A gunman had broken a hotel window and was firing down into the crowd with a high powered weapon.

The gunman opened fire during Jason Aldean’s performance at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

Officers reportedly broke open the door of the hotel room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay and killed the gunman who was a white male in his 60s.

 Authorities shut down part of the Las Vegas Strip and Interstate 15 while they looked for the shooter.

Jason Aldean Instagrammed:

''Tonight has been beyond horrific. I still don't 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''
