While law enforcement have said that they believe the shooter in the Las Vegas massacre was a “lone wolf,” it sounds like others might be charged because of their investigation.
From the Daily Mail:
Attorney Nicholas Crosby did not identify new evidence or suspects but said charges might be possible depending on the results of an ongoing investigation.
Sheriff Joe Lombardo and the FBI have said they believe Stephen Paddock acted alone to carry out the October 1 shooting that also injured hundreds before killing himself.
‘Without naming names, there are potential charges against others as a result of the ongoing investigation?’ Clark County District Court Judge Elissa Cadish asked Crosby as he argued to keep police search-warrant records sealed.
‘Yes,’ said Crosby, who represents the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, which Lombardo leads. ‘There are charges being investigated.’
But, it may not be directly related to the actual massacre:
Crosby told the judge he had no information that the charges pertained to the ‘actual murders’.
The attorney declined outside court to say whom he referred to.
Officer Laura Meltzer, a Las Vegas police spokeswoman, said the department is ‘investigating possible criminal charges related to items discovered during the service of search warrants.’
SO… with such sparse details, it really could be anything. Unfortunately because it was such an odd attack, it has been open to absurd conspiracy theories and outright lies from many about what the scumbag’s motive was. Hopefully there are more details forthcoming in order to help explain this terribly tragic attack.
