Shooting Breaks Out At Route 91 Harvest Festival

Over 50 people killed, hundreds more injured in the worst mass shooting in USA history. See what we know now, including what country stars and teams have been deemed safe.

Chaos. Pandemonium. Terrifying. All these adjectives describe the scene outside the Mandalay Bay Casino and resort last night when a shooter unleashed holy terror on a crowd gathered for the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. Just as superstar and reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Jason Aldean was set to hit the stage for the headline spot on the final night of the weekend festival, fans started hearing rat a tat sounds ring out and that’s when the terrifying scene began. People shot from an unknown location, hundreds trampled and a man with military grade weapons perched in the 32nd floor of the hotel making it a grisly scene out of a war movie, not a peaceful and fun concert event.
