    I couldn't sleep last night and had CNN on when the news broke. It's just horrible. I can't even imagine the terror and horror these poor people endured.

    I'm curious how he shot from the 32nd floor. Most Vegas rooms don't have balconies and windows don't open all the way. I've never stayed at the Mandalay, but stayed next door.

    I'm worried sick. I have a sister and brother in law that live there, but I also have a few friends, but I have confirmation that at least one of them is okay.

    DH: Thank you. ME: For what, babe? DH: For being you.

    I saw it this morning and it is so horrible. The sheriff just did a press conference and said more than 400 people were injured, the scale is just crazy to me. And the death toll is going to keep rising. The news kept showing footage and I wish they wouldn't but I guess I get why they do.

    I don't think it was sourced at all but someone on Twitter who was staying in Mandalay at the time said he heard from the hotel that the shooter "blew out" the window. Maybe he shot through it or something? But I also remember when we stayed in Vegas that our window didn't open in a way that you could shoot out of it.

    Gotcha with the window. I heard that SWAT blew out the door, but missed info on the window. I was like how the hell did he do this? Most windows are closed and no balconies so people don't jump.

    The interviews right after it happened where just heartbreaking.

    Yeah it could be that SWAT did it too, it was really just someone on Twitter making a comment and I know there's a lot of misinformation going around. The news was also initially reporting that SWAT killed the shooter and now police are saying he was already dead when they made entry into his room. I guess apparently he found a way to shoot out the window somehow regardless.

    I can't imagine how terrified those people were. It went on for several minutes and I bet it felt like eternity.

    At the press conference they were asking people to donate blood if they could.

    I have a friend whose husband is LEO in Vegas. She said it is just crazy out there and all LEO is pulling double double overtime. Prayers for everyone involved. This is so sad.
