The Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas ended in tragedy on Saturday (Oct 1) when a lone gunman opened fire on concertgoers during country singer Jason Aldean’s set. Over 50 people have died and 400 people are left injured, making it the deadliest attack in US history.
Celebrities have taken to social media to send their love to victims of the attack, including Jason, who posted a heartfelt message on Instagram, “Tonight has been beyond horrific. I still don’t know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe. My Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. #heartbroken#stopthehate”
