Nicole Phelps, the wife of Olympic gold medalist and Baltimore native Michael Phelps, posted on Instagram on Monday morning that the couple was safe at home during the mass shooting Sunday night at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas, which they had attended earlier in the weekend.
Michael Phelps, in an Instagram post Monday afternoon, said he and his wife were in the city Friday. On Sunday, a gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino into the crowd across the street as country singer Jason Aldean was closing out the three-day event. More than 58 people were killed and at least 500 injured.
Nicole Phelps, who is pregnant with the couple’s second child, wrote a message Monday morning paired with a photo from Friday night: “I woke to texts from friends asking if we were still in Vegas, thankfully we were home safe however my heart is heavy this morning after learning of the tragic incident that happened last night. … #prayforlasvegas"
