A Punxsutawney woman was one of those thousands of people at the Rt. 91 Music Festival in Las Vegas. She was only two rows back from the stage when the gunmen began firing from the 32nd floor of the nearby casino. "When people say it is the largest mass shooting in U.S. History, and to think you walked out of there unharmed, it is unreal." Shannon Monoskey was two rows from the stage at the country music festival in Las Vegas when she started hearing gunshots. "You're having a good time, you're enjoying the concert, it is loud music, the last possible thing you are thinking is that someone is shooting at you. So you are trying to come up with every explanation of what it could be." She thought it was fireworks or a b.b. gun. They didn't realize there was a gunman until Jason Aldean ran off of the stage. "Then you see the people behind you, bleeding and laying on the ground. Then you realize, this is gunfire. And it is coming at us." Completely expose with nowhere to hide, she said she stayed on the ground until it was safe to run. "As soon as I started to run I called my mom, cause I didn't think I was going to make it out of there alive. I wanted her to be on the phone with me if I got hit. I wanted to hear her voice." Then she said there were reports of other shooters inside her hotel, leaving her without a place to stay. She and 40 others hid in a nearby apartment for over 8 hours until it was safe to come out. "At night when I close my eyes, I can still hear the gunshots, I can hear people screaming, it's something that will affect me the rest of my life."
