MGM Resorts released more than an hour of security footage of Oct. 1 gunman Stephen Paddock. In the Mandalay Bay videos released to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, gunman Stephen Paddock appears calm and collected as he begins executing the setup for the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Mandalay Bay hotel staff had more than 10 interactions with Stephen Paddock in the days leading up to his Oct. 1 massacre of 58 people on the Strip, MGM Resorts International said Friday.
Many casino hosts would have known the Mandalay Bay gunman because of his high-roller level of play.
Stephen Paddock’s casino game of choice — video poker — was a perfect means to win money in a way that he could get complimentary rooms, like the Mandalay Bay suite where he died Sunday night, without raising suspicion.
