Officials say at least 50 people are dead and 400 others (new figure) have been injured after a mass shooting in Las Vegas at a Jason Aldean concert.
The country music star says he and his crew are safe after a gunman opened fire at the outdoor concert.
Aldean was in the middle of a performance at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival when machine gun fire rained down from a nearby hotel.
He took to social media hours after the attack, calling the incident “beyond horrific.”
Authorities say the shooter, a local resident, is dead after officers stormed the hotel room.
The gunman has been identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, a local resident with no known terror connections. They believe it was a so-called “lone wolf” attack.
This is the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
CTV News is reporting two Canadians have been killed in the mass shooting in Las Vegas; 23-year-old Jordan McIldoon of Maple Ridge, B.C. and a 28-year-old Alberta woman.
