Photographer with ‘suspicious black case’ and ‘earbuds’ was filming from the rooftop of Mandalay Bay during the Route 91 massacre

The photographer wasn’t the only person spotted with a ‘suspicious black plastic case’ near the strip that night

(INTELLIHUB) Los Angeles-based photographer Jody Kechego says he was filming a timelapse on the roof of the Mandalay Bay while listening to a radio program through his earbuds when hotel security ascended to the rooftop and alerted him that shots were being fired.

Kechego told CBC News that as soon as he removed his earbuds a burst of ‘really loud’ rapid-fire could be heard.

The photographer said, he and security looked over the edge of the roof at one point and saw a bunch of people laying down by the stage of the Route 91 Music Festival who were grouped together.

“We didn’t know if they were dead or alive [and] we had no idea where the shots were coming from,” he explained.

From Kechego’s vantage point he could see concertgoers ‘streaming out different exits’ in the venue between each volley of gunfire as they were running for their lives.

In the interview, Kechego confirms that several different types of guns were being fired which contradicts the official story.

“[…] the shots stopped and then there were some single shots, like a pistol,” Kechego said. “There was about four or five single shots that went off so we had no idea how many people were shooting or anything.”

Astonishingly, the photographer’s account matches up with several audible single shots captured on video by a pedestrian who was sitting at the bus stop outside of Mandalay Bay on Las Vegas Blvd at the time. In that video (below), a woman can be heard explaining how pieces of glass were falling from the Mandalay Bay immediately following the shots.

Why would 2-5 single gunshots be heard if Stephen Paddock purportedly killed himself after his final volley? More importantly, why would glass fall from the 32nd-floor after all of the fully-automatic vollies ended right when 2-5 single shots could be heard? I guess for now those will just have to remain questions.

Back to the story.

Moments later, Kechego said that security told him to get the cameras and prepare to ‘evacuate the building’ which is when Kechego said he got nervous.

“I started taking the tripod down for the cameras and I have a big black plastic case for the cameras and it looked kind of suspicious,” he explained. “I was a little nervous because the police helicopters had started circling looking for the shooter and I was the only one on the roof with the security guys and I had this big black plastic case.”
