It happened as Jason Aldean performed at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. As country music fans were watching the performance, a gunman opened fire killing a reported 58 dead (+ himself) and injuring 489.

A gunman had taken position in a room in the Mandalay bay and opened fire. Reports say he had dozens of rifles, shotguns and pistols.

Although we don’t feel his name or picture should be made more famous than it already is, we will say he was a Mesquite resident with unknown motives as of last report.

News channels report that the man killed himself before they entered the hotel room.
