TRUMP VINDICATED: Look Where “Relief Supplies” Were Found
October 2, 2017 Mark Prvulovic
https://www.christiannewsalerts.com/look-where-relief-supplies-found/?utm_campaign=CNA_20170715&utm_medium=automated&bt_alias=eyJ1c2VySWQiOiAiMjA0NzVlMjEtYmFkYy00ZGM0LTkxMDYtOTUwZDNlN2Q5MjRlIn0%3D&utm_source=boomtrain
Although Hurricanes Irma and Harvey were less costly regarding death toll and damage thanks to the preparedness of the Trump administration, Puerto Rico wasn’t as fortunate. Instead of blaming themselves, however, some of the leadership of the devastated territory is playing politics instead.

Despite the mayor of San Juan criticizing President Trump for ignoring the suffering of his people, the truth seems to be quite the opposite, according to The Gateway Pundit. American aid is sitting in a warehouse, rotting, and the leaders in PR are so inept that they can’t even get people to the ports to pick up the supplies. The everyday workers aren’t to be blamed. Rather, it’s the managers, leaders, and politicians who should be carrying the responsibility on their shoulders.

Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz had issued an emotional plea for help on Friday, while criticizing Trump’s response to the situation, saying that, “you are killing us with the inefficiency” of the distribution process.

However, it appears the real source of the problem lies at the local level, rather than federal. Drivers from the Teamsters Union are not showing up to work, as they are not permitted to act because the union is on strike at the moment. With only one-fifth of drivers arriving at the ports to distribute the supplies, over 9,500 containers filled with aid haven’t been moved since they arrived.

One person tweeted a lengthy message outlining the situation, saying, “Did mayor of San Juan mention union workers at port are on STRIKE & demanding money first before distributing supplies off boat?”



Colonel Michael A. Valle, the leader of the Hurricane Maria relief efforts, made it public knowledge that the problem isn’t federal, but rather, a problem with local distribution in Puerto Rico. “It’s a lack of drivers for the transport trucks, the 18 wheelers. Supplies we have. Trucks we have. There are ships full of supplies, backed up in the ports, waiting to have a vehicle to unload into,” he said.

“However, only 20% of the truck drivers show up to work. These are private citizens in Puerto Rico, paid by companies that are contracted by the government,” Valle concluded.

Despite there being great need for these goods, there is such a stark deficiency in the logistical support that it’s almost impossible for these goods to get into the hands of those who need them most.

In addition to the shortage of drivers, a diesel crisis is plaguing the island as well. At the moment, distributing fuel across Puerto Rico is FEMA’s number one priority to help relieve the supply bottleneck issue, according to NPR.

Conservative commentator Curt Schilling also acknowledged this fact. “I’ve talked to politicians in both states (Texas and Florida) and the governor of Puerto Rico. All have said that the president did everything in a pace that they’ve never seen before as far as him releasing money and releasing assets into these theaters. The execution on the ground has been horrifying in some cases,” he said.

Puerto Rican leaders are saying President Trump hasn’t sent aid to the island, but they just haven’t unloaded it! Do you think President Trump has done the right thing?

Yes
No

In contrast to the San Juan mayor’s comments, the governor of Puerto Rico ended up praising Trump as well, saying, “every time we’ve asked them to execute, they’ve executed quickly,” according to Breitbart.

As is usually the case, the mainstream media’s depiction is in contrast to the reality of the situation. The Trump administration has done all it can to alleviate the situation; the blame instead rests on the mid and upper-level leaders within the island whose response has been less than stellar.

The Empty Paddock
by Mark Steyn
Steyn on America
October 3, 2017
https://www.steynonline.com/8154/the-empty-paddock

Thank you to the 1,000+ Minnesotans who came out to fill the beautiful Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis last night. I'll say a little more about the evening itself later in the week, but it took place in the shadow of the deadliest single-shooter mass murder in American history less than 24 hours before, and John Hinderaker, appropriately, began the night with a moment of silence for the 59 dead and more than 500 injured.

In my own remarks, I also addressed the carnage. As often in America, it was met with a great deal of heroism by ordinary men and women rising to the occasion: There was, for example, an Englishwoman in a wheelchair who'd been seated on a raised platform so she could get a better view of the concert. If it were every man for himself, it would have been easy to leave her there, trapped on the dais, exposed to the gunman. Instead, as everyone fled, those around her nevertheless carried her to safety and raised her wheelchair over the fence they scrambled over. There were many stories like that throughout the day, far outweighing the grotesque Tweets glorying in the slaughter of presumed Trump voters. Twitter is an idiotic medium, but not, happily, a representative one.

