CNN Video on Las Vegas Courthouse Shooting

I'm late to this news. Just heard about the shooting/gunfight in Las Vegas. Sounds like a Hollywood movie shoot-out on the video below which is from YouTube via CNN. I mean the old-school gangster movies, not the new ones with explosions and machine gun fire.

The next video is audio of a eye-witness account. He says it sounded like 30 to 40 shots. If you listen to the video above and consider that may not be all the shots, he may be right. The suspect was killed and a security guard. A U.S. Marshall was injured.

(CNN) -- A man dressed in black walked into the lobby of a federal courthouse in Las Vegas, Nevada, pulled a shotgun from underneath his jacket and opened fire Monday, killing a court security officer and injuring a deputy U.S. marshal, an FBI spokesman said.

Seven marshals and security officers returned fire as they pursued the man into the street, FBI spokesman Joseph Dickey said. One witness described the volley of gunshots as "surreal," and another, who captured the firefight on video, said it was "unbelievable." (CNN)
