Jason Aldean is speaking out after at least 59 people were killed and 527 more were injured Sunday during his set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. From his 32nd floor hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd of more than 22,000 people. Video footage showed the musician running offstage as bullets were fired.
In the aftermath, Aldean took to Instagram to let fans know he was safe and pray for those who were not. "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," he said. "#heartbroken #stopthehate."
Late Monday night, the country artist pleaded for unity.
