They're saying they've got reports of medics being shot at at Tropicana. eta now they're saying nothing happened at Tropicana, luckily.

One suspect down inside the room at Mandalay Bay, I think.

Listening to this shit live is insane.

eta2 More and more reports keep coming in about basically every other hotel/casino having a shooter, but all have been negative so far.

White dude, might be Stephen paddock, age 64, sex offender, lived in Vegas area. Death toll at least 20, more than 100 people injured. Holy fuck. He fired from the 32nd floor with a fully automatic weapon and lots and lots of ammo into a packed concert crowd.

i know we're all dying to play guess the political flavor of the mass shooter, but this one is tough.  an old white guy sex offender shoots a country music crowd?

it is making me think of the guy who shot congressman scalise

It's a symptom of modern America,  whatever his side. It's the fact that there are sides the way there now are sides. It's rush Limbaugh and alex Jones.  It's motherfucking trump. Fuck this country sideways.

Still, shot into a crowd full of kids? Prepper or redneck right. Takes an authoritarian to do that. It's gotta seem worth it.

Must admit, I had thought the bloke must really hate country music.

No shit, I wouldn't by surprised if that was his reason. Just about any mass shooting you have over there is done on the flimsiest of pretexts, so it wouldn't be that hard to believe.

Everyone calm down and wait for confirmation. If it was a Muslim guy, then we can go ahead and shit on civil rights and do as much as possible under the guise of protecting Americans. If it was a white guy, we can shrug and say that's just the price of freedom and there's nothing to be done. Let's not be hasty.

Reports from witnesses this morning say they were running then taking cover as he reloaded.  30 round clips, fully automatic.  The video didn't sound like an AK-47, more like an AR-15.  The shooter modified it for full automatic obviously because the video clips are quite clear on the auto-fire.

Witness said he heard AT LEAST 15 reloads during this time.  Gunman planned this shit.

To a good portion of us living here, it's fucking insane AND terrifying.

I wish this shit were still funny, but even parody any more is fucking awful (not knocking you, meeps, just the whole fucking situation).

Whoops: Guardian's live updates just gave me this. I wonder how the sheriff feels about it?

Police: 'Lombardo killed himself'

Sheriff Joe Lombardo is giving another press conference. He confirms that more than 50 people were killed and more than 400 were injured in the attack.

He says there is nothing "derogatory" in the background of the suspect, Stephen Paddock.

"We believe the individual killed himself prior to our entry," Lombardo said.

Some 10 weapons were found in his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel

I would suspect the "live updates" would be pared back a bit now that the scene is secure and no imminent threat exists.
