That sounded like more than one active shooter. Probably multiple shooters with auto rifles. Concert venue + shooters randomly killing people in the crowd is textbook isis modus operandi. Reminds of the bataclan terror attack my city. Jesus christ this shit will never stop.

I just got out of a concert at the Hard Rock Hotel and had no idea that this was happening. Could see people running away as far as UNLV.

Listening to police scanner now.

Hoping the fatality/injury number is minimal, but the rapdiness of those shots is not a good sign to say the least.

For those that have direct knowledge about purchasing or owning guns, how difficult is it to acquire a fully automatic weapon, if that's indeed what these people in this attack are using?

Can't remember the last attack in the US off the top of my head where I remember fully automatic weapons being used unless I'm forgetting one. Jeez this is awful.

This was the concert by the way, Jason Aldean was the headliner tonight so it's likely he was performing at the time the shooting started.

On the police radio they just said medics are reporting getting shot at.

Also, a suspect is "down". Not sure if that means dead, shot or detained.

Word or not, it's a tourist destination. Perfect target and as someone mentioned many casinos connect so you can go through a few casinos without stepping out. Multiple exits, lots of parking lots.

This sucks.
