Cop inside Route 91 venue: It’s close I can smell the gunpowder

A Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officer who was pinned down behind a wall inide the Route 91 venue during the 1 October attack confirms smell of gunpowder

A local Las Vegas cop who was pinned down behind a wall on the west side of the route 91 Harvest Music Festival venue during the 1 October attack admits the gunfire was so close that he didn’t know whether it was coming from inside of the venue or outside and could smell gunpowder in the air.

It happened at 9:10 pm (5:10 UTC). That’s when fully-automatic gunfire hailed upon the west side of the venue in what sounded like three separate controlled five round bursts and it was all captured by an officer’s body-worn camera.

“I don’t know where they are coming from,” the officer explained to others nearby as he attempted to gain a better vantage point from behind the wall.





The confused officer asked: “Are they coming from inside or outside?”

“It’s close I can smell the gunpowder,” he said. “I can smell the gunpowder right here.”

At one point, the officer was so sure the gunfire came from close range that he instructed another officer to look for a shooter in the bushes just on the other side of the wall.

The following video shows what appears to be gunsmoke originating from street-level on or near Las Vegas Blvd in the direction of the Luxor.
