LAS VEGAS, Nevada (PNN) - November 24, 2017 - An eyewitness who was riding in a taxi saw several gunman firing full-auto bursts at the corner of Mandalay Bay Road and Las Vegas Boulevard at 9:50 p.m., ten minutes before the shooting officially started.
The man said that he was up in the Delano hanging out with some friends on the night of October 1 when a female friend of his decided to go meet up with some other friends of hers at another location.
“She got picked up in an Uber down at the Delano valet,” he said. “She called me about five minutes later and I know the exact time she called because the timestamp is still on my cell phone - she called me at 9:55 pm,” he said.
“As soon as I answered she (told) me that there are shooters on the ground down in the street,” he explained. “Las Vegas Blvd. was full of traffic so she hadn’t made it very far.”
The man said that the woman’s Uber ride had just turned onto the boulevard when she told him that she saw several gunmen.
“When she first called to tell me what she was seeing I thought she was joking but then I heard gunshots,” the woman’s friend explained. “It sounded like automatic gunfire.”
The man also noted that his friend told him that the armed men did not appear to be terrorist pig thug cops.
The man’s testimony is extremely alarming because the shooting did not officially start until 10:05 pm.
Additionally, it is important to point out, on Oct. 14 shooting survivor Rick Ardito, during a phone interview, said that the “firecracker sounds” heard by various witnesses inside the concert venue before the shooting were, in fact, actual firecrackers (i.e. Rick Ardito visibly saw the firecrackers detonating in the crowd just feet in front of him).
However, what’s to say those firecrackers weren’t used as a diversion to mask the sound of actual gunfire?
Not to mention, at least one terrorist pig thug cop reported hearing gunfire coming from the very same intersection where the woman witnessed the gunmen.
