COLUMBUS, Ohio. (WSYX/WTTE) -- Central Ohioans who survived the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history returned home at John Glenn International Airport Monday.

Adam Hall, his wife, brother, and sister-in-law were in Las Vegas Sunday night attending a Jason Aldean concert when Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowd below.

Hall, a resident of Powell, said when the gun shots started, he thought it was fireworks.

"It didn't stop and Jason Aldean ran off the stage and we took cover underneath our seats. And once the gunshots just kept coming and didn't stop whatsoever,” explained Hall.

Hall said he didn’t know anyone who was injured in the shooting. The father of two young children said he’s relying on his faith to move beyond the shooting.

"My wife reminded me today that faith can overcome fear and I'd like to think that my faith is bigger than my fear."
