200 deaths reported in Las Vegas, 4 gunmen killed

At least 200 deaths have been reported in Las Vegas following an explosion and attacks from gunmen in at the Bellagio, said Tori Baker of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The Las Vegas SWAT team has killed four gunmen, Baker said, and two others remain in critical in condition in Las Vegas. Baker did not know where.

She said there is not evidence that these attacks were related to other attacks with semi-automatic weapons in Acapulco, Mexico, around the same time as in Las Vegas, at 10 a.m. Pacific time.

Baker said the DHS does not yet know what prompted the attacks, but officials are “looking into all possible explanations.”

She said a lockdown is still in effect in the city of Las Vegas, and no one can enter or leave the city.

Officials do not currently know how many people total were at the Bellagio when the attacks occurred. An estimated number of gunmen is not yet available.
