59 people were killed and over 527 injured when a crazed gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas during a Country music concert on Sunday night. Singer Jason Aldean was on stage when the shooting broke out and ran for cover. The shooter, who had a room full of weapons, was found dead in a hotel room. KCYE morning personality Mike West was on site and captured video. All of the other Beasley Media people on site when the shooting happened are safe.
