    At least two people have been killed and 24 injured after at least one gunman unloaded hundreds of rounds of ammo on a Las Vegas country music festival on Sunday night. There were 30,000 people in attendance at the event.
    The Strip has been completely shut down after the sniper opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest country music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino, located across a junction from the event.
    Police confirmed that one suspect had been killed, and said at 12:38am that they believed there were no more shooters. It's not clear how many shooters there had been.
    Those listening to police scanners reported that the shooter was killed after cops breached a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay.
    SWAT teams were seen heading towards the resort in armored vehicles earlier.
    But unconfirmed reports of gunfire at other locations has some concerned about the possibility of multiple shooters, and police have been spotted en route to the Bellagio hotel, according to CNN.

    University Medical Center spokeswoman Danita Cohen said that 26 people were submitted to hospital, of whom 12 were in critical condition. The rest were being evaluated, she said.
    All of the ambulances in the area had been deployed to the location, and victims taken to two hospitals.
    Professional poker player Dan Bilzerian, who was at the event, streamed footage of himself running. Noises that could be helicopters or gunfire could be heard in the background.
    'Holy f**k this girl just got shot in the f**king head,' he said, 'This is so f**king crazy.'
    The LVMPD tweeted: 'Please avoid heading to the south end of the Strip. Las Vegas Blvd is shut down at Tropicana, southbound past Russell Rd at this time.'
    Flights out of the city's McCarran International Airport have been suspended indefinitely.
    Dozens were seen on aerial footage fleeing the Mandalay Bay, which was locked down, as police surrounded the location.
    Unconfirmed reports were made of a suspicious vehicle outside the Luxor, and shots fired at other Vegas locations: Aria, NYNY and Tropicana.











    Kodiak Yazzi, 36, said the music stopped temporarily and started up again before another round of pops sent the performers ducking for cover and fleeing the stage.
    As the 40,000 fans in the crowd began to flee, Yazzi took cover and said he saw flashes of light coming from the Mandalay Bay hotel tower high above.
    The bursts of pops would start and stop for more than five minutes, he said, and dozens of ambulances arrived as he ran for safety. He later got a Lyft driver to take him home to suburban Henderson.
    According to Twitter users listening in on police scanners, police breached a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel; shortly afterward, the suspect's body was found.
    Earlier in the incident, Twitter user Stefinatrix, who was in the building, said gunfire had been reported from that floor.
    Later, she tweeted: 'I'm on the 6th floor [of the Mandalay Bay]. Shots reported on floor 29 now. Listening to LVPD scanner feed. Security guard shot on 32nd floor.'
    One witness told KSNV-TV that he heard 'clip after clip after clip - bullets flying everywhere'.

    Woke up to this news. Insane. Also, part of me was relieved the shooter was an old white dude because the last thing the world needs is trump exploiting this.
    Of course, because he's white the police are calling him a "lone wolf" attacker and not a fucking terrorist even though he had an accomplice.
    Can't wait for the right wing "now is not the time to discuss gun laws" comments.

    i guess he's too busy having fighting with the mayor of San Juan to worry about the biggest mass shooting ever in the US.

    Current report is "over 50" dead, and more than 200 injured. Also, they're saying they've found the woman who was staying with him, whether that means they have her in custody or found her body, they're not saying.

    What number of casualties will it take to do something? I thought Sandyhook would have changed things. If killing innocent babies wont change anything, sadly killing 50+ innocent adults wont either. Sigh

    Well at least he isn't praying because who would he pray to? Himself?
    A woman had called out before the attack 'You all going to die' Maybe that was her. Maybe she was fleeing from him as well but that doesn't make sense. Then she would have gone to the police.
