Vegas Concert Goer Says Woman Warned Them They Would Be Killed Right Before Shooting

A concert goer at the Route 41 Harvest festival in Las Vegas said that before the horrific mass shooting Sunday night a woman pushed her way into the concert venue and told everyone in the immediate vicinity that they were going to “die tonight.”

A young woman told a local NBC affiliate that another young woman told a group of people in the concert they were going to “die tonight” before supposedly being escorted from the conference roughly 45 minutes before the shooting happened.

Police say the suspect, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nevada, shot himself in his hotel room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay hotel, where they found multiple rifles.

Police sought his “companion,” Marilou Danley, as a person of interest, but say they now do not believe she is connected to the shooting.
