BREAKING: At Least 50 Killed, 200 Injured in Las Vegas Terror Attack

By

At least one gunman fired down onto the thousands attending the annual Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday.

The attack, which witnesses said seemed to last an eternity, claimed the lives of at least 50 people and left another 200+ wounded.

The shooter took aim from a high hotel floor in the nearby Mandalay Bay Casino, and was able to fire an untold number of rounds from an automatic assault rifle before he could be downed by security forces.

Police officials did not initially release the identity of the shooter, though described him as a “local” man, and sought to dismiss suspicions that Muslims were involved by saying it was “not a terror attack.”

Of course, Muslims or not, this kind of shooting is an act of terror, by someone.

Numerous smartphone videos of the incident were soon published online.

Some show country music singer Jason Aldean wrapping up his performance as the shots rang out.


Even after clearing the area of the music festival, victims realized they weren’t safe, given the shooter’s high position.
