Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old Nevada resident, opened fire on a gathering of 22,000 country music fans in Las Vegas in Sunday night.  In this video, you can hear the first volley of automatic weapons fire rain down on the crowd from Paddock’s 32nd story vantage point in the nearby Mandalay Bay Hotel. Chaos follows.

Navy veteran, former professional poker player and social media celebrity, Dan Bilzerian was in the crowd as the attack began. In this video he uploaded during the evacuation, Bilzerian claims to have seen a woman get shot in the head, the sound of gunfire ringing out behind him.  He was later criticized by Marine Medal of Honor recipient, Dakota Meyer for filming his own escape, rather than assisting as the woman died.

From his vantage point on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock did not need to rely on accuracy to effect more than 50 deaths and over 400 injuries.  As you can see from this footage, the crowd of over 22,000 people gathered in the streets below him created the perfect opportunity for a single shooter in an elevated position to wreak havoc.


During breaks in gunfire, the crowd can be seen milling about, some remaining on the ground or behind cover, while others walk or run from the scene. It seems many in the crowd were uncertain as to whether the attack had ended, until more shots rang out.
