Terrorism in Las Vegas

From the LVRJ: Las Vegas police have confirmed at least two people have been killed and another 20 have been injured in a shooting Sunday night at Mandalay Bay, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.
Metro confirmed about midnight that one suspect is “down.”
The department is asking people to avoid the area.
Police scanner traffic reported multiple casualties from the incident and possibly two shooters with automatic weapons.
The attack came during the last performances on the final night of the three-day country music festival, which has been held for the past four years on an 15-acre lot across Las Vegas Boulevard from Mandalay Bay.
It appeared the shooters were firing down at people from upper-level rooms of Mandalay Bay.
Ivetta Saldana said Jason Aldean stopped in the middle of his performance and was rushed off the stage. She was there with a friend and said the shots sounded like fireworks.
 FBI SWAT as well as SWAT units from Henderson, North Las Vegas and Las Vegas were called to the scene, according to police scanner report.
Multiple ambulances and police vehicles are on the scene, and victims have been have been sent to University Medical Center and Sunrise Hospital Medical Center. Multiple roads surrounding the area have been shut down.
This will be updated as more information  becomes available.
Update: my ex-wife is an RN at a local Las Vegas hospital emergency and she is telling me that they are swamped with patients, probably patients from UMC hospital.
