    Reports now saying 50 dead, 200 injured. Shooter was killed, identified as Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada.

    Officials saying it is not terrorism related... sure looks like terrorism to me though. I guess "terrorism" is only for brown people?

    Worst mass shooting in American history.

    Didn't some 60+ year old also just do a mass shooting recently?

    The gun control putzes have already started.

    Prayers for everyone very sad thing to happen.
    I find it amazing that only one shooter could do all this at 400 plus yards range, time will tell if there was more than one shooter.

    Very sad day. I saw on the news that were moving the injured with wheelbarrows.

    I've seen a few of videos on Twitter. There was a pretty clear one with Jason Aldean on stage and you can clearly hear the gunshots, obviously from a fully automatic weapon. No way someone could pull a trigger that fast. Sprayed the crowd.
