Apparently, there's an on-going shooting with several victims :(


Multiple casualties are reported in Las Vegas after at least one gunman opened fire at a country music festival on the city's famous strip.

Police are responding to reports of an active gunman near the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino after automatic gunfire was heard from about 10.20pm on Sunday local time (6.20am BST).

Several unconfirmed reports claimed that "two or three" gunmen were shooting from the 32nd floor of the hotel, which was on lockdown, after gunning down a security guard.

It is not yet clear how many people have been injured, but witnesses are reporting multiple casualties.

The shooting was reported during the Route 91 Harvest Festival, an open-air country concert, on the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas Police urged people to avoid the area.

University Medical Center spokeswoman Danita Cohen said the Las Vegas hospital is taking in “several” people with gunshot wounds. She didn’t have any more immediate information.

Authorities shut down part of the Las Vegas Strip after receiving reports of an active shooter.

What about the gay club in Florida?

I think all of this is a mess... the US needs stricter gun laws... people who object that are dumb.

+1

I mean, Nevada is even worse.. like you can buy guns even privately.

We don't know if strictler gun laws would have prevented this disgusting act of terror but clearly, it would have decrease the danger of getting shot heavily. I still can't believe there are people atound defending the "right to own guns" Oo

the ultra right in the usa will probably say that guns don't kill, people kill people... if they believe that... then nobody should be able to carry a gun because people are dangerous - no matter who they are.

I am relieved - if that is the right word, that this wasn't Islam related bc if a "brown" person would have committed this horrific crime... Trump would be the first to impose some sort of race-laws.

mass shooting of this magnitude do not occur in countries where random ppl cannot buy and carry machine guns.
