Thread: Multiple victims hospitalised after Las Vegas shooting

    Default Multiple victims hospitalised after Las Vegas shooting

    http://www.news24.com/World/News/mul...oting-20171002

    Las Vegas - Multiple victims were being transported to hospitals after a shooting late on Sunday at a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip.

    Dozens of patrol vehicles descended on the Strip after authorities received reports of an active shooter near the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

    Some officers took cover behind their vehicles while others carrying assault rifles ran into the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

    University Medical Center spokesperson Danita Cohen said the Las Vegas hospital was taking in "several" people with gunshot wounds. She didn't have any other immediate information.

    Authorities shut down part of the Las Vegas Strip and Interstate 15.

    Some flights destined for the McCarran International Airport were diverted due to the incident.

    Witnesses said country singer Jason Aldean was playing near the end of the concert when gunfire rang out.

    No further information was immediately known.

    This is going to be a bit morbid...

    Those weapons were being fired on automatic, if you know anything about shooting you know that you can't really hit anything if you fire a gun like that. If the casualty count remains at 2 fatalities + 24 wounded (and I hope it does), then I don't really think this is the work of someone who knows how to shoot. Especially in a crowded place like a music concert.

    To me that rules out ISIS or your typical right-wing gun nut type.

    Apparently the guy was up around the 30th floor of the hotel, so firing down into the crowd rather than in the crowd.
