Celebrities are spreading their love and support following a Las Vegas massacre that left at least 58 people killed and 515 injured.
Stephan Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, sending a spray of bullets into the outdoor Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.
At the time of the shooting, country singer Jason Aldean was performing. He soon took to social media asking fans to “Pray for Las Vegas.”
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. #heartbroken #stopthehate
Chris Young and Jake Owen, who had performed for the weekend festival, took to Twitter to reassure their fans that they were safe and express their heartbreak over the situation. Trey Songz, who was also in Las Vegas at the time of the shooting, sent his good vibes via Twitter.

Paris Hilton, who made a career as a host and DJ in Las Vegas, sent her prayers to the victims and families who were affected by the tragedy. Bob Saget, Kate Hudson, Mariah Carey and George Takei are just some of the others who are also keeping those affected in their thoughts.