I had thought by last night we would know more about Stephen Craig Paddock. By now the usual social-media non-paper trail and petty-crime police records and mental-health issues have emerged. Instead, nothing has - except some bizarrely distinctive details: He wasn't a loner, but lived with his girlfriend - an Australian citizen currently in Japan, but planning to return to the US today. He was not the usual loser, but a multi-millionaire. He had no apparent interest in guns and no military training, but he demonstrated remarkably lethal proficiency, either with semi-automatics he modified or with a genuine automatic he somehow acquired, a weapon that has been used in precisely three crimes in America since 1934. He didn't "snap", but instead calmly planned his act, identifying and securing the perfect corner suite in a massive hotel and then discreetly moving in dozens of weapons over four days and constructing platforms in front of those two windows.

Some of these quirks do not appear to be particularly consistent, and the Aussie in the adjoining room, for one, says there were "multiple shooters" and "they killed a security guard on my floor". On the face of it, "multiple shooters" would seem more plausible than Isis' claim that Mr Paddock had converted to Islam and changed his name to "Abu Abd Abdulbar al-Ameriki". But, pending any further revelations, it may well be that a wealthy retiree with no interest in guns got sufficiently interested sufficiently quickly to pull off America's all-time deadliest single-shooter massacre: An old dog taught himself a new trick, on a spectacular scale.

As I said on stage at the Guthrie Theatre, I had intended to talk about other matters - about the weekend's latest "vehicle attack" in Edmonton, Alberta, by a Somali immigrant (with an Isis flag on the seat of his car), who stabbed one policeman and ran over four people at Commonwealth Stadium; and about the two young women fatally stabbed (one with her throat slit) at the main rail station in Marseilles, by an illegal immigrant from the Maghreb; and the seventeen-year-old from the northern Caucasus who's just gone on trial in Oslo after being found with a bomb the day after the Stockholm jihad-motorist struck. But all these events, by fiercely committed ideologues in multiple jurisdictions in service of a global civilizational struggle, were all but forgotten, banished to the in-brief sidebars at the foot of page 37 by one apparently non-ideological American retiree who, unlike the aforementioned, was extremely good at killing large numbers of people.

I confess to a certain resentment at this. I regard the Albertan, French and Norwegian stories as far more relevant to where our world is heading. It is not a small thing when a young Frenchwoman can have her throat slit in broad daylight at a major public venue in a European metropolis, notwithstanding that the Mayor of London and others tell us we have to accept that it's now part and parcel of life in a big city. Yet in a certain sense these events are ineffectual - as the corpse count of a Stephen Paddock reminds us. And every Stephen Paddock makes it easier for all those who want to brush off Islamic supremacism and retreat to all those lame-o lines about how you've got more chance of being killed by a toppling household appliance than by a terrorist, and anyway, even when the shooting starts, half-a-dozen Isis cells can't match one white-male gun nut. Why didn't the Somali guy, the North African, the Caucasian jihadist figure out what one 64-year-old from a Nevada retirement community did? That all over the map there are soft targets with large numbers of people penned into small, tight, open-air spaces - and right across the street tall hotels whose upper floors offer easy opportunities for a bloodbath.

We have been, for the most part, very lucky. The foot-soldiers of the jihad are mostly dimwit Mohammedans: they have youth and energy and ideological fervor, but they are also largely stupid and unimaginative. The old guys are less energetic, but also less stupid: if Isis were right and there really were Islamic Stephen Paddocks - 40-50-60-somethings, worldly and full of low cunning - things would be very different.

Consider this year's two pop-concert atrocities: at Ariana Grande's in Manchester, 23 people died - in the cause of the new global caliphate; at Jason Aldean's in Vegas, 59 died - for no reason at all. It is a glum thought, but Paddock's all-time record will likely not stand for long. America's four deadliest single-shooter mass murders occurred in the last decade. Only one of them - the Orlando nightclub massacre - can be said to have a political or ideological component. The rest seem to be a peculiarly contemporary form of narcissism - that, when my life heads south, the only way to give it meaning is to take large numbers of people with me. There is no cause, no fealty, no "Allahu Akbar!" - because pointless slaughter is the supreme triumph of amoral will: Who needs Allah? You're your own Allah. Unlike Manchester or Nice or Paris or Berlin or Brussels, there is no meaning: Indeed, the only meaning is the meaninglessness; that is the point - the black void at the heart of the act.

