Ariana Grande — whose own concert was the target of a deadly terrorist attack earlier this year — says people should label the Las Vegas mass shooting at a country music festival as “terrorism.”

The 24-year-old “Dangerous Woman” singer tweeted to her more than 53 million followers on Monday:

Grande’s message came a day after police say suspect Stephen Paddock unleashed a barrage of gunfire on concertgoers at a Las Vegas country music festival, killing at least 58. Paddock was later found dead in his hotel room.

Asked at Monday’s press briefing if President Trump considered the mass shooting an act of domestic terrorism, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders replied, “We’re still in a fact-finding mission. This is an ongoing investigation and it would be premature to weigh in on something like that before we have any more facts.”

Twenty-two people were killed at Grande’s concert in Manchester, England, in May after an attacker detonated an improvised explosive device.
