JR: It was the third day of the music festival and the last performer of the night, Jason Aldean. I was toward the front of the stage on the right-hand side, on the Mandalay Bay side, with two of my girlfriends. We were dancing, laughing, singing, had drinks, just like pretty much everyone else in the crowd, when the shooting started. When it first started, none of us knew what was going on. Everybody in the crowd said, “Oh, maybe it’s fireworks. Maybe it’s a blown amp.” Jason Aldean was still performing at that point, and then the shooting began again at a faster pace. Everyone dropped to the ground. Jason Aldean went off the stage. People were confused; people were screaming. I immediately just had this feeling like, “How do I get out of here?” Then there was a break in the shooting for a couple moments. We got up to run, and it was at that time I was shot in my back and collapsed to the ground.
