Just one day short of the one month anniversary of the deadliest shooting in modern history, what appears to be a copycat attack on a large crowd has just unfolded in total Halloween horror. There are still a lot of questions left unanswered in the Las Vegas massacre and the FBI recently announced that they will no longer be updating the public on the investigation. Now, we’re learning more about this subsequent shooting as it’s breaking than we have heard about in 30 days of the Las Vegas concert killing investigation.
It was only a matter of time before someone took attack notes on what shooter Stephen Paddock managed to pull off on October 1, which left 58 people dead and more than 500 wounded. He rained down hell on country concert goers right outside his hotel and still to this day Americans are left without answers of how he was able to enact such a massive plan of attack so seamlessly. The assailants in this Halloween shooting didn’t seem to be able to pull off their crime quite as seamlessly and there’s a big reason why.
Halloween poses a particularly terrifying threat for attack as it’s easy for assailants to disguise themselves and get away with mass murder in a crowd. That’s what a group of shooters just did overnight, dressed in clown and ghost masks, when armed with machine guns they went into a packed club in London, England where a rave was underway. Horrifying footage caught what happened next when they opened fire on everyone inside and showered the crowd with bullets. Then something really strange happened.
Express in the U.K. reports:
Gunmen dressed in Halloween masks opened fire on revelers at an illegal rave in London last night. Horrifying footage shows vile thugs dressed in clowns and ghost masks using automatic weapons to unleash a shower of bullets on clubbers leaving a man and woman seriously injured.
The video also shows the shock moment a man returns fire with a handgun. A 41-year-old man was shot in the leg, and a woman in her twenties in the chest, at the Money Move party in Leyton, East London, during the fracas. Police have confirmed the man is in a stable condition, and the female victim did not suffer life-threading injuries.
It’s strange but incredible that with that many people in close contact that everyone was relatively spared inside, save for the two that were injured – but not a single death. Even the injuries were not as detrimental as they could have been but that doesn’t make the attack any less frightening. The report explains more as well as some alarming discoveries of the incident.
A nearby business owner told the Sun: “It looked like it was a gangland execution gone wrong”. One clubber said they saw “at least four guns” being used during the horror attack. They said around 100 people trapped inside as the gunmen had blocked off the road with a car, stopping party goers from fleeing.
Video of the aftermath of the attack shows a woman using a belt as a tourniquet on a wounded man.
“Officers were then made aware of a female, believed to be in her 20s, who had self-presented at another east London hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest. Her condition is described as not life-threatening or life-changing.
“A crime scene was put in place and an investigation has been launched by Trident officers.”The venue, on an industrial estate, is reportedly used as an African church but is often hired out for raves.
The shooters have not been identified, however, London has become a hotbed of hate for Islamic terror after the U.K. has allowed Muslim refugees into their country in droves. Much of Europe is unrecognizable as it now looks like the Middle East. London has become a target for repeat terror attacks and it’s been reported that the Islamic State was particularly impressed by what Vegas shooter Paddock pulled off and wasn’t shy about their plans to replicate his mode of operation. This only increased the terror warning to avoid massive open-air gatherings.
Despite the fact that this similar attack didn’t take place on our soil, there’s no stopping it from occurring here. It’s probably not “if” it will happen here, but “when.” The FBI concealing crucial information on this and refusing to speak on the massacre moving forward dismantles citizens’ faith in the system and that we’re protected. One has to wonder what they are hiding and why and it’s a pretty concerning thing that copycat attacks are already taking place and this London one was probably just a trial one for what’s coming to America.
