At least one active shooter has been reported on the Las Vegas Strip after an unknown gunman reportedly opened fire on crowds from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Hotel.

Victims were also reported at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival, which was occurring just over the road from Mandalay Bay.

It is currently unclear whether the violence has been caused by multiple shooters, or a single gunman.
