Vegas shooting: APWU officers and members in Las Vegas for conferences and training

Engine trouble becomes blessing for postal clerk

After checking into their room at Bally’s Las Vegas, the Anderson couple was strolling up Las Vegas Boulevard toward Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, drawn by the strains of live country music.

“We were actually walking that way,” Jeremy Threet said via phone Monday to The Herald Bulletin. “We didn’t know there was a concert.”

They hadn’t gone far when an urgent warning came over a public address system. The warning was about shots fired and an active shooter situation. Everyone on the street was instructed to get indoors under cover, Threet said.

The couple doubled back to Bally’s, and headed for the restaurant for something to eat.

Minutes later people were running, screaming into and around the hotel. Some people believed a shooter was heading toward Bally’s.

“It was pretty chaotic, people were running, screaming and crying,” said Jeremy Threet, a U.S. Postal Service clerk at the main post office on Raible Avenue. He is attending a postal service conference in Las Vegas. Read more

  1. I HAVE BEEN IN A ACTIVE SHOOTING EVENT AND I PUT MY LIFE ON THE LINE TO HELP OTHERS ,NOT GO AND GET SOMETHING TO EAT…SO IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE THE SAME THEN YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT….STOP READING THE POSTAL ACTIVE SHOOTER POLICY…PEOPLE ARE WOUNDED AND NEED HELP SO YOU JUST LEAVE THEM TO DIED……NOT ME …

  2. Tom…you should get out of our GREAT union if this is the thoughts that fall out of the rock that sits on your shoulders……
    1. UNKNOWN situation: who was shooting; how many shooters; where were they
    2. SAFETY; If you have ever been in a dramatic and dynamic situation where someone unknown to you is shooting or even read on what to do the first is always seek a safe place.
    3. First Responders, police/fire/EMS need unabated access to assist those injured; protect life and property; locate and disable the threat. They need everyone NOT injured or part of the response to assist to get out of the way.

  3. People are being shot and wounded and need help and APWU OFFICERS AND OR MEMBERS RUN THE OTHER WAY AND GET SOMETHING TO EAT >………..JUST REMEMBER SOMEDAY YOU WILL NEED HELP AND I HOPE PEOPLE DONT GO TO GET SOMETHING TO EAT WHEN YOU NEED HELP…….YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSLEFS….. IM ASHAMED TO BE A APWU MEMBER NOW AND WILL BE GETTING OUT OF THE UNION..WHY WOULD YOU POST THIS ??????????
