The country star was performing at the route 91 Country Music Festival on October 1st when bullets rained down from Mandalay Bay was mass murderer Stephen Paddock sat in a sniper perch. The shooting Friday night has happened less than four weeks after the Las Vegas massacre on the west side of the venue after a dispute broke out between two men. The dispute ultimately ended when one man shot the other. There have been no names released yet nor word on the condition of the victim who is being treated at North Mississippi Medical Center.
A spokeswoman for the city Leesha Faulkner says people were told to shelter in place at the arena until it was safe to leave.
