Jason Aldean responds to mass shooting during Las Vegas concert

LAS VEGAS — Country music star Jason Aldean took to social media to say he and his crew are safe after a gunman killed at least 58 people and injured 515 others at an outdoor concert Sunday.

Aldean was in the middle of his performance when the bullets rained down on the crowd. He posted on Instagram hours later, calling the shooting "beyond horrific."

Clark County's sheriff says officers confronted the suspect on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across the street from the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival. Authorities say the man is dead. They did not release the suspect's name but said he is a local resident.
