Seems like many of the reports of multiple incidents were overflow from the mandalay panic.

Unconfirmed reports related shootings at Bellagio.



The floor at Bellagio was evacuated. I was able to get to my room about 30 minutes ago. I haven't seen anything in the news here about the Bellagio, but there was panic and hundreds of people running.

I can see that Flamingo is shut down at I-15 and only ambulances are getting in.
I heart Crystal Math.

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.


Actually, I don't think that's necessarily true. Sure, there are a lot of security guards, but for the most part, especially in this type of situation, they're practically worthless. I don't know if they carry guns, I don't think they do. Most are probably lucky if they have pepper spray and a taser. I don't go to the strip too often, but there definitely are cops on the strip, but it doesn't seem like there are too many or enough to make it a "very secure" type of area.

I was playing my guilty pleasure DaVinci Diamonds at Ariavwhen at 11.30 pm a large group of people in panic ran into the closed Aria cafe. So I cashed out and ran as well. The dealers locked their chip trays and hid under the tables (if I saw correctly).
Later members of that group told me they had heard a loud noise and someone yelled "shooter". Turns out, there was nothing. Aria was locked down for a few minutes.

Police are saying the Mandalay Bay shooter was the only one and he is dead. At least 20 dead, 100 injured.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

This information may not be correct.

It seems like the guy was shooting from the 32 floor of the Mandalay Bay.

Metro is claiming there was one shooter who is NOW DEAD. He is a Las Vegas local. They are looking for his companion an Asian girl named Marilou Danely 4' 11' 111 pounds. They are looking for a Hyundai 114-b40 Chrysler 19D-401

2 off-duty cops attending the concert were shot.

2 confirmed dead, 12 in critical condition, another 12 wounded. They suspect more than 20 are dead and 100 injured.

From listing to the videos and the long rapid fire this does not seem like a normal automatic assault rifle set up.

The Strip is closed from Sahara to Sunset.

Once I was in the area (not sure if it's still there) where the Tiki birds are. There was some sort of confrontation in a large group of people (40-50), and the cops poured in pretty quickly. But no one was actively shooting just fighting.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Exactly what happened at CP.

The paid parking gates continued to function as normal. Some people were struggling to get out, as they hadn't stopped to pay their fees.

By that time, I figured I was safe, and the gate opened for me automatically. But f u c k those greedy pieces of s h i t.

I was down on the strip but in an unaffected area. I cannot get to sleep. There are ambulances and sirens still. I live near a hospital ER. Also cell phone is not able to make calls out of state currently.

This is not going to be good for the city.