To reiterate, I regard that Somali guy in Alberta as more relevant to the day after tomorrow, and a man like Paddock as peculiarly depraved, decadent and self-indulgent. But there's no arguing that (even with due allowance for the easier access to weaponry) the latter seem to be far more effective in their evil. In May, Isis called for attacks on Las Vegas - surely an iconic target for Islamic supremacists, but apparently not one they were capable of striking. So it was left to a retired accountant to do it for himself. I wrote in After America that, given the USA's open southern border, the best investment the jihad could make would be to try to convert three or four per cent of Mexicans to Islam. (There's some evidence they're doing that in parts of Latin America.) By the same token, imagine if Isis could really make good on their boasts and convert to Islam a few cool, cold, middle-aged men who over four days calmly walk multiple golf bags across the lobby and press the button for the 32nd floor...

Author canceled Las Vegas Concert — ‘Something Didn’t Feel Right’
Author and police officer Tyler Beddoes found himself on his knees praying on Monday morning after his wife told him about the horrific massacre that unfolded at a country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. Beddoes, author of “Proof of Angels” and “Left Standing: The Miraculous Story of How Mason Wells’s Faith Survived the Boston, Paris, and Brussels Terror Attacks,” said that he and his wife were going to go to the concert, but ended up changing their minds. “Something didn’t feel right about it,” he said. “Something didn’t feel right about going to that and we always go to concerts.” Beddoes and his

family had stopped off in Las Vegas to visit his wife’s relatives before heading to Disneyland in California this week. Initially, Beddoes and his wife planned to go to the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert, but said that an explicable gut feeling led them to head to California early. “It’s just crazy,” Beddoes said of the tragic shooting that left more than 50 people dead and hundreds injured. “I’ve learned to really rely on that inner voice. If that doesn’t feel right, let’s not do it.”

Gut Instinct Keeps Author From Attending Las Vegas Concert — ‘Something Didn’t Feel Right’

Author and police officer Tyler Beddoes found himself on his knees praying on Monday morning after his wife told him about the horrific massacre that unfolded at a country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Beddoes, author of “Proof of Angels” and “Left Standing: The Miraculous Story of How Mason Wells’s Faith Survived the Boston, Paris, and Brussels Terror Attacks,” said that he and his wife were going to go to the concert, but ended up changing their minds.

“Something didn’t feel right about it,” he said. “Something didn’t feel right about going to that and we always go to concerts.”

Beddoes and his family had stopped off in Las Vegas to visit his wife’s relatives before heading to Disneyland in California this week.

Initially, Beddoes and his wife planned to go to the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert, but said that an explicable gut feeling led them to head to California early.

“It’s just crazy,” Beddoes said of the tragic shooting that left more than 50 people dead and hundreds injured. “I’ve learned to really rely on that inner voice. If that doesn’t feel right, let’s not do it.”

Beddoes said he was sickened by the news and that he immediately turned to prayer after his wife told him what happened.

“The first thing when my wife said it, I got on my knees in the hotel room and just prayed,” he said, adding that he wishes he was still in Las Vegas to help out in the wake of the attack.

As Faithwire previously reported, Beddoes first made national headlines in 2015 after a deadly car wreck unfolded on a frigid March day. Beddoes, who serves on the Spanish Fork Police Department, recalled in a past interview with Faithwire how he and three of his fellow cops heard a mysterious voice at the scene — one that, to this day, has no natural explanation.

“We all heard an adult female voice, which was a calm voice saying, ‘Help me, help me,’” he recalled. “This voice really guided us to the car and gave us hope that whoever was calling out was alive.”

But here’s the crazy part: Once the officers reached the vehicle, they quickly realized that the adult female inside had been deceased for quite some time (later, they found out she died on impact 14 hours earlier). That said, the woman’s daughter, an 18-month-old baby named Lily, was still alive — yet unconscious — in the back seat of the vehicle.

