The Instagram star and professional poker player Dan Bilzerian was caught up in the shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday night.

In multiple Instagram stories filmed while fleeing the scene, Bilzerian, a gun fanatic, described scenes of chaos and said he saw someone next to him get shot.

The shooting took place at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival at the Mandalay Bay casino-hotel. Police have confirmed that at least 50 people died and over 400 were injured.

Bilzerian’s Instagram story was reposted by the World Star Hip Hop account on Twitter:

“F—, this girl just got shot in the f—ing head,” Bilzerian told his 23 million followers in the first post, which was uploaded around 10 p.m. PDT. “So f—ing crazy.”

“So I had to go grab a gun. I’m f—ing headed back. It’s f—ing so crazy — some kind of mass shooting,” he said in the second video, which was broadcast about an hour later. “F—ing guy had a heavy calibre or whatever.”

“Saw a girl got f—ing shot in the face right next to me,” he said before the clip cut out.

In the third and fourth videos, Bilzerian said he was heading home, adding: “I don’t think there’s much I can do.”
