A witness told a reporter with KSNV, an NBC Las Vegas affiliate, that a woman warned (or threatened depending on how the statement was taken) that concert-goers at the Route 91 Harvest Festival were “going to die,” just 45 minutes before the shooting rampage from inside of the Mandalay Bay Hotel took place on Sunday night.
According to 21-year-old Brianna Hendricks, a woman at the concert was heard screaming, ‘They’re all around…You’re all going to f***ing die today.” The yelling woman, described as a 5’5″ to 5’6″ Hispanic, was removed from the venue with a male companion, reported the Daily Mail. Hendricks added, ‘She said they’re all around us and we were going to die.’
Over 500 people were injured in the rampage and 59 people died – the shooter, identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside of his room on the 32nd floor of the hotel. Investigators are still trying to find a motive behind the retired accountant’s massacre. Paddock did not have a criminal history and local officials have stated that they would have had no reason to have the man on their radar.
Maddock, an avid gambler, lived in a retirement community in Mesquite, Nevada. His neighbors, and his brother, have expressed complete surprise over the deadly incident and Maddock’s involvement.
