LAS VEGAS - It was the last place that a US Army Veteran expected to find the type of chaos and heartache he saw during the Iraq War.
But late Sunday night, Chris Bethel found himself only two floors below the gunman perched high in a Mandalay Bay hotel room.
"Police told me later he was on 32nd floor, room 135. I was on 30th floor, room 128," said Bethel. "I remember, he switched weapons. The caliber sound switched. He went from automatic to sniper rifle. Phew, phew, just a totally different sound."
