Las Vegas Shooting: Massacre Survivor Files Lawsuit:- According to media reports, a lawsuit has been filed by a California student injured in the Las Vegas massacre. The lawsuit has been filed against a hotel, concert promoter and bump stock manufacturers. The massacre survivor claimed that they were all responsible in the mass shooting that claimed 59 lives.
The claims against MGM Resorts International raise more questions about a timeline that has changed numerous times and, according to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, could change again. The MGM resorts owns both Mandalay Bay and the concert venue that hosted the festival on October 1.

The suit filed by the survivor, Paige Gasper (21) on Wednesday, also questions why the gunman Stephen Paddock’s behavior was unnoticed by the hotel staff in several instances. The MGM was accused of failing to respond in a timely manner to the shooting of Mandalay Bay security officer Jesus Campos. To check on an alert from another guest room, Mr. Campos who had gone to the 32nd floor, was shot six minutes prior to the massacre beginning.

However, there is plenty of room for blame, but they insisted that their client’s lawsuit was not about a payday, feels the Gasper’s legal team. Rather, it was about improving security and protocols at hotels and other venues.
“If allowed, evil will find a way to hurt and destroy,” said Gasper’s mother, Heather Selken. “This can no longer be allowed.” According to her complaint, Gasper was shot in the right armpit, when bullets fired from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay began ripping through the crowd. The bullet went through breast tissue, shattered a rib, lacerated her liver and then exited her body.

In the suit, also names was Live Nation, the festival promoter. It was alleged that they failed to “build and mark” adequate emergency exits and train its employees how to respond in an emergency. “There was no plan in place for an emergency evacuation, and no announcer took over the sound system to provide instructions,” a lawyer told a leading news channel.
No police departments or city officials were named in the suit because they “did the very best they could possibly do”, added Gasper. At the Route 91 Harvest Festival from his room the gunman Paddock shot numerous rounds into the crowd. For about nine to eleven minutes, he continued firing.
From a self-inflicted gun shot wound, the retired accountant was found dead.
