Dan Bilzerian — famous on Instagram for his lavish lifestyle and hard partying — was among those in the crowd when shots were fired at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, and he documented the aftermath on social media.

In the video, Bilzerian can be seen running away from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino after the shooting took place. “Holy f***, this girl just got shot in the f***ing head,” Bilzerian said while still fleeing the scene. “This is so f***ing crazy.”

Bilzerian, who was backstage at the show when the shooting started, told PEOPLE, “It sounded like firecrackers, which is what it sounds like when supersonic bullets are flying over your head.”

The next video showed Bilzerian in his car heading home. He said he planned to get a gun and go back to the scene, seemingly to try and help.

“Saw a girl get shot in the face right next to me …  her brains f***ing hanging out. Stupid ass me didn’t bring a gun,” he said while driving.

Bilzerian went back to the Mandalay Bay for a short time before heading home.

According to police, more than 50 were killed and 500 injured when a gunman opened fire on the crowd at a country music festival in Las Vegas. The alleged shooter is dead from what is believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
