Police said the gunfire came from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on Sunday night.

Alex Stewart, of Salem, on the 33rd floor, tells the Eagle-Tribune he looked out his window as thousands of people below ran for their lives.

He described the scene inside the hotel as “confusing.”

Without an intercom system or a way to communicate with everyone at once, many guests sought shelter behind closed doors in bathrooms.
