Las Vegas Shooting: 50 Killed and 406 Hurt Near Mandalay Bay

Las Vegas: In a shootout situation, at least 50 people were killed and several have been wounded as one gunman opened fire on crowds at a music festival in Las Vegas, discharging hundreds of bullets using an automatic weapon.

Speaking to NBC Las Vegas, two festival-goers said they initially heard a noise “like firecrackers”, but it became apparent a shooter or shooters were unloading “clip after clip” into the crowd. One man insisted there were “multiple shooters” involved.

Reports said that the shooting happened at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. It was not immediately known how many people were injured. Video posted online showed a musician performing outside the Mandalay Bay at Route 91 Harvest, a country music festival, when the sound of automatic gunfire rang out. The music stopped, and concertgoers ducked for cover. “Get down,” one shouted. “Stay down,” screamed another.
