Law Enforcement Comments On Strange Note Left Behind By Las Vegas Terrorist
7 months ago

When photos of Stephen Paddock's Las Vegas hotel room emerged online last week, many noticed that among the items left behind by the shooter was a piece of paper that some speculated was a note of some sort.

CNN had previously reported that the note contained numbers but now Las Vegas law enforcement officials have revealed that it contained calculations that Paddock had made of the distance and trajectory of his gunfire from the 32nd floor windows of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

Las Vegas Police Officer Dave Newton told 60 Minutes he “could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was gonna be for the crowd.”

“So he had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there," meaning that the assault was carefully planned and premeditated.  Paddock came to Las Vegas with the intent to kill as many people as possible.

Many found these revelations extremely disturbing...
