Valhall ~ and everyone else -
Good questions... I've got a few too, more on that in a later post.
1. I would venture to say that 100rd. drum by all likelihood jammed in the theater, and the shooter knew it early on. So he ditched it there, and
managed to grab at least one or more
(full number unknown) 30rd magazine.
(see also #2)
Some easy searching on the web, and there are many reviews of those drums jamming and or just being a pain in the snip. From what I gather, the entire
thing needs to be disassembled to be cleared of said jam, and to be reloaded.
2. Whether he exited the theater to retrieve gear from his car is also unknown right now, but I do recall an article with a witness who said that they
thought he left to reload or something. I need to find and confirm that one, as it could help explain your oddity #1 and #2.
3. I'm curious of that too... according to the CNN released police log - there is this tidbit:
01:05:14 get us some damn gas masks for theater 9 we can’t get in it
01:06:14 16 I need a marked car behind the theater stable side,suspect in a gas mask. 01:06:22
01:06:50 everyone hold the air one second, cars where that white car in the rear of the lot, is that a suspect? YES! we've got rifles, gas masks, you
can see him ive got a open door going into the theater, OK hold that position, hold that suspect! 01:07:05
Rifles, and gas masks.... plural?
And he was just chilling by his car?
Call me crazy, but early on ... wasn't there a report of a second Glock in the car, and also a helmet and gas mask? If so, that means he at least
for someone to else to go with him.
Oh, also -
Said car has the rear passenger window broken in what appears to be an inward direction.
Front passenger window is either shattered also, or conveniently rolled down.
Rear hatch was held down with black electrical tape.
As seen in this photo.
Just some observations.
