Las Vegas law enforcement says more than 50 people were killed and more than 200 injured when an apparent lone gunman opened fire from a perch high up in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas Sunday night.

The “nonstop gunfire,” according to one witness, sent bystanders outside the resort on the Vegas strip ducking for cover and fleeing for their lives. Tourists hid in their hotel rooms and flights headed into the McCarran International Airport were held elsewhere.
Videos filmed by onlookers gave a window into the chaos that ensued, with some thinking that fireworks were going off.
The final night of the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival was taking place across the street from Mandalay Bay when the shooting took place and concertgoers were caught off-guard. In the wake of the shooting, the Las Vegas Police Department said the suspected gunman, believed to be a local, was on 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay hotel.
