Radio this morning said one shooter, now dead. Police still looking for a possible companion. Reports of other related shootings on the strip are not accurate.

SUMMARY INFORMATION.... SUMMARY INFORMATION....

PLEASE DON'T QUOTE THIS IN YOUR POST... I'M UPDATING AS I HEAR NEW INFO.

I am trying to limit to information confirmed by multiple sources or statements by LV police. The MSM is reporting items that are incorrect or outdated. Not suggesting malice, simply chaos reigns. That and the MSM bullshit experts are speculating on all kinds of theories.

-----------------------------------
As of 1200 EDT

58+ dead. More than >515 injured (many likely trampled in stampede that resulted).

One LV police officer KIA (was off-duty and in audience). Per LV Sheriff.

One shooter, Stephen Craig Paddock a 64 yo, Caucasian male from Mesquite, NV now dead, via suicide as SWAT breached door. CONFIRMED BY LV SHERIFF.

Believed to be the manager of apartment complex.

His brother said the family has no idea why this occurred.

Looking for two cars, a Hyundai Tuscon, NV tag 114B40 and a Chrysler Pacifica Touring, NV tag 19D401. BOTH VEHICLES NOW LOCATED CONFIRMED BY LV SHERIFF.

Female associate Name is Marilou Danley, Asian, 4'11", 111 lbs. 63 years old. NOW IN LOCATED OUTSIDE US, CONFIRMED BY LV SHERIFF.

No other shooters known.

No explosives save for the breaching charge used to enter room where shooter was firing from.

Shooter fired from Mandalay Bay Hotel, 32nd floor. Room overlooks Route 91 open air concert venue.

Per LV Sheriff shooter had been in the room starting 28 SEPT 2017.

SHOOTER HAD FULL AUTO WEAPON OR BUMP TRIGGER. You can hear it plainly in multiple videos taken by concert goers. It fires so long it sounds like it might be a belt fed machine gun or large cap drum mags. At least three reloads. Reports shooter had 10 guns in room.

Red Cross set up center at Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department headquarters, 400 South Martin Luther King for families to go to if they can't reach a loved one.

Red Cross call center for people seeking information on loved ones who are unaccounted for is 1-866-535-5654.


Does not appear linked to international terrorism. FBI rejects ISIS claim of responsibility. PER FBI at the noontime Eastern Briefing.

Likely lone madman.

Venue was three-day country music festival, final act. 22,000 fans in open air fish bowl. Shooter to audience distance was a few hundred yards.

Prayers for all involved.

Kudos to LV SWAT, for fast response. It was fast enough they must have been prepositioned nearby.

UPDATE

Shooter is Steven Paddock.
No criminal record.
No real social media footprint.

Report I'm watching is saying multiple machine guns.


Report I just read said “Paddock was known to local law enforcement” meaning they’ve had incidents with him before?

My thought is a 30 caliber, not 223 due to the fatality rate. Also concur full auto.

Other observations from the Forum?

I thought it sounded somewhat like an M-60, firing maybe 450 rpm. The big question inn my mind is "was the gun papered, and to whom?"

A very sad occurrence.

Stephen Craig Paddock. 64yo, Caucasian male, now dead. Believed to manage apartment complex in Mesquite, NV.

Lone shooter. No apparent ties to international terrorism, very minimal social media footprint.

Updated name to ph vs v spelling.
