Las Vegas reopens after Bellagio attack

Despite the fact no one has taken responsibility for an attack earlier today on the Bellagio hotel, and no one has been detained for that attack, the mayor of Las Vegas has announced the city will be up and running as usual. That includes McCarren International Airport which was closed just after the attack on the Bellagio began.

Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman made the announcement in a press release just an hour ago.

Two explosions rocked the Bellagio at 1:00 p.m. (ET) and 1:01 p.m. (ET).   Gunmen were seen running through the upper floors near the elite and VIP clubs and super suites.  Las Vegas police and SWAT teams fired on gunmen exiting the casino.

At least 100 deaths and 150 injuries have been reported.  Police killed four gunmen; two others remain in critical condition.  Two of the dead gunmen have been identified as U.S. citizens.
