From what I read it was a drive by outside the stadium and everybody fucking panicked and ran outside to where the shots were. Fucking stupid herd of idiots.

That's pretty much it, but acoustics are a funny thing. The shots were bouncing off parts of the stadium to where it sounded like it was coming from inside the stadium itself.

The same thing happened in the Las Vegas mass shooting: the sounds from him firing from the 20th floor were bouncing off all the other tall buildings around so that nobody could really tell where the shots were coming from.

A new report from Motherboard suggests that, in multiple instances, police departments have exerted pressure on AI-driven gunfire detector firm ShotSpotter—pushing the company to alter evidence against specific suspects, often to bolster the legal cases against them.

ShotSpotter sells a popular automated system that uses acoustic sensors and algorithms to help police detect gunfire in targeted geographical areas. The firm, which launched some 25 years ago, describes itself as a “leader in precision policing technology solutions that enable law enforcement to more effectively respond to, investigate, and deter crime.” In recent years, the company has proliferated throughout the country, contracting with more than 120 different cities. Increasingly, its data is used in court cases to place suspects at or near the scene of crimes, and the company claims that its evidence has been used in close to 200 court cases.

Oh wow. Well, that completely screws every single case that software was ever used in. You can bet every single person that evidence was used against will either have their cases overturned outright or get a new trial sans that evidence.
