Actor Dan Bilzerian shared footage on social media while he was caught up in the shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival on Sunday night.

More than 50 people were killed and over 400 injured when a shooter opened fire on the audience of the outdoor Route 91 Harvest Festival from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino while country singer Jason Aldean was performing.

The "Lone Survivor" star, who had earlier filmed himself watching Jake Owen perform from backstage, shared footage on his Instagram Stories showing himself running across grass as shots could be heard in the background.

"Holy f**k this girl just got shot in the f**king head, this is so f**king crazy," he said as he was running.

In the next clip, which is completely dark, he can be heard saying, "So, I had to go grab a gun, I'm f**king heading back ... so crazy, some kinda mass shooting, (shooter has) got a heavy caliber weapon for sure. I saw a girl get shot in the face right next to me, her brains f**king hanging out, stupid a*s me didn't bring a gun."

The professional poker player again filmed himself walking along a street and flashing lights from stationary emergency vehicles could be seen in the background, and he told fans he was heading back to the scene but didn't think there was much he could do as police had caught the suspect.

He finished the video series from his car, telling viewers, "I'm heading home for all you people texting and calling and everything. I'm fine. Pretty **ked up night."

The suspect was killed by police officers.
