Last night, a 64-year-old retired man pulled out 1 of many rifles, and open-fired on a crowd of civilians during a Jason Aldean concert. Everything seemed peaceful, video before the incident showed everyone sitting on the grass enjoying the music. Until Las Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, started shooting at the crowd, killing 50 and injuring over 400. His motive is still unknown, but it has been confirmed that he committed suicide before law enforcement was able to apprehend him.
Since the story broke, the hip hop community went to Twitter to offer their condolences to those affected by the worst mass shooting in US history.
I am deeply saddened by what happened in Las Vegas last night. I am keeping all of the victims and their families in my prayers.
