UPDATE: On October 10, 2017, Shepard Ambellas, Publisher of Intellihub.com transcribed the audio from publicly available Las Vegas Metro Police scanners to form a timeline of the massacre of October 1st.
This timeline and the multiple incidents and locations of shooters support statements made by the young Gio Rios, who was near the front row at Jason Aldean’s performance and narrowly escaped getting shot. Rios recorded his account of the events in the Facebook Livestream above on October 8th, 2017. The police scanner timeline appears beneath the summary of Rios’ testimony.
Rios reports hearing additional rounds of gunfire being shot from both outside and within the Tropicana hotel, as well as from the direction of the New York New York hotel. These events are also referenced in the police scanner timeline below and are in serious contradiction to the official “Lone Nut” narrative about Stephen Paddock propagated by the Las Vegas police department and the Mainstream Media.
SUMMARY OF GIO RIO’S TESTIMONY
A young man named Gio Rios did a livestream on Facebook last Sunday and I’ve edited out some of his small talk (especially in the beginning) and added some titles. He made this livestream because he is appalled at the lies of the US Government and Mainstream Media. He states unequivocally, “What happened exactly one week ago was a terrorist attack. It was group-organized, it was choreographed and I don’t want anyone thinking it was a one-person shooter…This was a terrorist attack on US soil and they’re still out there, on our soil, planning another attack.”
Gio says he was staying at the Luxor hotel with his girlfriend, Marissa the weekend of the Las Vegas shooting. They went to the Route 91 festival across the street and were watching Jason Aldean perform near the front row, Stage Left when the shots began firing and people all around them began dropping. (They were in the area closest to the sights of the guns being fired from the Mandalay Bay hotel).
Gio describes hearing the horrible sound of bullets penetrating human flesh as he fled the venue with Marissa on Giles Street, only to hear more shots coming from the direction of the Hooters restaurant on Tropicana Boulevard. He and Marissa hid behind a car before being herded into the Tropicana Hotel with dozens of other fleeing, bleeding concertgoers, one of whom died in the hallway.
While in this hallway, a very calm, muscular, light brown-skinned man with a black polymer suitcase ordered him into the casino. Gio refused and asked what was in the suitcase (this was a chaotic crisis situation with a dead man beside them on the floor and this cool and collected man had a suitcase). The man looked him dead in the eye and was about to show Gio what was inside when very rapid bursts of gunfire erupted in the Tropicana casino and the man ran in that direction. Jason’s impression was that people were being herded into the casino to be killed and that this man would have killed him, if he hadn’t been distracted.
(During the question session at the end, which I’ve edited out, Gio describes the man as speaking unaccented Southern Californian English and looking like he was maybe of “Armenian” ethnicity, which I take to mean that he looked like a male Kim Kardashian).
After escaping through a door, Gio and Marissa were in an alleyway when shots began firing again, from fairly close range in the direction of the New York New York hotel. They then ran back into the alley and hid inside a dumpster for three hours.
It was from this location that he heard helicopters flying over the Strip for several hours. He asks why, if by then Stephen Paddock had already been found dead, that the police would still be looking for perpetrators, if they were so certain that they had found their Lone Gunman. He says, “They knew that there were multiple shooters.”
After three hours in the dumpster, he and Marissa emerged and a Las Vegas Metro cop immediately told them to get inside the Tropicana hotel, which had by then been secured. They lay on the floor of a convention room for a couple of hours and waited for every hotel on the Strip to check and clear all of the rooms so they could go back. He comments, “Again, why were they doing that if there had only been one shooter?”
When the TV was turned on and it was announced that, “Two were confirmed dead and 20 injured,” Gio and Marissa were shocked because they had seen with their own eyes that the casualties were much greater. The local TV station flashed the phone number for the FBI tip line. Gio immediately called the FBI and relayed everything that’s been stated here. At that point, he thought this was the right thing to do. He’s not so sure about his safety anymore (!)
Gio describes staying up all night and finally getting back to their room at the Luxor hotel and watching Trump’s speech at 7AM. He says, “It wasn’t right…It was a terrorist attack, OK?…There’s no way in Hell that a 64-year-old, untrained man could shoot an automatic military grade weapon from the 34th (sic) floor at a declining grade and hit people…[he couldn’t do that] for ten minutes straight. There’s no way. And if you believe that, I’m sorry. I have no words for you…it was a terrorist attack. Donald Trump can’t say that because he doesn’t want that [on his watch]…but who gives a sh*t?
“Be real! Tell the people the truth! If you are running our country, you need to tell them the truth…this is immense, people! This was so huge. This was a terrorist attack on US soil and they’re still out there, on our soil, planning another attack.”