Hear him discuss his story below:

Beddoes and his team saved the child, but never solved where the mysterious voice came from. He went on to write a book titled, “Proof of Angels” where he discussed the issue in-depth.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters Monday that ammonium nitrate, a chemical compound used to make homemade bombs was found in the Las Vegas shooter’s car.

Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on concert-goers in Las Vegas, Nev., Sunday night killing at least 59 and injuring more than 500 people.

This is a new discovery in the investigation of the horrific shooting and comes after details emerged of how Paddock opened fire from the 32nd story of the Mandalay Bay hotel at 10:08 p.m. local time, into a crowd of 22,000 gathered at a Jason Aldean concert, and then killed himself. (RELATED: Deadliest Mass Shooter In US History Identified)

Ammonium nitrate is a high-nitrogen fertilizer and was also found in the well-known Oklahoma City bombing in April of 1995 when a truck-bomb explosion blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Okla., leaving 168 people deceased and hundreds injured.

Authorities identified Paddock of Mesquite, Nev., as the suspected gunman in the massacre. SWAT officers found him dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound after breaching the door to his hotel room.

Investigators have yet to determine a motive in the shooting.

As tragedies continue, Only God can heal America
(By Dr. Michael Brown) America is reeling again. Families have been ripped apart and individual lives have been torn apart. One day we’re reeling from devastating hurricanes, the next day we’re torn apart by racial divisions, the next day we’re ripped apart by the worst mass shooting in our history. The pain is palpable, the shock tangible. Can America still be healed? At the time of this writing, no one knows what motivated Stephen Paddock to launch his murderous attack during an outdoor, country music concert in Las Vegas. What

we do know is that he was “one of us” – not a terrorist from a foreign country and, to our knowledge, not shouting “Allahu Akbar” (although ISIS stated that he was a recent convert to Islam and claims him as one of its soldiers). As his brother Eric said, “He was just a guy. Something happened, he snapped or something, he was just a guy. He has no political affiliation, no religious affiliation, as far as we know. This wasn’t a terror attack.” He added, “Mars just fell into the Earth. We’re completely dumbfounded.” READ MORE http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/tragedy-after-tragedy-only-god-can-heal-america/

VEGAS MASSACRE
TRAGEDY AFTER TRAGEDY: ONLY GOD CAN HEAL AMERICA
Michael Brown asserts, 'We need to get on our faces before the Lord'

America is reeling again. Families have been ripped apart and individual lives have been torn apart. One day we’re reeling from devastating hurricanes, the next day we’re torn apart by racial divisions, the next day we’re ripped apart by the worst mass shooting in our history. The pain is palpable, the shock tangible. Can America still be healed?

At the time of this writing, no one knows what motivated Stephen Paddock to launch his murderous attack during an outdoor, country music concert in Las Vegas. What we do know is that he was “one of us” – not a terrorist from a foreign country and, to our knowledge, not shouting “Allahu Akbar” (although ISIS stated that he was a recent convert to Islam and claims him as one of its soldiers).

As his brother Eric said, “He was just a guy. Something happened, he snapped or something, he was just a guy. He has no political affiliation, no religious affiliation, as far as we know. This wasn’t a terror attack.”

He added, “Mars just fell into the Earth. We’re completely dumbfounded.”

And who can imagine the loss and shock of the surviving victims and the families of those killed? Who can make sense of this? And can anyone with a conscience claim that the people mowed down at this country music concert were worse sinners than the rest of us? That they specially deserved to be slaughtered in cold blood? God forbid.

I’m sure that gun control will be a hot topic in the days ahead.

Does the Second Amendment guarantee our right to own assault rifles or machine guns, weapons that can murder 50-plus people and injure hundreds of others in a matter of minutes?

But to focus on this now is to miss the point, just as it was a mistake to focus on questions of global warming during the hurricanes (although these are certainly debates we will have).

No, we must ask bigger questions at a time of such agony: Why are these tragedies occurring? Where is God in the midst of this? How can America be healed?

What do YOU think? How long will the Las Vegas massacre pull America together? Sound off in today’s WND poll

During the devastating hurricanes, some claimed these natural disasters were judgments from God while others claimed that they were the result of man-made global warming. Some even suggested that they we were being judged because we elected Donald Trump as our president (really!).

