A video taken from the fourth row of the Las Vegas concert near the Mandalay Bay resort and casino on the Las Vegas Strip shows the horrific moments when gunfire erupted. As seen below, footage from within the crowd of more than 22,000 concertgoers shows what Shaun Hoff captured on video from the front of the concert as people ducked and alternately stood and pointed toward the location where Stephen Paddock opened fire.
As seen in the video, one woman stands and points toward the shooting location, as another man holds a beer and flips his middle finger in the direction of the shooting, before ducking once more. Viewers of the footage are commenting that they can see the muzzle flash from one of Paddock’s many guns in the video.
Additional videos of the Las Vegas shooting from the Instagram account named randy_kindred_girl and the Twitter account of Morgan Marchand can be seen below. Photographer Brendon O’Neal’s video of the shooting in Las Vegas can also be seen below.
O’Neal spoke about the traumatic incident to CNN and told reporters how Brendon helped a girl who had been shot in the head. O’Neal’s friend helped the unnamed woman get into a police car. Brendon was initially onstage when the shooting began. According to Click on Detroit, Paddock, 64, killed at least 50 people, with an injury toll now at more than 400 people, when he opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel just after 10 p.m.

In the graphic Las Vegas shooting videos, people can be seen running, tripping over others, and falling to the ground. The sounds of cursing, confusion, crying, and more can be heard as the gunfire erupts in spurts. Some concertgoers run with their drinks in their hands as others fall to the ground.
Lots of reports of the shots at first believed to be only fireworks can be heard in the videos, as one woman tells another to calm down, but she refuses to calm down. Police audio of “shots fired” can also be heard in the videos.
Just interviewed Shaun Hoff who was in the 4th row &I recorded this video. Says "we couldn't do anything." A woman was shot 30 ft from him. pic.twitter.com/rRZBeYH9tK
