Jake Owen was side-stage as shots began to ring out during Jason Aldean‘s performance at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Sunday night (Oct. 1). The singer was able to give a horrific firsthand account of events.
His team is safe, having taken cover on his tour bus. Thus far 50 are confirmed dead and hundreds injured as a result of a four-minute-long shooting from the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay Casino. Owen says he could hear shots ringing off the stage rigging before he ran to take cover.
There was “chaos and fear in everyone’s eyes” he tells CNN.
