Al Quackenbush told City News Service that singer Jason Aldean was performing at the open-air festival when the gunfire rang out, causing a massive scramble for survival.

"We heard many shots,'' Quackenbush said. "Like 300-plus shots. I figure it was an automatic rifle. We were right there."

Orange County resident David Wolfe said on a televised broadcast that his wife and daughter were at the concert. Wolfe said he was "in absolute panic; scared to death until my wife called and said they were OK."

Brianna Taylor of Orange County said to NBC4 that she and her fiance were near the front of the stage near Aldean when the bullets began to rain.

The shaken Taylor said she first thought it was fireworks, but "seconds later, we found it was a lot more serious that,'' as she saw two people within 10 feet of her get shot.

Taylor said that she was able remove herself from the area and hide with about 200 other people in a helicopter rental company.

NBC reporter Joe Fryer said he was ordered by authorities to…