What I sensed in my own heart as I prayed was the voice of appeal, the voice of mercy, the voice of the Healer ready to mend and restore. It was God saying to us through the storms, “America, you need Me!”

Today, as I look at the bodies of the bloodied victims lying lifeless on the concert grounds, as I see others running in terror and still others falling wounded, I hear that same voice, except this time calling out more loudly, “America, you need Me!”

It’s the same voice I hear as our nation is torn apart by racial strife and division, the same voice I hear as our inner cities are ravaged by gangs, the same voice I hear as baby parts are thrown into dumpsters behind abortion mills.

God is calling out to us, “America, you need Me!”

There is no political solution.

There is no social band aid that can be applied.

Trump calls Las Vegas shooting 'an act of pure evil'

Garance Franke-Ruta
Senior Politics Editor,Yahoo News•October 2, 2017

WASHINGTON — President Trump condemned the mass shooting in Las Vegas in remarks from the White House Monday morning, calling it “an act of pure evil.” He offered words of praise for the courage and quick actions of first responders and sought to provide words of comfort for grieving families.

At least 58 were killed and hundreds injured in the shooting at a country music concert outside the Mandalay Bay casino and resort on the Last Vegas strip late Sunday night, making it the worst mass shooting in the United States in modern history. Trump said he had directed flags be flown at half-staff in the memory of the dead and would travel to Las Vegas Wednesday to meet with law enforcement and victims of the attack and their families.

“I want to thank the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and all of the first responders for their courageous efforts and for helping to save the lives of so many,” the president said. “The speed with which they acted is miraculous and prevented further loss of life. To have found the shooter so quickly after the first shots were fired is something for which we will always be thankful and grateful.”

He offered words of comfort for family and friends of the victims, saying that he and Melania were praying for them.

“Hundreds of our fellow citizens are now morning the sudden loss of a loved one, a parent, a child, a brother or sister,” Trump said. “We cannot fathom their pain, we cannot imagine their loss. To the families of the victims, we are praying for you and we are here for you and we ask God to help see you through this very dark period.”

“To the wounded who are now recovering in hospitals,” he continued, We are praying for your full and speedy recovery. We pledge to you our support from this day forward.”

The president, speaking in measured tones, called for national unity and spoke of the bonds between citizens.

“In moments of tragedy and horror America comes together as one — and it always has,” he said. “We call upon the bonds that unite us, our faith, our family and shared values. We call upon the bonds of citizenship, the ties of community and the comfort of our common humanity.

“Our unity cannot be shattered by evil. Our bonds cannot be broken by violence. And though we feel such great anger at the senseless murder of our fellow citizens it is our love that defines us today—and always will, forever.”

ISIS claims Vegas shooter converted to Islam, Soldier of Islamic State
Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a shooting that killed at least 50 people and wounded over 400 in Las Vegas early on Monday, and said the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago. “The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls

to target states of the coalition,” the group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the U.S.-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East. “The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,” Amaq added.

Breaking: Identity of Las Vegas Shooter Revealed – Here’s What We Know

More than 50 people were killed and more than 400 injured late Sunday night in a mass shooting during a concert on the Las Vegas Strip. Here’s what we know about Stephen Paddock, the man police identified as the shooter:
Paddock, 64, is from Mesquite, Nevada, authorities said. Police believe Paddock may have killed himself just as police stormed his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. From there it’s believed he fired off “hundreds” of shots, targeting a crowd of 22,000 people attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival below.
The Mesquite Police Department had no prior contact with him, according to spokesman Quinn Averett, nor had there been any calls to Paddock’s home in Mesquite, which is about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. Paddock’s home is being searched. Officials did not know how long he had been living in the area.
At least 10 rifles were found in his hotel room, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said at a news conference.

Paddock had been at the Mandalay Bay since Thursday, Lombardo said.

BREAKING NEWS: ISIS Claim Responsibility for Vegas Shooting and Say the Gunman ‘Converted to Islam Months Ago’
http://conservativefighters.com/news/breaking-news-isis-claim-responsibility-vegas-shooting-say-gunman-converted-islam-months-ago/
ISIS has has claimed responsibility the mass shooting in Las Vegas where 50 people were killed and more than 406 wounded, and said the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago.

The shooter was 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock, a resident of nearby Mesquite, Nevada, who opened fire on the festival taking place at Las Vegas Village from a room across the street in the Mandalay Bay Hotel at 10:08pm.

