#PrayForVegas: Support Pours Out On Social Media For Route 91 Harvest Shooting Victims

Sunday night (Oct. 1) resulted in what we now know to be the largest mass shooting in U.S. history that killed more than 50 victims and injured at least 400. Country singer Jason Aldean was on stage as the headliner for the final night of the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, when a gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across the street.

Details continue to emerge this morning (Oct. 2) surrounding the shooter, who has been identified and confirmed to be dead. 


As victims receive help and those who fortunately made it out of the festival grounds safely, social media users began using the hashtag #PrayForVegas to express their grief and devastation over the tragic events that occurred. Take a look at some of the heartfelt posts below.
