In October 2017, a gunman opened fire on a Las Vegas country music festival from the 32nd floor of MGM's Mandalay Bay resort, killing 59 people and wounding 422 more. According to lawyers for victims of the shooting, the hotel has agreed to pay between $735 and $800 million to settle several class action lawsuits.
