Casino company MGM Resorts International and its insurers will pay $800 million in payouts to more than 4,400 victims and their relatives of the deadliest mass shooting committed by an individual in U.S. history, according to a settlement approved by a Nevada court on Wednesday (Sept. 30).
The settlement arrived just before the third anniversary of the tragedy. On Oct. 1, 2017, a gunman on the 32nd floor of the MGM-owned Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas opened fire on a crowd attending the nearby outdoor Route 91 Harvest country music festival, killing 58 people and injuring more than 850.
MGM Resorts, which also owns the concert venue where the festival was held, acknowledged no liability in the settlement. It will pay $49 million, while its insurance companies will pay the remaining $751 million.
