WATCH AERIAL VIEW OF WHERE THE SHOOTING TOOK PLACE:

Country music star Jason Aldean released a statement in the early Monday morning hours stating he was safe after the Las Vegas shooting Sunday night.

Aldean was performing at the Route 91 concert in Vegas when gunfire rained down on concert goers from the Mandalay Bay hotel, killing at least 50. The country music legend released the following statement on Instagram:

Tonight has been beyond horrific. I still dont 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

There is startling video of the musician running for cover as bullets were fired into the crowd. The music cuts off and Aldean runs backstage as the crowd begins to rush for protection.

Fellow country music star Jake Owen was also in Vegas at the time of the shooting for the concert and is also safe.

Stephen Paddock killed at least 50 people and wounded more than 400. Police believe he killed himself as they responded to his hotel room. Check back throughout the day for more updates.
