Update: At least 50 dead, more than 200 injured in Las Vegas shooting
Las Vegas: Two people and 24 others are hospitalized in the wake of a mass shooting Sunday night at the Mandalay Bay hotel and resort on the Las Vegas Strip.
University Medical Center spokeswoman Danita Cohen said the hospital is still evaluating the condition of “many patients” with gunshot wounds in the wake of the shooting, but at least 14 were in critical condition.
Police reported that one suspect was down. Authorities were establishing a command post and triage center, and have shut down parts of the Strip. Police also were investigating reports of a “suspicious device” down the street, outside the Luxor Hotel.
Concertgoers at a Route 91 Harvest country music festival performance reported a burst of weapons fire as a Jason Aldean concert was underway. The shots appeared to be coming from an upper floor of the hotel, some witnesses said.
