Horrific reports are coming in from Las Vegas, Nevada at a music festival called Route 91 Harvest Festival beside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, with an automatic weapon being used on the crowds coming from the top floor of the hotel. One person tweeted that the shots came from the 29th floor and or the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel onto the crowds down below. The shooter (or shooters) is still active, as the Las Vegas Police Department (LVPD) attend to the situation.
Right now multiple casualties are being reported and this must be one of the most horrible shooting incidents ever and it’s seemingly an ongoing attack, taking place inside the Mandalay Bay. It is not known if it is terror related or what the situation is, but this is an act of terror, nonetheless.
At 01:26am Eastern Time, Twitter user Stefinatrix, 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.”
The LVPD have also been fired upon by what is suspected to be by a single gunman, however, this has not yet been confirmed, as there could be multiple shooters, in this ongoing attack. The question now is, who is the suspect and or suspects and what is the motivation for such a horrendous attack?
At least one Police officer has been shot, but at the moment it is unclear how many casualties there are. Watch this most shocking video of the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay shooting, as it happened, at the Route 91 music festival. (Viewer Discretion is Advised.)
