    This is disgusting. I watched a video where you could hear the gunman laying on the trigger of a machine gun and hundreds of bullets being sprayed into the concert. You must register/login in order to see the link.

    People on twitter that are there, saying people shot in the head

    It's such a horrible world we live in now. I always viewed Vegas as one of the safest places ever. My thoughts are with everyone involved and the families. Such a shock.

    Over 20 killed, 100 injured... you just can't get your head around the kind of person who would do this...

    I would be very surprised if that number doesnt rise considering the amount of bullets sprayed into a crowd of 30,000.

    Geez, this has all the making of the Bataclan shooting. Choose a big crowd and open fire. What makes it more horrific is the type of gun that has been used.

    At least, indicates this was thoroughly planned.

    One can only wish that the casualty numbers won't increase any further but as Lockinlove said, it wouldn't surprise anyone if that would be the case.

    That shooter has one disturbed mind. A machine gun on innocent people, how much more disturbed can one person be!

    Thanks for the link. What on earth drives a retiree to commit this kind of atrocity?

    For the foreseeable future, people can't go for a relaxing weekend to LV without the question in their head "Will it happen again"?. Anyone who was there, knows how the main strip area looks every evening and especially on weekends. There are always big crowds.

    From watching the video. The gunfire is from an automatic assault rifle.

    These guns are not allowed in public hands ( for obvious reasons )

    So he must of as least had contacts in the black market ( not likely) or he has had help from other means to obtain such weapons ( ????)

    I could be wrong, but will be surprized if this is just a retiree who flipped for what ever reason. Too much planning for me.

    According to the BBC:

    I bet the good old gun ownership debate will soon start again.

    Surely it is now time for some change to the law?

    Death toll now over 50

    Las Vegas shooting update.

    UPDATE:

    Several police press conferences later, reporters were informed that the shooter was a 64-year-old man resident in nearby Mesquite named Stephen Paddock.

    He was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a 32nd floor room at the Mandalay, where he had been staying since 28 September. Police reported that he had 8 firearms in the room.

    The casualty list was also steadily updated and had reached over 50 dead and over 406 wounded by dawn Monday Las Vegas time...the largest mass shooting in US history.

    The FBI is assisting local police in investigating the incident and trying to establish what motivated the shooter.

    A German news site reporting that ISIS is claiming he operated under their instructions after converting to Islam some months ago. They published the "official message" in Arab.

    This would be a bombshell. Although they made false claims in the past, it certainly is comparable to the Bataclan or Manchester shootings.
