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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
