UPDATE: At least 58 people were killed and more than 515 injured at the Route 91 country music event near the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. Las Vegas Police Department confirmed that two off-duty police officers were among those killed. At least two on-duty officers were also injured. One was in a stable condition after surgery and another sustained minor injuries. It is the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history, with the death toll surpassing the 49 killed at a nightclub in Orlando in June 2016.

‘Machine gun fire’ — these videos are terrifying.

“Bodies left and right.” Seattle’s Emily Cantrell was at the concert.

“We heard what sounded like firecrackers and at first we laughed, then we looked down and there was a girl covered in blood right next to us and we started to run,” she told Q13 News’ Jon Humbert late Sunday night. “We hid behind bleachers. We hid behind plants. We hid wherever we could while trying to run away.”

“We passed body after body,” Cantrell said. “It was awful. There were bodies left and right.”
