SALT LAKE CITY — Karen Larsen, her sister and a friend were enjoying a Jason Aldean concert Sunday night when they heard popping sounds.
Larsen, 59, from Clinton, Utah, her sister from Murray and friend from St. George were about 20 yards from the stage, according to a report from KSL News.
“It sounded like a string of fireworks going off,” Larsen said. “Everybody kind of looked around and said, ‘It’s just fireworks.'”
She said the concert continued but people started realizing it was not fireworks.
“Everybody just hit the ground,” she said. “As as we did, we saw bullets hitting the ground like 10 feet away from us, like kicking up dust. … Everybody said, ‘Just get down, get down.’ We did.”
She said the shooting stopped for a time but then resumed.
“They kept telling us to stay down but it was too scary. You just wanted to run away. So we got up and ran.”
