You could hear people screaming. It sounded like gunshots were coming from all around us, and this is before any of us knew that it was coming from above. The crowd started running. It was a bad scene.”
He continued, “There were people literally being shot. You could see blood everywhere. It was something that I wouldn’t ever want to see again or wish upon anyone else to see.”
Owen also took to Instagram to show fans what he saw from his tour bus.
