More Bizarre Reports from Las Vegas Massacre Include Possible Helicopter Escape of Rooftop Shooter
Las Vegas Police Department reports that an officer fired at least one shot during the investigation in Paddock’s hotel room. Also, it is now known that the hard drive was removed from Paddock’s computer, suggesting a desire to destroy evidence. The most significant report, however, is that radar tracked a helicopter that hovered at the rooftop of the nearby Delano Hotel moments after the shooting ended and then changed directions and sped away. The craft was broadcasting the identification signal for a Southwest Airlines passenger plane but, since passenger planes do not hover or change directions above hotel rooftops, it is certain that it was broadcasting a false signal to conceal its identity.
