What's with the video of the Bellagio with the women talking the night of the Vegas shooting?

Was there some incident there too?

NO!!! You are posting something like this almost three weeks from the date it happened? Where you been the last 3 weeks?

Some of the victims walked from the shooting site to other hotels. so that is the confusion.

Let's apply some common sense. Its been almost 3 weeks, don't you think this would of made the news by now IF it were true.

Panic happens! There were reports from all over that end of the Strip. Partly because so many of the victims escaped and ran to casinos nearby for help. Gunfire echos and it's hard to know exactly where it is coming from when there are tall buildings around. If you listen to the videos that include the sound of gunfire you would be hard pressed to know exactly where it was coming from. I was listening to dispatch when it happened and there were reports from all over.

This is exactly what happened^^^

Some victims made it to other properties before collapsing, passerbys assumed the injured where shot on site. This is one of the reasons there were multiple reports initially of shootings at various properties on the south end of the Strip...it was mass chaos.

everyone posting about "panic" is complete misinfo. it takes over 30 minutes to walk from mandalay bay to bellagio, why would anyone run for 30min down the strip out in the open when you don't know where the shooting is coming from, it makes more sense to take cover. Also there were reports of shooters at the bellagio from bystanders and the police, so why would you run there. Police scanners said there was a man who walked into the bellagio with a rifle. The woman who recorded the video in the bellagio said she heard gunshots and thats why her husband through her to the floor, it is impossible to hear gunshots 2 miles away when you are inside a casino.

#1 There was no where really to take cover at the concert. Do you think people running from the concert were listening to gossip or police scanners as they were running? It's called chaos and confusion. It was the people running away from the concert into other casinos reporting that there was shooting and didn't know where it was coming from. Shouldn't even bother replying to a one poster.

It was one guy. A fat old fart with a case of rage and entitlement. He had access to lots of weapons, and cash, and was clever enough to know how to set up a killing field without drawing attention to himself.

The chaos on the scanner was due to the mass confusion. False reports coming in and whatnot. Something similar happened with the Costco / Metro shooting.

We got our wounded to the hospitals by any means necessary. We raised millions of dollars for the wounded and the families of the victims. The commmunity donated mass amounts of blood. Now, it's time to bury our dead.

Let this conspiracy theory be amongst them.
