Put the focus on the victims (as shown in photo) rather than giving the shooter's their 15 minutes of fame

Holy fuck it's like waking up to a nightmare in real life. RIP to all and prayers for all wounded.

Completely agree with the post about media changes to these coverages but unfortuantely it'll never happen. Ratings are way too high to change their tactics.

Also, not sure what casino rules are on firearms on premises. Nevada as far as I know is a very strong gun rights state. Obviously private property has their own rules. Though I would imagine there are lots of gun shows in the area and vendors/exhibtors will stay at some of these hotels and will have firearms in hotel rooms fairly often?

The video the automatic fire as the concert is going on is scary. You hear people whoop and cheer at the beginning since they think it may be part of the show until you realize whats happening.....

Just found out my cousin went to that concert with his wife & their friends, they're okay (thank fucking god)

My cousin was a former EMT and stayed behind to help others after the gun fire stopped. He had a few people die in his arms .

Fuck.

He was firing from a lower floor.. flash is dependent on the muzzle break.

From what I've seen, it only shows the 32nd floor windows broken, not anything lower than that.

First off let me say that any number is too many dead from shit like this. That said, I am surprised there weren't more deaths. That guy was just firing hundreds of rounds at fish in a barrel... many of whom didn't even know what was happening at first. In fact, in the vid Majofo posted you can see the videographer at the beginning appear to scan above the stage, almost like he thought it was fireworks. Only after the concert stop did people realize something was up... and at that point there had been a lot of rounds fired. The number of dead could have easily have been a multiple of what has happened.

Either way, very sad to read about this morning.

Also keep in mind those casinos may have odd numbering systems for the floors. Between parking decks, lobbies, the casino itself, etc... the 32nd floor may only be the 10th floor of the actual hotel. It depends on how they number their floors...

idk.. Tyler is right that the upper floor windows were blown out.. mistaken location + flash bang.. idk
That could be reflection of police lights..
There's another vid showing shooting from lower floors too but I can't find it

that's kind of BS too though because I heard when police entered, he was already dead

you can't really believe any of the news until a few weeks later

Shooter was a wealthy accountant. His dad was a bank robber and was on FBI most wanted list.
