MGM Suing More Than 1,000 Victims Of Las Vegas Shooting
By Tom Knighton
The Las Vegas shooting was horrific. It was the worst mass shooting in American history. With 58 people killed and a mindboggling 851 injured, though “only” 451 were shot, it was a nightmare scenario for everyone involved.
Almost a year later, we’re still trying to understand just what happened that night and what motivated the killer.
Today, we get to understand why MGM, the company that owned the hotel the shooter fired from, is looking to sue 1,000 or so victims of that horrific night.
MGM Resorts International has filed federal lawsuits against more than 1,000 victims and relatives of last October’s shooting rampage in Las Vegas in a bid to squelch liability claims against the hotel-casino giant.
MGM owns the Mandalay Bay resort, where shooter [REDACTED] opened fire Oct. 1 on a crowd of thousands of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. The gunman killed 58 people and wounded more than 500 others. [The killer] was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. It was the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
