Chris Eubank Jr who was in Las Vegas during the incident said:
“My heart goes out to all the people killed & injured in the Las Vegas attack last night. I was inside a casino on the strip when someone started shooting in August, I filmed police pursuing the shooter on my snapchat. I just can’t get my head around how these people can commit such mindless acts of terror, they truly are the definition of cowards.”
