Just bolted out of the casino at Excalibur. Gun shots in the backgrounds . Only in fucking America— DougK (@fishingdougk) December 15, 2012
Someone just shot themselves dead in front of the Excalibur hotel, I was 20 feet away— Alexis Mansperger (@AlexisMansperge) December 15, 2012
While Twitter was filled with tweets about the shooting and the situation still unfolding, Excalibur, in an attempt to keep things calm, issued the vaguest tweet possible as their first response:
An isolated incident has occurred at Excalibur this evening, local authorities have the matter under control.— Excalibur Las Vegas (@ExcaliburVegas) December 15, 2012
They finally became a bit more human two tweets later:
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those involved in this senseless event.— Excalibur Las Vegas (@ExcaliburVegas) December 15, 2012
The Sun states that "police have not said what relationship Brandt might have had to Kenny." There are reports he could have been a former boyfriend. The Vegas concierge was 30 years old.
