Stylist Claims Las Vegas Shooter Warned of Attack on Venue

A Nevada hairstylist has claimed that a male client named “Paddock” told them that he believed a local concert venue was vulnerable to attack in June 2016, months before the Las Vegas shooing, the deadliest in modern U.S. history, which was carried out by Stephen Paddock. The man’s comments so disturbed the unidentified stylist that the individual reported the comments to authorities, documents gathered during the investigation into the shooting have revealed. In an interview with police on Oct. 10, the stylist says the client mentioned he couldn’t believe an outdoor arena was built because a shooter could fire into the crowd from the casino across the way. The hairdresser said a woman arrived who was believed to be Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley. The stylist said, “I asked her, ‘Do you know what he’s been saying to me? She’s like, ‘Oh, what, about somebody shooting into a crowd and, you know, wanting to hurt a lot of people?’” The stylist told police that the client said, “I wonder what she’s worried about? She’ll be out of the country.” The stylist says the interaction was reported to police days later.
