FBI Investigators Examining 2nd Vegas Shooter Angle Ordered to Stand Down
TruePundit.com ^ | January 13th, 2018 | Investigative Burea

The hunt for a second or third gunman in the Mandalay Bay Massacre in Las Vegas appears to be over, at least as far as the FBI is concerned. Whether premature or not.

FBI officials told True Pundit late Thursday the focus of the case now is zoned in solely on Stephen Paddock as the lone gunman, per a directive from FBI headquarters in Washington D.C.

The directive came as a shock, as FBI insiders said they were pursuing leads that while Paddock was sniping innocent victims from his 32nd-floor perch at Mandalay Bay, another gunman wielding an AR-15 5.56 caliber weapon was closer to the ground shooting from another angle.

FBI officials said they were following the hunch based on forensic examination of audio recovered from phone video of concert goers.

From those videos, federal law enforcement sources said the were following leads that indicated in addition to Paddock’s gunfire from the Mandalay Bay — where he was likely using an AR-10 rifle based on audio examined — additional gunfire from an AR-15 rang out at the same time from an opposite position on the ground much closer than Paddock’s location from high above the event.

Well, articles like this will certainly reboot the efforts of those convinced of a “dark conspiracy/coverup” of a nefarious government operation that covered up the real target with multiple victims.

AR 10 is .308, not 7.62.

some times there is a conspiracy....I strongly suspect that this story is very close to what happened.

There is a cover-up that seems rather obvious to me. What makes you believe there isn’t?

Didn’t he use several guns?

I remember reading that some jammed so he started firing others he had.

Sorry but audio is affected by the direction of the shot, vertical angle of shot, barrel length, flash hiders or muzzle brakes, action type, powder type, bullet weight, echos, from enclosed room or not, and about 10 other factors much more than caliber/weapon model.

One does not tell the type of weapon used by some audio recorded in a phone booth.

.308 and 7.62x51 NATO are effectively the same round.

P.S., nothing personal, but True Pundit is nothing but a bad BS click bait site.

Be well.

Yeh since the FBI was using Paddock to operate a gun running sting. LOL!

If the bodies featured radically different wound channels and especially if they still contained different bullet calibers, that might explain why, as Laura Loomer has reported, the Las Vegas corner turns out to have autopsied only 40% or so of the bodies.

I doubt they were ordered to stand down. Misinformation.
