Las Vegas shooting: Woman screamed ‘you're all going to die’ 45 minutes before attack

A woman caught up in the Las Vegas shooting has claimed that the crowd were warned that they were going to die shortly before the incident.

Brianna Hendricks, who is in the gambling capital to celebrate her 21st birthday, claims she saw a woman escorted out of the country music concert shortly after her outburst.

Ms Hendricks, from Springfield, Colorado, told NBC that the woman, who was described as Hispanic and in her 50s, made the warning just 45 minutes before the shooter, named as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, sprayed bullets into the crowd from the Mandalay Bay hotel.

She said: “There was a lady who came running up behind us in the concert and she started to play with people’s hair acting crazy and she told us that we’re all going to f***ing die.

“She said they’re all around us and we were going to die.

“She was Hispanic, probably about 5ft 5, brown hair. It felt like she had knowledge of what was about to happen, her and her boyfriend who was also Hispanic.

“The woman was saying her boyfriend couldn’t breath so they could get through the crowd.

“It seemed she was telling us to either warn us or she was part of it and she was telling us because she knew we were going to die, it was so scary.”

It is not clear whether the woman’s alleged warnings were related to the shooting.

Paddock, a local man, killed himself after committing the atrocity, while police searching his hotel room found a number of rifles.

The incident is now the biggest mass shooting in US history.
