(Las Vega, Nevada) --  Las Vegas is reeling after the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history played out on along the world famous Strip last night.  Authorities say more than 50 people were killed and more than 400 injured during that shooting. 

A Sunday night concert across from the Mandalay Bay resort became a scene of panic, as rapid-fire gunshots went off in front of a crowd.

Seguin Deputy Police Chief Bruce Ure is in Las Vegas, and was there last night. Chief Ure says okay, but he did suffer an injury. Ure wrote on his Facebook page this morning:

"I caught a piece of bullet shrapnel on my hand, but minor. The shooter was 22 floors directly above our room. Rounds hitting the ground all around us. I am guessing 400 to 500 rounds. Maybe more. It sounded like a war zone"

SWAT teams from Las Vegas Metro Police made their way into Mandalay Bay, finding victims, and searching for the shooter.  He was located in a room on the 32nd floor and killed by police.
