Law enforcement agents expressed their fears that this could have potentially become a “Las Vegas-style shooting”. The quartet had two hotel rooms with balconies that overlook where the huge crowds would be leaving the park after the game.
MLB (Major League Baseball) dodged a bullet. Had there been a mass shooting, some people would point to the fact that MLB took the game away from Atlanta and moved it to Denver.
One of the men that were arrested had made a post on his Facebook account that said he would “go out in a big way,” That sure sounds like he was planning something.
Also, I would like to know how they snuck 16 long guns into the hotel without anyone noticing it. Inquiring minds want to know.
A hotel maid is being hailed for her role in preventing what police fear could have been a “Las Vegas style shooting” at the upcoming MLB All-Star Game in Denver, a report said Saturday.
The housekeeper tipped off cops after she found more than a dozen weapons and 1,000 rounds of ammunition at a hotel near Coors Field Friday, according to ABC7 Denver.
The alarming discovery was made inside a room on the eight floor of the Maven Hotel, just two blocks from the mile-high ballpark that is hosting the “Midsummer Classic” Tuesday, the station said.
Cops removed 16 long guns, body armor, and ammo from the room, which had a balcony overlooking Denver’s downtown, the outlet reported.
