Tarek El Moussa attended the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival on Sunday, but left the event before the horrific mass shooting that took the lives of 59 people and injured hundreds more.

The 36-year-old TV personality took to Instagram on Monday to lend his support to the victims of the tragedy, sharing a photo of the iconic Vegas strip. 

“I was there last night at the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival in #Vegas. My friend Robert wanted to come home early which we did,” he wrote. “My heart goes out to everyone who has been affected by this tragedy. It's times like this that remind us we need to treat everyday with the importance it deserves. Give your family and friends a hug today and let them know they are safe and loved. #PrayForVegas #love #family.”

El Moussa is one of the many celebrities lending their support to the victims of the shooting. Jason Aldean was on the stage at the time and posted several moving tributes on social media.

Over the last 24 hrs I have gone through lots of emotions. Fear, Anger, Heartache, Compassion and many others. I truely dont understand why a person would want to take the life of another. Something has changed in this country and in this world lately that is scary to see. This world is becoming the kind of place i am afraid to raise my children in. At the end of the day we arent Democrats or Republicans, Whites or Blacks, Men or Women. We are all humans and we are all Americans and its time to start acting like it and stand together as ONE! That is the only way we will ever get this Country to be better than it has ever been, but we have a long way to go and we have to start now. My heart aches for the Victims and their families of this Senseless act. I am so sorry for the hurt and pain everyone is feeling right now and there are no words i can say to to take that pain away. Just know u all are in my heart and my prayers as we all go through this together. Time to come together and stop the hate! #stopthehate #prayforlasvegas
