Jason Aldean Responds To Route 91 Festival Shooting: ‘Tonight Has Been Beyond Horrific’

Jason Aldean, who was on stage at Route 91 Harvest Festival, when a shooting attack began, took to Instagram to send a message. 

The assailant, reportedly firing from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay, began shooting at 10:08 p.m. toward the end of Aldean's performance as he was performing "When She Says Baby." Aldean was the closing act at the 3-day festival that also included performances by Eric Church, Sam Hunt, Big & Rich and drew up to 30,000 people.

According to the Las Vegas Police Department, as the story continues to develop, more than 400 people were injured and at least 50 are dead.
