A lone gunman opened fire from a perch high up in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Sunday, during the final night of the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival which took place across the street from Mandalay Bay.
The “nonstop gunfire” according to one witness, sent bystanders outside the resort on the Vegas strip ducking for cover and fleeing for their lives.
Witnesses said shots were being fired from an elevated hotel position.
The suspect, a 64-year old white male has since been killed during a shooting engagement with police.
