Jake Owen shared his eye-witness account of the mass shooting in Las Vegas on the Today show this morning (Oct. 2).
Jake was onstage at the Route 91 Harvest Festival when a gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, killing more than 50 people and injuring more than 400.
“I just kind of ran like everyone else,” said Jake, in part, to Today host Matt Lauer. “At one point, I was crouched down behind a cop car with about 20 other people, that were people who had just come to the show,” Owen said. “Everyone’s asking if everyone’s okay. There was blood on people. You can see a couple of folks in the street that looked like they had been shot, lying there.”
