Although social media can be a tool in times of emergency, it can often work to spread falsehoods and misinformation surrounding terrible incidents. When it comes to the Las Vegas shooting, which has left over 50 people dead, it's no exception.
It is important to make sure information being spread about a shooting or attack is verified and substantiated in order to prevent innocent people from being blamed and keeping a false narrative from going viral.
Here are some of the biggest hoaxes to watch out for when it comes to the Las Vegas shooting.
This circulating image is a photo of comedian Sam Hyde, which has become a meme for trolls to post after mass shootings.
The above picture is not of a missing victim, but is taken from a suspect connected to a murder case in Mexico.
Wayne Root, a conservative social media personality, tweeted about the shooting being a "coordinated Muslim terror attack." He also claimed to have sources that confirmed there were shots fired at multiple hotels. Neither of these are true.
YouTuber Steven Haffley posted an unverified claim that Stephen Paddock was seen at an anti-Trump rally in Reno, Nevada, in August 2017.
