Vegas Hotel Worker Warned Police Of Shooter Before Massacre Began


In one of the most shocking developments to emerge in the week-and-a-half since Stephen Paddock killed 59 people and wounded more than 500 others during the worst mass shooting in US history, NBC is reporting that a maintenance worker said Wednesday he told hotel dispatchers to call police and report a gunman had opened fire with a rifle inside Mandalay Bay before Paddock began firing on the Harvest country music festival below.

Worker Stephen Schuck told NBC News that he was checking out a report of a jammed fire door on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay when he heard Paddock shoot security guard Jesus Campos in the leg. After the shooting, Campos peeked out from an alcove and told Schuck to take cover.

[...]


According to the official timeline, Campos was injured at about 9:59 p.m. Six minutes later, at 10:05 p.m., Paddock fired the first shots on concertgoers.

A police SWAT team got to the 32nd floor at 10:17 p.m., and a minute later learned that the security guard was hit and where the shots were fired from.

Sufficed to say, any time I ever had to go in that region of the city again I was armed (without regard to the local bylaws) and I made sure the criminals knew it.
So, how does someone do that?

Did you issue a press release to all the nearby crooks? Keep yelling "I'm packing heat"?

Timothy McVeigh was a terrorist and he was white. The IRA bombers were terrorists and they were white. The reason why is because they fit the very definition of a terrorist. Until the motives of the Vegas shooter are identified all we can of him is that he was a sociopathic mass murderer.

The US has already moved past this story and forgotten about it as just another regular mass shooting

Instead of how, why it happened, it's gone to liability issues with hotel and police blaming each other for lack of response

No thoughts on how the guy could legally amass firepower for a small militia and have full automatic weapons and buy limitless rifles and ammo

It's on every major news outlet's front page, as I just showed a few, you may be able to lie to yourself, but not me. (/inb4 another "media has moved on" post)

As for why they aren't devoting all this extra attention to fearmongering speculation when an investigation is ongoing.. it's because what's the point? You can clearly do it all on your own without their help.

Okay so if Bruce is homeless and squatting in a business......Why did Stephen help Eric retire and get a nice home and all....but nothing for Bruce? What is the relationship between the 3 of them? Maybe Bruce didn't want any help so they left him as is?
