Country music stars are reacting on social media after a gunman opened fire as singer Jason Aldean performed on stage at an outdoor country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday night.

Las Vegas police say the suspect, identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, opened fire at concertgoers from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, killing at least 50 people and injuring hundreds.
