Defiant music fan shows Las Vegas gunman the 'bird' during shooting
LAS VEGAS – A defiant and not-so-smart country music fan was caught on video flipping off the Las Vegas shooter in the middle of the gunfire that left at least 58 people dead.
The New York Post published the video which shows an unidentified man standing up with a beer in one hand while offering an obscene hand gesture with the other, pointed in the direction of the Mandalay Bay where the shooting was based.
In the video, the sound of gunfire can be heard as concertgoers yell at the man who refused to take cover. When the man locates the source of the gunfire, he lifted his right hand with the middle finger raised.
The man was attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival, which was across the street from the Mandalay Bay, where Stephen Paddock is suspected of opening fire from his 32nd floor hotel room.
Along with the 58 dead, authorities say that 515 people were taken to hospitals.
