Post  Lamplighter on Mon Oct 02, 2017 7:55 am

Multiple casualties are reported in Las Vegas after at least one gunman opened fire on an open-air 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 after gunning down a security guard.

It is not yet clear how many people have been injured, but witnesses are reporting multiple fatalities. Hundreds of people dived for cover when gunfire broke out during a song at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

The Las Vegas Strip was put on lockdown as police swarmed the area. A police officer is among several people who are reported to have been shot.

"We're investigating reports of an active shooter near/around Mandalay Bay Casino," police said on Twitter as urged they urged people to avoid the area.

Las Vegas shooting kills more than 50 in deadliest ever US gun attack.

More than 50 people have been killed and at least 200 (updated at 14.30 CET) to over 400 injured at an open-air country music festival in Las Vegas in the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

Terror spread through the city's famous strip as 64-year-old gunman Stephen Paddock launched an attack from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, unloading hundreds of rounds of ammunition from a semi-automatic weapon towards concert-goers.

Police confirmed the attacker - described as a "lone wolf" - was a local resident who was shot dead by officers after raining down rapid fire for several minutes.

The attacker's motive is unknown, but police believe he acted alone. They said he is "not believed to be connected to any militant group", adding: "We have no idea what his belief system was."

The Las Vegas sheriff said Paddock's female travelling companion - 62-year-old Marilou Danley - was being sought as a "person of interest". Police later said they were confident she had been located.    More at link.
