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
Foreshadowing: A warning or indication of a future event
Chilling as it is, there were several… #LasVegasShooting
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

"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

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...

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

"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

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.

@Eric_MA_Peters You mean besides clothes for him and three females, 6,000 bullets, 70 mags, bunch of tools, tool boxes & hardware, 4 computers, 4 phones, Anran home security system "in box", misc. vacuum hoses, snorkel gear, vase and flowers, vibrator, baby monitor, binoculars & spotting scope?
@Eric_MA_Peters I can only speculate what else he might have brought, but here's how I do it. I imagine I'm him. What might I foresee as risks in such an attack? What could I buy that might mitigate such risks? Things that might have been passed out already and therefore not found in the suite.

1/ "Tony"-Pdf 25, pg 21-22 & pdf 5, pg 85; 2 statements from the same Uber driver. 1st @ 12:57AM on 10/2 @ CCAC, and then he gave a longer statement at 3:25AM @ PDHQ on MLK Bl, suggesting he was pretty confident his story was related to the shooting. #LasVegasShooting2/ His story: Fri., 9/29, 7pm, picked up Caucasian man (5’ 9” 190 lbs, black hair) and woman (5’ 4” 120 lbs brown hair) from airport, claimed to be military “from all over” and mentioned that Vegas wasn’t prepared for a terrorist attack like Paris and Belgium.

@Eric_MA_Peters 1/ An arms deal would never include bump stocks. Anyone who knows anything about guns knows bump stocks are toys, gimmicks, used by amateurs, not in assault or combat. I can think of one reason for 14 ARs with bump stocks, and that's a ground level turkey shoot by 14 amateurs.
@Eric_MA_Peters 2/ An arms deal would never include 6,000 rounds pre-loaded. You wouldn't store or transport ammo in mags. 70+ pre-loaded mags means one thing, they were intended to be used on-site.
