Last weekend, chaos, devastation and death descended upon the Las Vegas strip. It was during a country concert venue outdoors on the strip when a gunman opened fire on the crowd of more than 22,000 people. So far, 59 people have died (including the killer) and more than 500 others are hurt from gunshot wounds and/or from being trampled.
Stephen Paddock has been identified as the killer and he shot himself before police could reach him.
But eyewitnesses have revealed that a Hispanic couple warned the crowd of the impending massacre.
According to a report from the Star, an eyewitness claims that a Hispanic couple was escorted out of the festival for disrupting the people around her.
Apparently, the couple was telling a woman in front of them that they were all going to die. It is unclear whether or not she was trying to warn the concert-goers or if she was a part of the attack.
The woman was allegedly extremely disruptive and was harassing those around her so the security guards had to escort her and a male companion out.
About 10 to 15 minutes later, gunshots began to ring out around the venue and many people thought it was pyrotechnics or fireworks before fleeing on foot, leaving many injured and trampled.
The man and the woman have been described as Hispanic, short, around five foot five inches, and they were described as looking like ‘everyday people.’
The eyewitness in an interview said: ‘she had been messing with the lady in front of her, telling her she was going to die, that we were all going to die.’
‘So they escorted her out to make her stop messing around with all the other people in front of her. But none of us knew it was going to be so serious.’
Officers stormed Stephen Paddocks’ 32nd-floor room in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino where it has been reported that he had 10 suitcases worth of ammunition and weapons. Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said: ‘we located numerous firearms within the room that he occupied. All’s we know is that they were rifles.’
