LAS VEGAS — Country music star Jason Aldean took to social media early Monday to say he and his crew are safe after a gunman killed more than 20 people at an outdoor concert Sunday.

Aldean was in the middle of his performance when the bullets rained down on the crowd. He posted on Instagram hours later, calling the shooting ‘‘beyond horrific.’’

Las Vegas authorities say more than 100 people are wounded in the attack.

Clark County’s sheriff said officers confronted the suspect on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, which is across the street from where the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival took place. The shooter is dead, police said.
