A witness in the Las Vegas Shooting massacre has been shot dead outside a central Las Vegas Valley church.
Chad Nishimura was a valet worker from the Mandalay Bay hotel, who parked the suspected Las Vegas shooting gunman’s car, and gave an interview saying Stephen Paddock was a “normal guy” who “didn’t have many bags”.
Nishimura gave a statement to ABC affiliate, KITV4 News, but the article was later pulled from the network’s website.
After his account was published, Nishimura disappeared and all of his social media accounts were deleted with his friends and coworkers saying he was “totally unreachable”.
Now, after finally resurfacing, the young hotel worker has been murdered in, what police claim looks like, a “botched robbery”.
Members of the Iglesia La Luz del Mundo church say they heard a gunshot and ran outside to find Chad Nishimura laying on the ground next to a car and immediately called 9/11.
Mr Nishimura’s Bible, police said, was found on the floor about 10 feet from where he had been left for dead.
“It’s very sad because he was just arriving at church,” Metropolitan Police Department homicide Lt. Dan McGrath said.
According to the parishioners who found him, he was a regular at the church’s early morning service, but they hadn’t seen him attend for “the last couple of weeks”.
According to the LVRJ, Metro officers received the report of a man down outside Iglesia La Luz del Mundo, or Light of the World Church, at the intersection of Eastern and Cedar avenues just after 5:35 a.m.
When officers arrived, McGrath said, they found another churchgoer performing CPR on Nishimura, who had a gunshot wound to his upper body.
The victim was taken to University Medical Center’s trauma unit, where he died from his injury about 6:15 a.m.
At the scene, churchgoers told police when they rushed outside after hearing the gunshot, they didn’t see any suspects or cars leaving the area.
Detectives say they’re still trying to figure out whether he was targeted or if he was “a victim of opportunity.”
McGrath said the area, which is just north of a U.S. Highway 95 underpass, “has had some problems.”
“Based on the area, it could have been a robbery,” he said.
“Right now it looks like it could have been a robbery gone bad.”
The homicide lieutenant added there may have been a struggle between the victim and his shooter because the driver’s side door of the man’s car was open when officers arrived.
“It’s kind of a shot in the dark,” McGrath said. “It’s a challenging event right now without any witnesses, but we’ll knock on every door on this street to see if we can get a description.”
This killing was the 205th homicide in Clark County this year and the 182nd investigated by Metro.
Chad Nishimura’s account seems to prove that Paddock didn’t carry bags of heavy machine guns and other deadly weapons up to his room.
One of the biggest gaps in the official story is how he could have taken all those weapons up to his room and remain completely undetected.
Nishimura’s report of “normal guy” Paddock arriving at the hotel without much luggage totally scratches that theory.
This is the reason it has been covered up, though, as it does fit the mainstream media version of events, and it’s the reason this report barely saw the light of day before it was scrubbed from existence.
Now, the question remains: What really happened to Chad Nishimura and what else did he know that needed to be so desperately covered-up..?
