They went over two fences to escape. David Becker, a photographer who was covering the concert for Getty Images, snapped a picture of Gelay and her boyfriend fleeing for their lives.

The shooting continued for over 10 minutes. It seemed to never end.

“We ran for like a mile. I was barefoot at this point. I lost my flip-flops. I ran barefoot. We were just running,” she said.

Eventually they made it to the Desert Rose Resort, a low, stucco-covered complex that sits about a mile from the festival.

“This really nice lady said, ‘You guys can come hide in here.’ There were probably 20-30 of us hiding in this woman’s apartment,” Gelay says.

A man came in with a gunshot wound in his arm. “He said he was an EMT. So he knew he was OK. He knew the bullet was lodged in his arm. I think someone made a tourniquet to tie it off.”

Even injured, the man went around the room, checking on other people, asking if they were OK.

Gelay says the shock started to set in. She was shaking all over. Then she noticed the blood on her pants.

“I started feeling to see if I was shot. I knew I had a whole bunch of adrenaline going through me and maybe I didn’t feel it. But eventually we realized it was other people’s blood,” she says. She wasn’t physically injured.

Gelay, who is getting a degree in criminal justice at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, says she feels like she’s doing OK. But things are different now.

“I can’t hear any loud noises. They freak me out,” she says., Someone recently lit firecrackers outside the car dealership where she works. “I almost started crying. My hands were shaking,” she says.

Her boyfriend went to a bar with his friends the other night, just to get out of his house and be around people again. He asked Gelay to go with him, but she says it felt overwhelming.

“I just don’t think I can be in public gatherings like that with a lot of people,” she says. “It’s hard to trust people. Do you have good intentions? Do you look suspicious? I know it’s bad to think like that, but I don’t want to put myself in that position again,” she says.
