In an Instagram post Monday morning, Edmonds says that his daughter Hayley was "actually running for her life" while the shooting took place at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. "Thank god she is ok," he writes. "Some friends not accounted for yet."
My little girl survived the scariest movement imaginable in Vegas last night. Actually running for her life. We got that phone in the middle of the night you don’t want to get as a parent. Thank god she is ok. Some friends not accounted for yet. Pray for the people in Vegas our family and friends included. 🙏🙏🙏 picture taken earlier that day.
Las Vegas police said during a press conference Monday morning that 58 people have been killed and more than 500 people were injured in the attack. The gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, fired from the 32nd floor of the Mandelay Bay Hotel into a crowd of people watching a performance by country singer Jason Aldean.
The mass shooting is the deadliest in United States history.
