Poker player Dan Bilzerian has shared a shocking Snapchat video of himself running away from the shooting in Las Vegas, saying that he had just seen a girl get “shot in the head” after a gunman opened fire at the Mandalay Hotel.

The 36-year-old Instagram celebrity was at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival when it was targeted by at least one shooter, with gunshots being heard in the background of his video.

The clip shows Dan running to safety as he says: “Holy f*ck, this girl just got shot in the f*cking head”, adding that it was “so f*cking crazy” before the recording cut out.

Dan soon updated his concerned fans on Instagram Stories, with the incredibly vocal ‘pro gun’ activist claiming that he’d gone to get his own weapon and planned to return to the Las Vegas strip.

He tells his followers in the video: “So I had to go grab a gun, I’m f*cking heading back.



“It’s f*cking so crazy, some kind of mass shooting. F*cking guy with a heavy-calibre weapon for sure.

“Saw a girl get f*cking shot in the face right next to me, her brains f*cking hanging out.”

Earlier in the evening, Dan had posted side-of-stage footage of performers as he enjoyed the music festival alongside the thousands of other revellers.

The shooting broke out just as Jason Aldean finished his set, with at least 50 people losing their lives in the attack and many others left injured.

Early reports say that there were “several bodies” lying on the ground around the stage, with University Medical Center spokeswoman Danita Cohen confirming that the Vegas hospital is taking in “several” people with gunshot wounds.

People are being urged to stay away from the Las Vegas strip following the incident, with it believed that the gunman is still on the loose.
