Carlsbad Police Captain: Las Vegas shooter’s weaponry ‘was not an AR or an AK […] its cadence sounded similar to a 50 cal. machine gun’

A Carlsbad Police Captain says he was on the deck of the Losers bar talking with his wife and four friends when he heard what sounded like .50 caliber machine gun fire emanating from an elevated position toward Mandalay Bay


LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) — Carlsbad Police Captain G. White was seated on top of the roof deck of the Losers bar with his wife and their four friends when he heard fully-automatic gunfire emanating from the direction of the Mandalay Bay around 10:05 pm.

“The sound was gunfire with a distinctive cadence that I could not place,” the captain wrote in a supplemental narrative filed with the department on October 8th.

White explains: “The cadence was consistent, however, it was much slower than an automatic AR-15 or AK-47 platform [it] sounded similar to a Browning 50 cal. M2 machine gun.”


Keep in mind, the captain’s report dovetails with other reports from eyewitnesses who’ve claimed virtually the same thing. Stay tuned to for more reports like this one. Don’t forget to comment, share, and bookmark us!
