Foreshadowing: A warning or indication of a future event

Chilling as it is, there were several…

The Bus Stop: "Say a prayer before what's about to happen tonight." 10:03pm, 2 minutes before the attack, and he was looking at the Mandalay Bay while he said it. (PDF 1, pg 44) #LasVegasShooting

Route 91 Entrance: "Be safe tomorrow, I don't want you to get hurt." Said the night before the attack. A man walked up to two ushers working the main gate and said that to each of them separately. (Pdf 26, pg 38) #LasVegasShooting

Hispanic couple: "There are people all around and you're all going to die." Said at about 9:20pm, 45 minutes before the attack, near the front row, during the act just prior to Jason Aldean. (PDF 15, pg 35) #LasVegasShooting

Hay Bales: "These stupid fucking white people, they are going to know how it feels, they deserve this, wait until later. Woohoo, like shooting fish in a barrel. Are you getting this baby? I love you." (PDF 3, pg 143) #LasVegasShooting

That last one was also said at about 9:20pm, 45 minutes before the attack, only at the rear of the venue which was nearly empty by then, while standing atop the hay bales in front of the "Next From Nashville" stage taking cell phone video of the crowd enjoying the show.

The Text: "███████ had received a text message saying there was going to be a shooting." (PDF 15, pg 36) #LasVegasShooting

While that last one may be the weakest because it was hearsay, we know for a fact that there were text messages that night on phones purchased and activated by Paddock, which have never been released. We know this from the search warrant affidavits released back on January 30th:

If any of you know of any other foreshadowing events, please tweet them as replies to this thread, and be sure to include the pdf and page numbers, or wherever you found them. Thanks! The end.
