Local News

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 News) – Karen Larsen returned to Utah Monday evening after surviving the deadly concert shooting in Las Vegas.

“We were just dancing and singing and having a good time,” said Larsen, as she recounted what happened.

“And all of a sudden — you just heard pop-pop-pop-pop-pop.”

“Some guy started yelling, get down! Get down! Get down! and I was kind of at the bottom of the pile, and I think that’s how I got the dirt on me.”

“It was just bullets and bullets — just thousands. And we could hear people screaming,” said Larsen.

And so she ran the two or so blocks to her hotel.

“It was just pandemonium,” said Larsen.

Bullets were flying through the air.

“You could not tell where the shots were coming from,” she said.

Larsen arrived to the hotel. She met others, like her, who were grateful to be alive. Some were injured from the shooting.

“He had a little hole right there on his cheek, and he had a whole bunch of blood on him,” said Larsen.

Then, from her hotel room, she posted this video to Facebook:

“You probably can’t see me, but we are in the bathroom of our hotel. And there was someone shooting at us from the concert. And there was bloody people and there was dead people. And we’re all okay but we’re scared,” said Larsen on Facebook Live.

On Monday night, Larsen returned home safely by plane from Las Vegas.

“It feels really good, I just want to go home to my husband and my animals, and my kids and just–be home.”