“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,” the group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the U.S.-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East.

“The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,” Amaq added.

It is still not known what kind of weapon Paddock used, but officials said more than 10 rifles were recovered from his hotel room.

Officials were searching for Marilou Danley, whom they identified as a companion of the suspect, Lombardo said.

Just before 7 a.m. ET, police tweeted that they had “located the female person of interest.” Lombardo said Danley was located out of the country and was not believed to be involved in the shooting. He added that Paddock was utilizing some of her identification.

Authorities described having found several weapons in Paddock’s hotel room after the shooting.

Country Music Star Describes The Graphic Carnage — ‘That’s When You Knew It Wasn’t The Pyrotechnics’ [VIDEO]
http://conservativefighters.com/news/country-music-star-describes-graphic-carnage-thats-knew-wasnt-pyrotechnics-video/
Country music star Jake Owen described the horrifying scene of the Las Vegas massacre Monday morning to CBS.

Owen talked about the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history over the phone with CBS News, and the details are downright horrifying.

He told CBS the following:
We started just running in any direction because you didn’t know where it was coming from. At one point I was kind of sitting on the ground behind a car with about 20 other people crouched down behind a car. And just the fear in everybody’s eyes, but yet, the feeling of everybody looking around to make sure somebody was okay.

I’ve just never experienced anything like this before. … I thought it was perhaps the pyrotechnics then I realized it literally sounded like a fully-automatic uzi or machine gun. That’s when you knew it was not the pyrotechnics and it was somebody shooting a fully automatic rifle.

Shooting on Las Vegas Strip kills more than 50, hundreds wounded

A shooter fired into a crowd of concert-goers in Las Vegas, murdering at least 50 and wounding hundreds. The nature of the incident is still unclear.
At least 50 people were killed and over 400 wounded during a shooting at an outdoor music festival on the Las Vegas Strip late Sunday.
From the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas Strip casino, Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on an outdoor music festival, killing at least 50 people — including two off-duty police officers — and wounding more than 200, officials said early Monday.
Country music star Jason Aldean was performing on stage when the shots began ringing out Sunday night at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.
Officers confronted the suspect on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across the street from the concert and he was killed, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said. Authorities did not release the suspect’s name but said he is a local resident.
Concert-goers reported hearing what they described as automatic gun fire during the shooting.
Lombardo said they believe this was a “lone wolf” attack but said they were looking for a roommate of the dead suspect as a person of interest.

The two slain off-duty officers were attending the concert, Lombardo said. Another off-duty officer was in critical condition and another was wounded, Lombardo said.

Several officers from California were attending the music festival. A Bakersfield Police officer was shot and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

‘Beyond Horrific’

Hours after the shooting, Aldean posted on Instagram that he and his crew were safe and said the shooting was “beyond horrific.”

Kodiak Yazzie, 36, said he and his girlfriend were watching Aldean’s performance when he heard what sounded like fireworks. The music stopped temporarily and started up again before another round of pops sent the performers ducking for cover and fleeing the stage.

Thousands fled as bursts of gunfire could be heard for more than five minutes, Yazzie said.

Jose Baggett, 31, a Las Vegas resident, said he and a friend were in the lobby of the Luxor hotel-casino — directly north of the festival — when people began running. He said people were crying and as he and his friend walked away, they encountered police checkpoints where officers were carrying shotguns and assault rifles.

“There were armored personnel vehicles, SWAT vehicles, ambulances, and at least a half-mile of police cars,” Baggett said.

Witnesses said they saw multiple victims and dozens of ambulances near the concert venue. Some attendees later huddled in the basement of the nearby Tropicana hotel-casino.

Officers carrying assault rifles ran into the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

Authorities shut down part of the Las Vegas Strip and Interstate 15. Flights were temporarily halted at McCarran International Airport because of the shooting, the airport said on its verified Twitter account.

The witness, 21, told local news: “She had been messing with a lady in front of her and telling her she was going to die, that we were all going to die.

“They escorted her out to make her stop messing around with all the other people, but none of us knew it was going to be serious.”

She described the lady as Hispanic. The lady was escorted from the venue along with a man.

The unnamed witness, who was attending the event on her 21st birthday, described the pair as short, both around 5 ft 5ins to 5ft 6ins tall, and looked like “everyday people”.
