Gunman opened fire on a crowd of people at a music festival from his hotel room.

Gunman identified as 64 year old Stephen Paddock who is believed to have killed himself.

Hoping all the area EB'ers are safe.

Unfortunately this is almost like background noise here in the US these days.

Horrific scenario as per usual, innocent civilians taken out by someone with a grudge and/or illness. Why they can't just commit suicide without creating collateral damage is always my issue.

Sad on so many levels. Had some friends at the show and luckily they left as had an early morning flight.

It is crazy as you said, background noise. Now we have to hear from the hack politicians about gun control again instead of the reasons (economic, social, etc...) for the mental breakdowns causing these actions.

Terrible situation, hope all are safe as well. Breaks my heart that so many families and friends will be affected by the loss and injuries of their loved ones, can't imagine that ripple effect.

Saw a video on IG that Dan Bilzerian posted running away from the gunfire - said he just saw a girl get shot in the head, dude looked so shooken up just unreal.

Just awful. Heard he had 10 rifles in his room. Those in the line of fire never stood a chance.

Thoughts and prayers to everyone in LV affected by this barbaric act.

Right, has absolutely nothing to do with our culture of gun-humping.

That sucks. Dude's instagram is a trip...every other photo is him jizzing on a mountain of firearms. Wonder how this will impact him?

when Republicans didn't do anything when innocent Pre Kindergarten children got slaughtered you know they'll only offer their "thoughts and prayers" for this. they're so far up the NRA's ass it's ridiculous.

i hate that this is so common in the US and people have allowed it to become background noise.

The conspiracy theorists are already at it, one friend on FB is convinced there were two shooters based on the video's he's seen. Sounded like echo's, or sound delay to me...

I read they are trying to say his Indonesia girl friend turned him to the "dark side" spin this into a terror attack, ISIS also praising. Again the real problems (gun control, mental illness, socioeconomic factors etc..) that are making people do this won't be addressed.

Guy at work says it is part of Antifa's plan for a civil war...... I'd only heard a little about this until he elaborated today. This would be even crazier if a part of that and true. Not trying to go too far down the rabbit hole but he feels such acts of violence are only to escalate. Crazy times.

This just in... My next door neighbor's kid told me its part of breitbart's plan for a civil war (now that bannon is back). He plays with Legos so you know it's legit. Craaaaaazy times.
