An astute Facebook user has noticed that footage of the Umpqua, Oregon shooting scene aired on CBS News actually shows footage from the Sandy Hook shooting.
The facebook post, which has 64,007 views, notes that the CBS news video was abruptly removed from youtube. It is unclear if anyone got a copy of it or reposted it, but several people posted screenshots of the CBS video.
Facebook user ‘Sarah Grace’ wrote: “At 15 seconds in, you literally see the sign that says ‘Sandy Hook School’ While the banner at the bottom says ‘shooter identified: Chris Harper Mercer”
Another remarked “at 16 seconds you’ll see the sandy hook sign, for Oregon shooting.”
And yet another noted: “also at 00:16, you can match the police car’s design. The Crown Vics are a few years old too. The next clip shows CT plates which have blue-white gradient color.”
It appears that the footage was from CBS5 KPHO.com. [See: The Latest: Oregon gunman’s dad says he’s shocked as anyone.]
