AP reporting multiple suspects, one is down.

2 confirmed dead, dozens injured.

I was looking at the eyewitness videos and it definitely sounded like automatic rifles (the kind that only military personnel are legally allowed to use) so this has all the readings of some sort of terror attack. But of course there is very little-if any-accurate information about suspects.

Pretty much the entire Strip is on lockdown. Crazy that the Las Vegas Police even had to post this on Twitter:

100+ injured, 20+ dead, shooter fired from room on 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino onto the crowd of concert goers below. Appears to be a lone shooter at this point.

Terrible. Stayed at Cesars for a few nights back in May, so this is hitting close to home. Given the time (now 8.30PM in Melbourne) and the number of Aussies who travel to Vegas as part of a US trip, this is getting heavy coverage here at the moment........

Just to clarify things a little.

It looks like the shooter was on the Foundation Room balcony.

The site of the concert was across LV Blvd.

Mandalay and Luxor are locked down.

Guest are being accommodated at other hotels, both in the MGM group and other companies properties.

I'm going to have to be a little vague for a while on specifics, sorry.

How is this hitting close to home, you were there in May staying at a different hotel?

Looks like a local lone wolf nutcase with a gun, going postal, it doesn’t appear to be terror related at all.

The shooter's name is a 64 year old Stephen Paddock per a release by the LAPD.
Once again, another selfish jerk, with some sick motivation, access to a military class weapon possibly illegally modified, too may bullets, has murdered in cold blood people in a partially controlled public accessible place. Of course on some websites the comments or 'thumbs up' for them have jumped to the conclusion that this was an act of 'radical Islamic terrorism'. Some comments will also blame 'liberals' from allowing 'those people' into the country, conservatives will be blamed for caring more about the 2nd Amendment than public safety. At least it is believed the shooter acted alone and is dead.
While such mass shootings are not exclusive to the USA, they happen far too frequently, at least 2 per year in the USA in public places and with smaller losses in too many of our cities due to gang and family connected acts. As this seems to be the 1st mass public shooting since Trump has taken office, it will be sadly interesting to hear his likely inane comments and tweets. Meanwhile 20+ dead & 100+ injured, families destroyed, kids without a parent or parents, normal working class people, millions in taxpayer costs for investigation and care of the dead and injured, probably some money grabbing lawsuit filed by a victim later this week.
I am tired of our culture in the USA that seems to encourage such acts. It is long past time to deal with them. But how is the great mystery.

Will be of interest to see what the shooter's motivations for this atrocity were. From the what I've been hearing, sounds like some planning has gone into this...... Booking a room in an upper floor, shooting out the windows, multiple weapons... Either a nutcase, or someone who has a serious beef with something....


Police have now located his 'companion'.

But you can't deny the obvious fact that if the shooter wasn't white and was black or of dark-skin complexion, the headlines all across Western media, particularly right-wing outlets, would be calling it a terrorist attack even before all the facts are in.

This attack in Las Vegas is just sickening. I feel so bad for the victims. Yet, as usual, nothing will be done at all regaridng gun control..

And with Trump, you know damn well how's he going to react if the perp was non-white.

And with gun control, obviously with the Republican-controlled house, senate and presidency, they're going to follow the money.

Isn't Las Vegas an open-carry jurisdiction? I recall all the anti-gun control fanatics & NRA loyalists/extremists repeatedly saying that a well-armed society is key to stopping and/or deterring mass shootings like this. Evidently this philosophy once again did not seem to work here, as Stephen Paddock was apparently shooting non-stop for several minutes.

Nope. Not if you have the money, live in a "free" state and are willing to do the paperwork.

My brother's police officer colleague in Texas has an uzi machine gun and when I last visited Vegas in 2007, there was a WW2 gun museum where you could hire machine guns to shoot.

We're going to blame this on a LOT of different things from the weapon (which in all honesty I can agree with some of the blame), political affiliation, NRA, etc. Let's blame it on what it really is though - the mental health crisis in the US and how we're afraid to touch it. We started with the horrible, horrible lobotomies and insane asylums here in the US that did nothing, and we moved on to absolutely nothing. While we can't predict 100% of what will happen, we can stop most of these people before they do something like this.

Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook and the cinema shooter dressed as the joker (probably Orlando too). Shooters with documented mental health issues who are able to LEGALLY access/acquire firearms. This crap writes itself.

Just to correct my post, I'm now being told it was not from the Foundation Room, but a hotel suite in the north tower.

To answer a question above, yes Nevada is open carry, but in general casinos do not allow them.

I was flipping through the channels and happen to catch a bit of FOX news and they mentioned how the shooter could of been radicalized. One of the hosts actually mention how the gun shots sounded like it came from a gun that a terrorist would use (Implying Islamic terrorist). :roll:

Oh God... 50+ dead, 200+ injured. This is now the deadliest shooting in US history, surpassing last year's Orlando attack.

No America, you still don't need gun control, not at all. It's OK to let more people die per year by your own than in all of Europe from terrorists.

Let's face facts here.

Yes, we all feel sorry for the families who will wake up today to the news that a loved one was involved in the shootings (injured or dead). But we also have to start a debate of when enough is enough. Right now the push is to allow silencers to be unregulated. Imagine if such an item were in use for this event.

The Constitution guarantees both the right to vote and the right to own firearms. Why do we have to jump through several hoops to vote yet arms can be sold as regular merchandise?

This goes beyond politicizing the event, as PHX787 implied; it's the fact that the debate on how we prevent this from happening (or at least reduce the likelihood) has not taken place.

The Constitution guarantees both the right to vote and the right to own firearms. Why do we have to jump through several hoops to vote yet arms can be sold as regular merchandise?.


one of those costs money, the other makes money.

The race is over. Moore has over 50% of the vote with just about half the votes in. Jones can't overcome that. McConnell has 10am meeting tomorrow so they can get this guy removed. At least the seat stays Republican. That is the important thing.

We're going to blame this on a LOT of different things from the weapon (which in all honesty I can agree with some of the blame), political affiliation, NRA, etc. Let's blame it on what it really is though - the mental health crisis in the US and how we're afraid to touch it. We started with the horrible, horrible lobotomies and insane asylums here in the US that did nothing, and we moved on to absolutely nothing. While we can't predict 100% of what will happen, we can stop most of these people before they do something like this.


Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook and the cinema shooter dressed as the joker (probably Orlando too). Shooters with documented mental health issues who are able to LEGALLY access/acquire firearms. This crap writes itself.


I agree with you, however if 50+ people dying and elementary school children won't change anything, I fear nothing will.
