It is the saddest morning in recent memory, as we react to the terrible news that America suffered its deadliest mass shooting in modern history last night.
The attack unfolded at the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival, which featured big-name country music stars playing across a 3-day festival. There were an estimated 35 – 40,000 people in attendance for Sunday’s big finale.
The concert was being held in an outdoor venue that is designed like a courtyard, situated between major Las Vegas hotels The Luxor, and MGM Grand.
During the beginning of headliner Jason Aldean’s set, which was to wrap up the weekend festival, automatic gunfire rang out across the arena, and concert-goers scattered in all directions. It was learned that a lone gunman had opened fire from a thirtieth-floor hotel room in the MGM Grand, where he was later pronounced dead.
An eyewitness on the scene captured this unbelievable video footage from the concert floor.
Warning – this video is disturbing and could cause severe distress or trigger PTSD.
Our prayers and deepest condolences are with all those effected by this unthinkable crime.
