Late Sunday night, gunfire was heard across the Las Vegas strip as a gunman open fired from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino onto a large crowd of people attending a country music festival being held across the street.
While SWAT found the gunman dead, likely from a self inflicted gunshot, some 58 people were killed, and at least 515 were left wounded, according to officials. Immediately, celebrities from the entertainment and political worlds took to Twitter and social media to voice their concerns and grieve with the masses.
Las Vegas, we are grieving with you—the victims, those who lost loved ones, the responders, & all affected by this cold-blooded massacre.
