Headed there next weekend. Ugh.

Hope the shooter is the only dead person.

From the sound of it, we won't be anywhere near that lucky. Listening to some videos of when the shooting happened, full auto into a packed crowd for extended periods. This is going to be really bad.

Yup. Sounds like the police have set up a casualty collection point, with reported deaths at multiple locations. Awful awful awful.

Vegas resident checking in.  I was 15 minutes off the strip at Red Rock when this went down.  We saw some of our friends post Facebook messages.  A lady that works for me has a son that is a cop on the strip.  Lots of confusion right now.  Potentially up to 20 dead and 100 injured, but lots of information swirling.

I was on the Strip near Planet Hollywood when the shooting happened.  We saw some people running from the music festival in a panic.  We went back to the Aria lobby where we are staying, but then a crowd of people came sprinting into the lobby yelling "Run!  ####### Run!" and that more shooters were coming.   They evacuated the Aria lobby, and we're all locked up safely in our room now.  It's not exactly clear what prompted the people to say that more shooters were coming, but it seems like it was around the same time that people were reporting possible shots fired at the New York New York.  I haven't heard any confirmation of that. The whole Strip is lit up with police and ambulance lights.  So unbelievably terrible.  The video footage is horrifying.

By far the most terrifying video I've seen of the shooting (content warning, obviously). You can hear the crack of bullets whistling over the camera. 

Gun nerds on Reddit have noted that the sound of the gunfire is a little irregular, which may mean that the shooter was using a "bump fire" attachment to achieve full auto. 1) I've never heard of that before, but after looking up some videos, it is crazy to me that it can be that easy to mod a semi-auto rifle into a full-auto rifle, and 2) if true, that may be a blessing given the alternative, as a bump fire gun is much less accurate than a "real" full auto weapon.

Lots of bots out tonight posting fake news, speculation about Las Vegas shooting. This is one of the official accounts to follow

Confirming that one suspect is down. This is an active investigation. Again, please do not head down to the Strip at this time.

Numerous brand new Twitter accounts/bots are spreading false info about the shooting at #MandalayBay in Las Vegas. Please don't RT them
