A man who was in the crowd at the 91 route harvest festival claims someone was in the crowd lighting off firecrackers right before the shooting started. The man wrote in a Facebook post that the firecrackers were “either to distract people and make them believe the rest of the popping sounds were fire crackers…or to decoy the Mandalay Bay shooter breaking the windows of the hotel.” The man also says there were 4-5 shooters.
See full Facebook post below:
There was more than one shooter, I believe there was 4-5 shooters and I saw/heard 4 of them and there was one of their men down in the concert who lit fire crackers either to distract people and make them believe the rest of the popping sounds were fire crackers for at least 10 seconds to get more casualties before realizing they were gun shots or to decoy the Mandalay Bay shooter breaking the windows of the hotel without being noticed right away as the fire crackers went off twice because the second time the shooter at Mandalay Bay unloaded his first magazine.
The person who lit the fire crackers was right next to me as it blew my eardrums (right side of the stage facing the stage closer to the front of the stage)
The first shooter was at the Mandalay Bay, then MGM Grand and Excalibur/New York New York and Tropicana. These are confirmed by me personally and the shooter from Mandalay I believe was shooting an LMG with 100 rounds each go.
I will tell my story and hope to get shares and the truth spread as the news is making it out to be ONE shooter.
So Jason Aldean was 5 songs in if I remember correctly and the fire crackers went off in the middle of his performance and people all around us were looking around dazed and slightly confused, then 15 seconds later the fire crackers went off once more (to break the second window where the shooter unloaded his first magazine) I saw the muzzle flashes as soon as the fire crackers stopped and there was a man who tumbled over my girlfriend and I and said there was shots and there was a guy in front of him who died right away. Then more shots started and we all dropped and at that time my girlfriend was frozen and still and had 3-4 people on top of her shot and wounded and possibly dead but I had all my focus on her and I believed at that time I had been shot in the lower back as I had the bleeding sensation and yelled “BABE I THINK IM SHOT WE NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE I NEED TO KEEP YOU SAFE” I pulled her out from under the bodies of people and ran for 5 seconds and then another series of shots came and more bodies went down with wounds and blood was all over the place and even on me at this point. That moment there was 3-5 people I saw completely unresponsive on the ground and even a girl with her head shot and people around her screaming. We got up and ran for around 15 seconds and I continuously checked my back to feel a shot wound and I was under great relief to find that I was not shot before more shots came but since everyone was running towards the entrance the shooter at MGM was shooting as everyone was running towards the entrances to exit. My girlfriend and I kept VERY low the entire time we heard any shot. We ran to the back of the venue and there was an Orange Gate pried up on the fence and people already on it climbing to get over. I got over and they were 2 girls on it who froze and I yelled “COME ON LETS MOVE… DOUBLE TIME!! LETS GO” and they raced up the gate and got over the fence and we proceeded as well and we ran across the street to Tropicana parking lot where more shots from Mandalay proceeded and we hide behind cars in the lot. We all proceeded through a hallway where everyone had their hands up and was proceeding through the hallway and then went into a common area with 3 exit points. One for the pool area where a gentlemen with a black polymer suitcase walked in and I frantically asked if he worked and he was entirely calm and said no and I asked to see what was inside the suit case and he scoffed and said no and another man yelled “YEAH WHATS IN THE SUITCASE IM WITH THIS MAN” and as he started to open the case everyone started yelling in the room where they were escorting everyone and they all scattered and ran through where we entered and there was a man bleeding out and I believe from what I saw he was dead. Unresponsive and on his back with his eyes closed and a pool of blood. I ran outside where the pool area was and my girlfriend stayed back as she froze again, 5 seconds passed as I ran out the door and I didn’t see my girlfriend and I opened the doors and she was on the ground crying and I yelled and told her to come as I ran to grab her we got out and hid in a cabana that was closed and laid on the couch there for 30 minutes and she started throwing up and I kept telling her to keep her down and keep quiet as there was a shooter in Tropicana that was to my understanding still on the loose so we kept real quiet and at this time I contacted my brother to make sure him and his girlfriend were okay which to my relief they were. But we were split and they were too far and I didn’t want to run out in the streets as the shooters were still loose. We then proceeded to an alleyway by the parking structure and saw muzzle flashes coming from Excalibur and New York New York and I pushed her to the pillar and she froze (every time shots went off she froze so I had to help maneuver her into safe positions) we then ran through a hallway and a guy grabbed my girlfriend and said to go down the hallway towards the Tropicana entrance and I was not going inside so we ran around back into the alley where I saw an industrial trash can and told her to jump in first and we laid in there and found cardboard boxes and I pulled them over us to keep cover and we laid there for 3 hours as the helicopters and police personnel were scavenging the area for the remaining shooters they know were involved but don’t want to publicly announce. As we were in the trash can I posted a status on Facebook and contacted immediate family and friends to let them know my girlfriend and I were okay for the time being. We then figured running to Luxor around 1:30-2am would be fine and as we jumped out there was a police who helped escort us to the now locked down with police in tactical gear Tropicana and to escort us into the convention center and they made sure everyone was unarmed and we had water and blankets and everyone was waiting for the police to clear the rooms in the surrounding hotels to allow us back into our rooms. We personally didn’t get released to go to Luxor until 4:20 am and we are now okay. I now have my firearm on my persons and will no longer be attending crowd filled events for the massacre we just lived through was devastating and we all can’t wait to get back home and see our loved ones. My condolences to the families of everyone who lost their lives and couldn’t get a call out to their families and make it back home like we did, I pray for peace and love through everyone’s hearts involved in this massacre and I just wanted to share the truth and my experience as the Lord would want me to.
We are currently at a restaurant and a woman came up to us as we are visually a mess and she prayed for us and we just came to find out she covered our tab. God bless her, we are incredibly grateful for her act of kindness and grateful to be alive and be able to share a real experience as a first person who attended the event this weekend in Vegas.
I thank God for giving me the strength to keep pushing and keep my significant other and I alive as we were entirely as vulnerable as everybody else. God bless everyone who shares this to reveal the experience the news simply won’t be able to share as they don’t want this to seem like a terrorist attack but it was exactly that and the man behind it will be punished and damned to hell for this.
Thank you for reading the entire post and I do want to thank the police officers on site that kept everyone safe from the violent acts that occurred last night. God bless everyone who was positively involved last night as well.
Food for thought:
Las Vegas can’t afford to have people scared to travel the strip since that’s the only entertainment in Nevada. Think about it, why would they scare everyone and confess multiple shooters when they have no clue who the active shooters really were? That would be detrimental for Las Vegas and they will do whatever they can to keep the public at ease from this massacre for the sake of their own State. Think about it, and the white 64 year old man could had been staged as a cover up for the real killers who actually got away with this whole thing, that I know was choreographed from the fireworks alone as the first cue. Please just keep your mind open and wait for more truth to be exposed.
For all the non believers that want the police to tell them. Listen to their radios. It’s the full radio scanner audio so don’t be surprised it’s an hour long and complain. But listen and you will hear what I’ve explained through my experience that I shared that some of you still don’t believe.
