A video of a man putting up his middle finger and yelling expletives at the gunman during the Las Vegas massacre on Sunday night has gone viral online.
The video shows a man holding up a beer can as he looks toward the location of the shooter inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
“Get the f–k down,” one concertgoer can be heard saying in the video. The man holds up his middle finger and directs it toward the shooter before ducking after hearing a number of rounds being fired off.

The gunman was identified as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old retired accountant who fired hundreds of rounds from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino into the crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on Sunday night.
The gunman killed 59 people and more than 500 others were injured. Paddock reportedly died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Paddock carried 23 guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition into the hotel suite with the use of more than 10 suitcases.
Authorities said they found 19 more firearms and explosive material in his home in Mesquite, Nevada.
Paddock is believed to be the only one responsible for the attack. However, the motive for the attack is still not clear.
