Las Vegas morning update for Thursday, October 12th — VIDEO

Here are your Thursday morning headlines:

1. “Do Not Disturb” signs are getting another look by Las Vegas hotel staff following last week’s deadly shooting. The shooter did not have housekeeping staff visit his room for a good part of his stay at Mandalay Bay, but there is no industrywide standard on how long staff should wait before contacting a guest. It’s unclear whether a check by hotel staff could have prevented the massacre.

2. A maintenance worker at Mandalay Bay helped police find the shooter’s room. Stephen Schuck was a floor above the shooter and was checking on a fire door that wouldn’t open. Schuck took cover as bullets came down the hallway. You can listen to the audio of the exchange on

3. A woman shot in the head at the Route 91 Harvest festival is fighting the odds. Tina Frost, a 27-year-old from Maryland, is in a coma after a bullet entered her right eye and damaged her brain. The extent of the damage remains unclear but doctors say they are optimistic about her progress.
