Witness Describes Being Warned Before Attack: 'You're All Going to Die'

Some concertgoers were reportedly warned about the shooting at a Route 91 Harvest country music festival, which left at least 50 dead and more than 400 injured so far.

According to one witness, a woman taunted some concertgoers about 45 minutes before the attack that they were “all going to die.”

“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,” the witness told local news about the woman, who had pushed her way to the front of the venue.

“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.”

The witness, who was there for her 21st birthday, described the woman and man as Hispanic, both short, who looked like “everyday people.”

She and her friends just made it back to their room as the gunfire began.

Police have Danley in custody. The shooter, identified as Stephen Paddock, is dead. 

Paddock was shooting down on concertgoers for roughly 10 minutes from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. 

He reportedly killed himself when police arrived.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said that his officers breached Paddock's room on the 32nd floor and found Paddock dead inside, among an 'arsenal' of 10 firearms. Lombardo said that Paddock shot himself dead. 

Investigators are now raiding Paddock's home in a retirement community in Mesquite, which he shared with a woman named Marilou Danley. Danley was initially called a person of interest in the shooting, but police no longer believe she was involved after contacting her early Monday morning and finding her out of the country. Police say it appears Paddock used her ID when he checked into his hotel on September 28.  (Daily Mail)

Police say they have not determined a motive for the attack.
