A survivor said in an interview “We heard what sounded like a glass breaking, so you looked around to see what’s going on and then heard a pop, pop, pop. You’d think for a moment okay we’re fine, there’s no more gunfire, then it starts again.”
Thousands of people were present at the concert next to the Mandalay Bay which was part of a three-day country music festival known as Route 91.
At this time we do not believe there are any more shooters. More information to come shortly from @Sheriff_LVMPD.

Trevor Noah, the South African host of the popular Daily Show, has mocked America’s unwillingness to discuss gun control in the wake of the shooting. He pointed out that in his two years of presenting the show there have been 20 mass shootings and every time politicians have insisted this is not the time to talk about gun laws.
