Obama, Kourtney Kardashian, & more send condolences to Las Vegas shooting victims

R. I. P.

Twitter is bowing its head and sending heartfelt condolences to the more than 50 murdered victims of the deadliest shooting in modern American history.

From the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel, a lone gunman opened fire into the outdoor Route 91 Harvest country music festival, during singer Jason Aldean’s performance, injuring over an approximated 200 people at around 1:00 a.m., on Sunday.

According to reports, authorities have identified the shooter as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock—who, following the massacre, was fatally shot inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

“We heard what sounded like firecrackers going off. Then all of a sudden we heard what sounded like a machine gun. People started screaming that they were hit… When we started running out there were probably a couple hundred [people] on the ground,” a source told MSNBC.

“People kept dropping and dropping. … People were getting shot one foot away from us,” she said. “People were trying to save their friends. There were gunshots everywhere. Helping them would’ve meant that we got shot, too.”

In the wake of the shooting, celebrities—including president Barack Obama, Kourtney Kardashian, and Nick Jonas— and social media talkers have taken to Twitter with their reactions to the national tragedy.

PEEP…
