The deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history took place Sunday night in Las Vegas, when a gunman killed more than 50 people and injured at least 500 others attending the country music Route 91 Harvest Festival after opening fire from the window of a high floor at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
People across the country took to social media to share their thoughts and prayers for the victims of this tragedy, including those in the golf community, starting with Web.com Tour rookie AJ McInerney, who was in attendance at the concert.
Saw a few people down and bullets hitting the ground everywhere. I'm lucky to be alive. Praying for everyone. #VegasStrong— AJ McInerney (@AJ_McInerney) October 2, 2017
