Multiple Shootings at Las Vegas Concert

Several shot at country concert in Las Vegas | Newshub

Shooting has broken out at an open-air country concert in Las Vegas on Sunday night (local time).

Witnesses have reported multiple gunmen are firing from the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, targeting those attending the Route 91 festival nearby. Video from the scene shows panic as people flee the shooting, with at least one person reportedly firing from a balcony.

Las Vegas police have confirmed they're investigating reports of an active shooter and has asked people to avoid the area. It's unclear at this stage how many people have been injured.......

Heavy machine fire from the Mandalay Bay hotel down into the crowd. Police now reporting one suspect down in the hotel. No confirmation if others being sought.

Intital hospital casualty report is 2 dead and 24 injured, 12 critical. However expect that to rise as those security staff leaving who helped evacuate casualties ( mostly ex-military) say they concentrated on the wounded and “everyone now left inside the perimeter is gone”.

BBC reports 2 dead and 24 wounded, reports of "machine gun fire", which could just be one shot and a lot of echoes but we'll see when the dust settles

Warching the video above and numerous other recordings there were multiple bursts of 15-20 rounds, reports say 9 to 10 bursts for a total of about 150+ rounds.

Shooter is dead and has been identified as a local, unnamed. Please are looking for his partner, Marylou Danley, Asian female.

Update on casualties, 100+ injured, 20+ dead.

Initially sounded like a single AK47, they have a slow rate of fire, possibly joined by a second one. Reported now (0930BST) that one gunman has been taken out.

Death toll, now reported on D.W. news as 20, most seem to be on duty, of off duty police officers.

Described as 'not terrorism', just a few more of the over 11,000 shot to death so far in the USA this year then. Move along, nothing to see here.

Number of reported dead is now 50+,wounded 200+.

RIP

Now is not the time to start making old points and restarting old arguments.

Death tolls make it now the worst mass shooting in US history.

Gunman named as Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mequite Nevada.

Highly unlikely to be the action of anyone from the mainstream firearms community. Lawful possession of any fully automatic weapon (as opposed to semi automatic) is tightly governed by the 1934 National Firearms Act and the 1968 Hughes Amendment. This act of wanton terrorism is therefore almost certainly nothing to do with this murdering b******s constitutional rights.

Is it not perfectly legitimate to own a fully automatic assault weapon in Nevada. No background checks on private sales either.

And authorities were very quick to initially point out it was not a terrorist attack (aka the suspect wasn't Muslim).

Probably the same place as the Governor of Nevada, asleep in bed or waiting for a briefing once those dealing with the immediate emergency can spare the time to brief them.

Dragging anti-Trump rants into every disaster or issue says more about you than him.
