Dan Bilzerian, a known internet personality and professional poker player was in attendance at the Las Vegas Country Music Festival when he heard multiple gunshots being fired. We now know those shots were a result of 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opening fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
At this time, reports show a harrowing 58 casualties and 515 injured victims. Our hearts and prayers go out to those affected by this senseless tragedy. It is beyond all comprehension that innocent lives were taken at an event intended for enjoyment, in a city known for its spirit and whimsy.
Bilzerian caught this nightmarish footage on his Snapchat that has since been shared across the internet...

The first clip shows a clearly frenzied Bilzerian fleeing the scene after having witnessed a female being shot in the head. The second clip shows Dan making his way back to the festival, after retrieving his own personal weapon.
While Bilzerian does have Navy SEAL training by the time he reached the event he no longer had use to fire his own gun. However, footage shows that he was working alongside authorities in some capacity.
If you are looking for a missing loved one, authorities have urged people to please call 1-866-535-5654. There is also a crisis response page on Facebook.
