Active shooter incident.
Reports of multiple shooters.
Definitely multiple victims and multiple ambulances going to different hospitals.

Shooting is actually at Route 91 country music festival taking place near or on Mandalay Bay property.

Massive police response specialized units enroute including Mass Casualty response vehicle.

Performers at Harvest Festival heard multiple shots fired at about 10:00pm.
Those on stage witnessed major trampling and stampede incidents.

LVMETRO twittered everyone that LV Blvd was closed in the area and that ALL plane traffic at the airport was in abeyance briefly.

Early reports were confusing as to exact location and number of shooters and also as to whether high numbers of victims were gunshot wounds or trampling victims.

Reports are "many dead".
One known shooter; others appear to be rumors.
Over twenty victims now in hospitals but unknown whether GSW or stampede injuries.

Report of lockdown at festival unless leaving in an ambulance.

Conflicting reports of activities at the casino itself.

Good to know you're out in the street. You're first I've seen affected at Caesars. They're reportedly clearing LVB to Sunset.

Wow, many of the (unconfirmed) reports I am reading are talking about what seems like coordinated attacks at several properties.

The videos on twitter from Mandalay Bay are terrible, not watching anything else myself.

Its still really early to know whats going on, but I hope everyone here & friends/family are safe.

I was driving southbound on the 15 around 1030pm tonight (about 1.5 hours ago). I saw cops flying down the freeway, one after the other after the other. And they weren't just regular cop cars, but looked like a bunch of different types (like undercover lookin' cars, sedans, big trucks, etc.). Seemed like they were getting off on Russel or Tropicana. A bunch others on i15 North. Then the freeway heading north got stopped completely down to about the 215, completely stopped.

I figured some sh** was going down, but holy damn, this is way worse than I expected.

The Strip probably has as much security as anywhere in the world. Of course, it doesn't mean they are well coordinated for such an incident.
