The incident seems to be over. Initial reports that he (shooter) was shooting from his hotel room downward on the crowd attending a country music festival. 2 killed, 24+ wounded. Shooter is dead and LV Metro has stated they do not suspect there is a second or more shooters.

Hope that is accurate.

That's full auto for sure. Sounds like there wasn't a specific target as much as a spray into a crowd to create mass cas before responding LE could intervene.

Damn still 16+ listed as critical with unknown dead.

Some outlets are labeling it a terrorist attack over an AS event, which may prove to be more accurate in time.

Heart goes out to the families of those killed and speedy recovery to those injured. What a bullshit cowardly thing to do.

Tuukka 2 October 2017 04:56

Lots of speculation/fake news etc flowing about the net.

However, could this be a "home grown" shooting incident like the recent baseball field shooting, by a white democratic/anti-Trump male.

Instead of being an ISIS etc. type attack.

RIP to those killed in this attack and hoping for as many of the wounded to pulling through as possible.

edd1e22 2 October 2017 05:05

WSJ reporting 20+ dead as of 0200 PST. There's just no words for this

Partially. Incident over but as posted below, 20< killed.

Hoepoe 2 October 2017 05:17

Shooter was local and APB out for his female companion.

V.A.P. 2 October 2017 05:30

More than 20 dead so far, and over 50 admitted to UMC.

EchoFiveMike 2 October 2017 05:37

LVPD currently seeking info, 0336/02OCT local time:

Quote:

The shooter was not identified, except as a local man.
Police are now seeking a woman named Marilou Danley whom they believe to have information they need. She is described as an Asian woman, around 111lbs.
They are also trying to locate two vehicles that they say belonged to the shooter: a Hyundai Tucson, license plate 114 B40, and a Chrysler Pacfica, license plate 19D 401.

Vegas Shooting
 
20 dead and 100 injured...Jesus. Godspeed to those affected by this horrible act. Occurred at a Jason Aldean concert...

Hot Mess 2 October 2017 06:00

A friend I lived with was 10í away from the incident but got out safe. Chances this was a Christian? Zero?

My guess is SJW/Anti-Trump based on the initial info.

Five-O 2 October 2017 06:07

Damn shame of a world to live in when these types of events continue to occur. Regardless of the motivation for the attack I'm not sure there is a solution when we live in a relatively free society. I hope the wounded have as fast a recovery as is possible. Texting a colleague on scene... it will be worse than 20.

EchoFiveMike 2 October 2017 06:29

More info in the law enforcement thread. Per reported LVPD, primary shooter is deceased, they are seeking possible accomplice, person of interest.

Daily Mail link I posted there has current info and photos of possible accomplice as well as info on vehicles that are being sought.

US news media has their night crews on duty at the moment, so even worse than normal reporting.

Shooter reportedly "hispanic", given full auto weaponry clearly heard, possible cartel/former insurgent/MS-13/etc background or equipment sourcing. S/F....Ken M

Sheriff's briefing: 50 dead. Wow. Video I heard sounded like an AK. Supposedly several automatic weapons found.

edd1e22 2 October 2017 06:41

50+ dead now with 200 wounded. It's going to be long and traumatic night for LVMPD/Fire

1RiserSlip 2 October 2017 06:41

64 y/o Stephen Paddock = shooter

shooter has been named as a Stephen Paddock

iraqgunz 2 October 2017 06:48

I saw this as it was breaking. Unfuckingbelievable.

edd1e22 2 October 2017 06:51

Video of gun fire right underneath

Sounds like shooter had some kind of bump fire device as the cyclic rate changes

Chimo 2 October 2017 06:54

So if the accounts are accurate, a liberal opened fire on innocent people at a country music concert.

I'm sure this will get spun into a good democrat was targeting a hillbilly neo-nazi gathering. Curious what ties these idiots have with Antifa or other leftist organizations.

EchoFiveMike 2 October 2017 06:55

Have they released any info on the relationship to Marilou Danley? S/F....Ken M

EchoFiveMike 2 October 2017 06:58

Larger than 30rd magazines also. Almost sounds like one of those stupid hand cranked trigger flipper deals, as it speeds up and slows down as you turn it. S/F....Ken M

osubuckeye762 2 October 2017 06:59

Unbelievable.......

I was walking across the lobby of the hotel I heard the Today show reporters talking. I looked at my watch and thought it was weird since it was so early.

I was just catching up on what happened in France and Canada when this occurred.

Senseless violence.
A long night and a day ahead for LVPD, Crime scene and medical personnel.

Prayers out to all involved.

Sheriff is saying they are roommates and they found her gaming card in the hotel room he attacked from.

Also reports of a woman yelling at concert goers telling them they will all be dead in 45 minutes. Curious to see if Danley matches that description of that woman.

I picked that up too. Reminded me of a M60 that had a dirty piston or a headspace problem. I'm not saying that was the weapon used.

1RiserSlip 2 October 2017 07:16

BTW. Kudos to the LEO's there. That fucker was killed about as fast as possible given the circumstances.

Gsniper 2 October 2017 07:26

Guys, lets keep a lid on the party affiliation and shit like that till some solid information comes in.

Good on the cops for getting on this guy quickly. Could have been a lot worse.

57Medic 2 October 2017 07:30

Prayers to the fallen, and their families.

Justaclerk 2 October 2017 07:34

Rest In Peace to the fallen, speedy recovery to the injured. Thank you to all the first responders including LE, EMT, fire and rescue and the hospital medical professionals and staff. Also, thank you to all the civilians, who reacted to the tragedy as heroes as the events unfolded.

Chucko 2 October 2017 07:36

In a mob like that with fire reigning down, how in the world do you get away from the target zone? I really feel for those victims.

Mingo Kane 2 October 2017 07:43

I don't think the narrative on this act is going to be good...

Headhunter1965 2 October 2017 07:47

WTF.....

RGR.Montcalm 2 October 2017 07:50

2 of the victims were off duty police officers, not sure if they were killed in the concert area or responding to the shooter.

News talking about 'drum type magazine' based on number of rounds fired in the amount of time the shooting occurred. Fox has a 'former Green Beret commander' talking about how quick magazine changes take 'a lot of training' and curious about his background/ training.

Better start loading up on 30 round mags again- watch the price spike like it did before...

The casualty count could go up since people were doing the 'throw the victim into a car and drive to the hospital' thing.

Prayers out for the fallen and the wounded. God help us all...

redhawk 2 October 2017 07:51

Fucking horrific. I think Iíll just turn off the news and social media for 24 hours.

Good on those that took him down quickly.
RIP to the dead.

Ole crusty bastard 2 October 2017 07:52

Heartbreaking.
