LAS VEGAS (AP/Meredith) -- Country music star Jason Aldean took to social media to say he and his crew are safe after a gunman killed more than 20 people at an outdoor concert Sunday.

Aldean was in the middle of his performance when the bullets rained down on the crowd. He posted on Instagram hours later, calling the shooting "beyond horrific":

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.
