On the 18th January 2018, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, released their initial report into the mass shooting incident at a concert on the 1st October 2017. Prior to this, we have reframed form including much about the incident; although the severity and relevance suggests that we should.
All initial information was provided by news statements by the LVMPD and investigative reporting. Believing that the great majority of the reports would be factual, the percentage of sensationally reports and false claims, meant that we could not include any detail of the incident. With the release of the initial report and the passing of time, we now have a grasp of the incident and feel the time is right to start sharing with the events community, for consideration and further research.
Included, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Departments Preliminary Investigation Report, videos of the incident and relevant news report.
