Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department addressed the press and public in the early morning hours of Monday morning, shortly after the incident occurred.

He noted that a shooter was located on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino and killed by police. He was identified as a male and a local resident, but no further information was given.

Police are also requesting that anyone with video footage of the incident turn their videos into the LVMPD headquarters as soon as possible to help with the on-going investigation.

Singer Jason Aldean was in the middle of his finale performance when rapid-fire gun shots were heard, and he stopped playing as festival goers quickly exited the outdoor venue.  He updated fans on his safety on Instagram.

“Tonight has been beyond horrific,” the singer wrote. “I still don’t know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe. My Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. #heartbroken #stopthehate.”
