The horror of the situation developed on live television overnight.
Los Angeles Times earlier noted the first fatalities.
Multiple people have been shot after a gunman opened fire in the Mandalay Bay area of Las Vegas.
Video from the scene shows the moment that the gunfire started during a festival in the city in Nevada.
What sounds like some kind of machine gun can be heard over the noise of the music which quickly cuts out.
It is believed that the gunman may have opened fire from a building overlooking the festival site. Reports are there is one suspect in custody and another is being pursued.
At one point, three shooting sites were reported. But sound distortions and mass hysteria may be in play, to be fair.
The gunman is said to have opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival where people were seen running for cover or lying on the ground.
