Did they go out on Saturday to practice shooting with bump stocks, adjust their vertical fore grips, and get used to the sights? #LasVegasShooting
There's an open shooting range just 16 miles from the Mandalay Bay. It's really just open desert where people go to shoot automatic weapons and blow up tannerite and stuff like that. #LasVegasShooting

It's so secluded that in recent years there have been incidents of MS13 gang members ambushing people who are shooting out there, and robbing them of their guns. #LasVegasShooting

Paddock might have known about this place, because from 2003-2010 or so (prior to the robberies), he lived only 9.9 miles away from it. #LasVegasShooting
The 14 AR-15s that Paddock brought all had bump stocks and vertical fore grips, and 6 of them had EOTech sights like this, which are for close range combat or hunting. The other 8 had no optics. #LasVegasShooting
You might think he just brought guns with whatever sights he had, but there are a couple of things that indicate the short range EOTechs were brought for a purpose, and were paired with the bump stocks on the cheaper AR-15s. #LasVegasShooting
The first is that he ordered an EOTech 512 A65 Tactical Holographic sight from Amazon on Sept. 7th, just 24 days before the shooting. That was probably his 6th and final EOTech purchase. #LasVegasShooting
Second, he left five AR-15s with long range scopes at home, and none with the EOTechs. In fact, he didn’t bring any AR-15s with regular scopes, he left them ALL at home, and brought all of the AR-15s with EOTechs with him. #LasVegasShooting
So I think in the original plan, the 7 rifles with long range scopes were intended to be used from the windows, while the ones with short range optics or no optics at all, just bump stocks, were intended to be used like a turkey shoot at street level. #LasVegasShooting
That implies 14+ accomplices, and they'd want to get used to the bump stocks and EOTechs, and adjust the fore grips to the length of their individual arms. #LasVegasShooting
Which brings me to a curious report I came across in the police logs. It's on PDF 12, pg 146. A silver Jeep Cherokee pulls up to a 7-11 at 10:55pm on 10/1 and leaves a pallet with gun range targets attached, all shot up, right at the front door, then leaves. #LasVegasShooting
Best explanation I came up with is that they wanted the police to get it, but they didn't want to turn it in themselves, probably because they are guilty of something. But the implication is that someone went shooting out in the desert. #LasVegasShooting
They redacted the address of the 7-11 at the top, but they accidentally left it in at the bottom. Here's where it is, 4 miles from Route 91. #LasVegasShooting
7-Eleven has footage of the drop-off, and the LVMPD took the targets, the pallet and any bullets lodged in it as possible evidence at 10am on 10/2. The end. #LasVegasShooting

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

"Josep.."-On PDF 11, pg 108, a Mandalay Bay security guard recounts "15-20" people being evacuated from Paddock's hall… #LasVegasShooting
That began shortly after 10:41, and took less than 10 minutes. They didn't evacuate all the way down to Paddock's room. For example, the room right next to 32-134 didn't get evacuated until after they breached the suite, because they didn't want to get too close to Paddock's door
It's unclear how many names they wrote down, and if those names were even real names. When they interviewed the security guard who was supposed to be writing down names, he said "Well I got some of 'em." (PDF 9, pg 29) #LasVegasShooting

In 2016, right after moving into his new house in Mesquite, Paddock had a neighbor named Rick. Rick was an ex-Marine, and Rick and his friend Steve would go to the corner bar after work, where Paddock would be sitting at the bar playing bar-top video poker… #LasVegasShooting
Rick and Steve played video poker too, and drank beers with Paddock whilst making small talk. During this small talk, Rick told Paddock that he'd been in the Marine Corps, and they even talked about guns, but strangely, Paddock never mentioned that he owned even a single gun...
Paddock never talked politics with Steve, until one day when Steve came in wearing a Trump shirt. This was before Trump was even the official candidate, months before the election. During small talk about the t-shirt, Paddock said he was a Trump fan too...

Campos didn't see the room-service cart, he was told by others after the fact that it's how Paddock saw him. But Paddock also had the peephole cam. Why does everyone assume Campos missed the cart when the simplest answer is that it wasn't out in the hallway yet? #LasVegasShooting
That would mean it wasn’t in the hallway when the shooting began, and THAT implies Paddock wasn’t alone. It implies that the 32-134 door was opened after it was bolted at 9:46pm, but before SWAT opened it at 11:30pm... #LasVegasShooting
It implies that Campos interrupted something, which caused the shooter(s) to begin prematurely… which further implies that there could have been a different (more expansive) plan, one which had to be abandoned after shooting at Campos down the hallway... #LasVegasShooting

"While Jake Owen was playing… Hispanic female in her 50s and male in his 20s… stated "there are people all around and you're all going to die." –Officer J. Williams, Homeland Security Division, PDF 15, pg 35 #LasVegasShooting
Officer Williams then went to the Live Nation Command Post and viewed footage of "the female who made threats prior to the shooting… and forwarded to Counter Terrorism." PDF 16, pg 149 I wonder if she was identified. #LasVegasShooting
"2 women on the hay bales,on highest pile holding cell phone up: "These stupid f-ing 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?" tl.gd/n_1sqhprt #LasVegasShooting

Could "____ as ____" be an accomplice? #LasVegasShooting
PDF 17, pages 13 & 14 are the statement of Officer K. Parenteau, who from the time he arrived on-scene until he was released at 5:40am the morning of 10/2, had the duty of calling back people who had called 9-1-1 and may have more information.
One of the people he called back was Marilou Danley's ex-brother-in-law, who had called to give the police the phone # of someone he obviously thought might be involved. For some reason, he must have immediately thought of this person when he saw the news, and called in the tip.
