Sixty people were killed and 527 others injured in Las Vegas when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of music festivals from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, in what is now the deadliest shooting in recent US history.
The death toll from the accident could rise further, the Clark County death judge told a news conference.
Jason Aldean was the main title. A video clip showed him pushing off the stage amid gunfire. Other artists include country stars Jake Owen, Big & Rich, Luke Coombs and Dylan Scott.
A witness described the shooting as “continuous shooting.”
Terrified passersby ran away and ran, while some sprinted to work, frantically caring for the wounded. Concert-goers who were just enjoying the last night of the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival, which was being held across the street from Mandalay Bay, made makeshift stretchers out of police barriers.
An official at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas said that “people fleeing from the venue of the concert have breached the perimeter fence near the venue,” and that the airport staff “transported these people to the designated evacuation site.”
An Allegiant Air spokesman said about 30 people who fled to the airport were housed overnight at an airline facility there. The airline said its employees helped people get clothes, charge their phones, and call loved ones.
