Gun Fire Erupts While Jason Aldean is on Stage

Gunfire erupted while Jason Aldean was on stage at the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas on Sunday. Early reports are that at least 50 have been killed and more than 200 have been injured. The gunman has been killed and a woman of interest has been found. Reports are still sketchy at the moment due to the investigation still being very new, but reports are saying that it is the deadliest mass shooting in the United States at this time.

It is believed that this man acted alone and is not linked to any military or terrorist group. Police were asking that a woman be located that they were saying was a person of interest, so I believe that she may have been involved. The reports are not saying that though. They were also looking for two vehicles that they believed belonged to the shooter. The gunman has been identified as Stephen Paddock, who I believe was in his mid 60's.

Witnesses say that the gunfire began about 10 p.m. as the gunman fired from the 32nd floor of a hotel  near where the concert was being held. CNN is reporting that none of the performers were injured during the mass chaos. I believe that many will be effected by this shooting though. Aldean has made a comment on Instagram.

Prayers for all of those involved as the story continues to unfold. Prayers for the survivors that will feel many emotions over the next few days. Prayers for all families involved including those of the gunman. Hopefully, a motive can be discovered to give a little more insight into what caused this man to snap and attack innocent lives.
