    Travelers From Las Vegas Arrive in Connecticut

    Airline passengers arriving at Bradley Airport said they were grateful to be home after a trip turned terror in Las Vegas.

    Their terror started when a gunman opened fire into a crowd of country music fans on the Las Vegas strip on Sunday night. The mass shooting left dozens dead and hundreds injured.

    Travelers arriving on Tuesday said the images they saw are embedded in their minds and tough to get over.

    "I went to bed and woke up. I put on the news and saw how serious it was. I'm just happy I'm safe, my friends are safe," said Stefanie Devino of Watertown.

    "It was very scary there and it’s very somber. When I went back to the strip there was nobody there at all. Like a ghost town," Fred Lapinski of Oxford said.

    Passengers said their thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s and their families.
