after a time by a distant burst of gunfire that is NOT an echo... and is CLEARLY not in the same location as the opening burst.

It will be interesting to see what he comes up with... There are many people claiming there was more than one shooter to include one of the survivors who insist he was shot from a different location.
One of the victims of the Las Vegas shooting has blown the whistle to reveal that he was shot by multiple gunmen during the massacre.Rocky Palermo was shot by a gunman in the crowd during Sunday night’s mass shooting and says he has the evidence to prove it.He says there were between 3-5 active shooters firing weapons into the crowd and says there was gunfire coming from the ground as well as from above.Palermo was rushed to hospital after taking a .223 round to the pelvis and still has 30-40 pieces of bullet shrapnel still inside his body.Doctors told him the bullet was inches from paralyzing or even killing him.Mr. Palmero confirmed that his injury was caused by an attacker on the ground and that the bullet was fired at him with a horizontal trajectory and wasn’t fired down from above, although weapons were being fired from “all angles”.Oddly, Rocky says he has been trying to contact the FBI to give them his eyewitness account of what happened on that night, but his requests have been ignored by agents investigating the case.
Blast reports: Palermo — an avid hunter familiar with guns and ballistics — says the different trajectories of gunfire was extremely evident, even in the midst of chaos
Just one of many stories and videos saying there were more than one shooter.. I do not know for I was not there (damn glad too).
Having been the News Director and Anchorman at the ABC TV station in Las Vegas for nearly 3 years, I got to know a lot of key people in the city and the gaming industry. I have pretty good idea of how the city works and how it thinks and how it protects 'business' at all costs.
The word I am getting from highly-placed sources now is that every major Strip hotel already has hidden 'backscatter' type X-Ray scanners hidden behind the decor at the main hotel entrances. Personnel watching monitors constantly can see the change in a man's pocket of lipstick in a woman's purse as they enter and leave the hotels of Las Vegas. This was a big secret until one of the major hotel owners let the cat out of the bag a year or two ago. Even most employee entrances and exits are scanned and monitored. Security is VERY tight.
One thing I did hear was there are over 100 Muslims working for the hotel.. That along with ISIS making claims ... maybe nothing or maybe this goes deeper than a lone gunman.. Again I do not know I am just reading and listening and considering.

The only reason this might interest me is that I can see in many of the videos of the shooting that people in the back of the venue are almost uniformly looking at another building (not the Mandalay Bay hotel) and running away.
ETA: Still, I expect more disinfo or misinfo.
Eyewitness reports and perception are not terribly reliable.

Now... on it's face, that doesn't mean 2 shooters. It could mean same shooter, moving from one area of the hotel to the other. But, here's the thing... the door to Paddocks room was screwed shut to prevent outside access. Course, SWAT breached the wall next to the door when they blew it open, because it's so much softer of an access than the door and door frame.
