Former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman encouraged everyone to keep moving forward with their lives in the wake of tragic Las Vegas shooting, saying that he is "smiling" because the gunman is "in eternal damnation."

"I'm smiling about this guy right now because I know he's rotting in hell," Goodman said during an interview on CNN Saturday morning.

He went on to encourage everyone to continue to live as they did before, saying that every morning his wife says "carpe diem" to him as he leaves the house for work, and he responds by saying "hashtag YOLO." YOLO is an acronym for "you only live once."

"We are mourning, we are heartsick, but unfortunately we can't bring these souls back," Goodman added. Goodman served as mayor of Las Vegas from 1999 to 2011. His wife, Carolyn Goodman, has served as mayor ever since.

The gunman, Stephen Paddock, opened fire Sunday night on a country music concert in Las Vegas killing at least 58 concert-goers and injuring nearly 500 more people. Authorities found him dead in his hotel room following the shooting.
