Mentor native captures chaos of deadly Las Vegas shooting
LAS VEGAS -- “He was just spraying the crowd. He was relentless.”
Those are the words from Russell Bleck on NBC’s Today early Monday morning. Bleck, a Mentor native, was at the Jason Aldean concert in Las Vegas when gunfire erupted in America’s deadliest mass shooting late Sunday.
“You had five, maybe eight seconds to move from cover to cover to try to move and get out of there as he reloaded.”
Bleck captured video of the chaos amid the Route 91 country music festival as gunshots rang out. His footage from inside the VIP tent has been widely circulated among national media outlets.
Paddock is dead, police say, from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
