Mass Shooting At Las Vegas Country Festival
We are waking up to horrific and tragic news this morning that at least 20 are confirmed dead and dozens injured during the final night of the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas Sunday night.
The country music fest is billed as 3-day, open-air festival that was wrapping up it's final night with headliner Jason Aldean on stage while seemingly endless shots rang out into the crowd.
According to BBC.com, a gunman opened fire at an open-air country music festival at the Mandalay Bay Hotel on the city's strip. Hundreds of people fled the scene and the sound of what appeared to be prolonged automatic gunfire could be heard on videos posted on social media. Many of country music's biggest stars played during the festival including Sam Hunt, Eric Church, Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne, Big and Rich and more.
Police said a suspect "was down" and they did not believe there were any more attackers, we'll have much more on this terribly shocking news as the morning goes along.
Tonight has been beyond horrific. I still dont know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe. My Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. #heartbroken #stopthehate
