Shooting started as jason aldean was finishing up. Scrambled off stage with everyone else running for cover. LVMPD says 1 confirmed shooter down. No other shooters likely.

The news outlets are already focusing on the full auto weapon. It is sickening. I bet it won't be long till they start bringing politics in on this.

Sounds like a belt fed weapon for that type of action? Any reports on the type of weapon?

I thought the same thing. Belt or drum. And, various weapons. Maybe all the tall buildings, angle of shots, and elevated height made the sounds seem different. But, they certainly seem to change.
