After the shooting in Las Vegas I made a post which compiled a lot of different videos and testimony about the shooting which strongly suggested that there was more than one shooter. The idea that an old drunk and gambler suddenly went lone gunman can’t really be believed given the data.
Recently, a theory was posted on 4chan which suggests that the public shooting was meant to be a distraction while an assassination attempt against Crown prince of Saudi Arabia Mahammed bin Salman was killed. The would-be assassins being other power brokers in Saudi politics and business. The attempt was apparently foiled either through swift action or dumb luck that Salman had disguised himself as a nobody and gone to a different casino. The reason the top of the Mandalay bay was chosen would have been because Salman owns the 4 seasons which occupies the top floors and was staying there at the time. Here is the theory as explained on 4chan [imgur copy link]:
The VIP video mentioned in the post can be seen below [EDIT, the original video was taken down. This guy shows it here and discusses that this guy may have been a security guard named Jason buff called in while off duty who happened to look a lot like Bin Salman]:
I found the following comparison image of Salman with the above VIP here. I am rather unfamiliar with this website or how reliable they are in general, but the comparison picture is worth sharing. You can read their whole article for more of their details.
Now this might be pretty dismissible as a crazy conspiracy theory, but you have to admit it is more than a little coincidental that a little over a month after this possible assassination attempt, the Salman faction orchestrates an unprecedented purge of their political rivals. Seizing what might be hundreds of billions worth of assets. It really makes you think.
