MGM Resorts International’s plans to build a community center on concert grounds targeted by a gunman nearly two years ago drew praise from some, but left others chagrined by a move to use the site for a temporary parking lot.
The Mandalay Bay digital sign went dark for about four minutes around 10 p.m. on October 1, 2018 and came back to display “#VegasStronger” for at least 30 minutes. Some Las Vegas shooting survivors expected more, however.
Mandalay Bay President Chuck Bowling says, “For every bad story you heard there are three stories about the humanity of Las Vegas.”
An increased number of security guards stood by the elevator bank Monday.
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.
Contributions from the Southern Nevada gaming, tourism and entertainment industry accounted for almost 40 percent of the $31.4 million collected by the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund, organizers of the fund said Friday.
MGM Resorts and the Metropolitan Police Department have confirmed discussions for a possible SWAT building at the site of the Las Vegas Strip shooting.
Mandalay Bay had closed a few floors starting in late November amid a guest slowdown caused by the combination of the holiday season and fallout from the Oct. 1 mass shooting at a nearby music festival. A lone gunman shot at concertgoers from a suite on the Strip hotel’s 32nd floor.
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.
While analysts who cover MGM Resorts International are reluctant to talk about the company’s financial prospects two months after the 1 October massacre, they’re collectively saying MGM stock would be a good addition to a portfolio.
