  1. I can't even imagine how terrified those poor people had to be. Is it bad my first thought after reading this was "please let this be a white, Christian male? Because otherwise you know the Orange Menace will use it to fuel his anti-brown-people agenda. Plus, this will knock Puerto Rico even further from the news, which is the last thing they need. Too much bad stuff going on in the world. At least 20 dead, 100 injured at shooting on Las Vegas Strip, police say Police arrived at the Las Vegas Strip, responding to reports of an active shooter in the area Oct. 2. Police arrived at the Las Vegas Strip, responding to reports of an active shooter in the area Oct. 2. (The Washington Post) Police arrived at the Las Vegas Strip, responding to reports of an active shooter in the area Oct. 2. (The Washington Post) A gunman opened fire on concertgoers at a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night, killing at least 20 people and injuring “in excess of 100″ others before dying during a standoff with police, authorities said. Witnesses told the Associated Press that the gunshots were fired from the upper floors of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino around 10 p.m. local time. Police said they confronted the gunman shortly after on the hotel’s 32nd floor. Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said police believe the suspect, a local resident, was a “lone wolf” who acted on his own. He but did not identify the gunman and declined to give further details about him. The shooting occurred at the end of the Route 91 Harvest Festival, a three-day country music concert held over the weekend that reportedly drew 30,000 attendees. The concert grounds are adjacent to Mandalay Bay. The shots began as Jason Aldean, one of the final performers, was playing. Lombardo said authorities were searching for a woman named Marilou Danley who was said to be the gunman’s “traveling companion.” The sheriff said authorities were also looking for two cars, a Hundai Tuscon and a Chrysler Pacifica Touring, both with Nevada plates. He called on witnesses to turn over “any cellphone video” that might assist authorities. The FBI is also involved in the investigation. “It’s a devastating time,” Lombardo said at a news conference early Monday morning. “We have responded to the scene, and we’re doing the best we can to provide safety to the survivors.” A witness to the shooting, Ivetta Saldana, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Aldean was rushed off stage when the shots rang out. “It was a horror show,” she said. “People were standing around, then they hit the floor.” Videos posted to Twitter from people claiming to be witnesses showed people screaming and running for cover amid the sound of gunshots. The shooting continued intermittently for more than five minutes, according to the Associated Press. “The gunfire never ended, it seemed like,” concert attendee Rachel Dekerf told CNN. “It just went on and on and on.” Police converged on the area and blocked off roads. Some officers could be seen taking cover behind squad cars as other officers ran into the casino, the Associated Press reported. Morning Mix newsletter Stories that will be the talk of the morning. About 50 people were taken to University Medical Center, a spokeswoman said in an email to The Washington Post. Two of the patients died, and several are in critical condition, she said. Among the more than 100 injured was an officer with the Bakersfield Police Department in Southern California, who was taken to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, according to a news statement. Several of the department’s officers were off-duty and attending the concert when the gunfire erupted. Multiple flights bound for the McCarran International Airport were diverted because of the shooting, the airport tweeted. All other planes were temporarily grounded, with a few flights resuming Monday morning. The Route 91 Harvest Festival has been held for the past four years on a 15-acre lot across an intersection from Mandalay Bay. The concert’s main stage is situated near the northeastern side of the gold-colored hotel-casino, which towers more than 400 feet above the Strip. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/10/02/police-shut-down-part-of-las-vegas-strip-due-to-shooting/?utm_term=.799f41745e7c
