October 2, 2017 (San Diego) 1:45 a.m. - A horrific mass shooting has just occurred in Las Vegas.  Police confirm that at least 20 people are dead and more than 100 injured, many seriously. The shooting occurred at the Route 91 Harvest country music concert outdoors across the street from  the Mandalay Bay hotel.

The shooter, who shot from a hotel window at the Mandalay onto the crowd below with what audiotapes suggest was a fully automatic  military-style weapon, is now dead. Authorities also found 10 "assault" weapons in his room, Las Vegas authorities told media. 

Police are reportedly looking for a "companion" named Marilou Danley, described as an Asian woman 4 ft. 11 inches in height and a second woman for whom no description has been provided.  They are also searching for two vehicles:
