1-year ago tonight (Las Vegas time), my phone kept buzzing.

@BrendenWood was DMing. “What does he want at this hour!?” I remember thinking.

Listened for a few seconds to the rapid “thuck thuck thuck” of the bullets flying, and I knew it was bad.

I’ll never forget that night.
I happened to have a friend in a nearby hotel on the Strip — I think a lot of people knew somebody there in some way.

He asked me, “Should I go out?”

I said, “I’d stay where you are for a while if you’re safe. It sounds really bad. We don’t know if it’s over yet.”
...which is something I constantly think about when I’m reporting on active life threatening situations, which is often: keep reporting info, even minor updates. The more info people have, the better decisions they can make. That night, I sent every bit of reliable info we got.
