On Sunday (Oct. 1) night in Las Vegas, a gunman opened fire on a country music festival from a 32nd floor hotel room in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, killing more than more 50 people and injuring hundreds more. Since then the hotel has released a statement on Twitter.
MGM Resorts, which owns Mandalay Bay and 12 other resorts on the Las Vegas Strip, said, "Our thoughts & prayers are with the victims of last night's tragic events. We’re grateful for the immediate actions of our first responders." An image containing a longer statement accompanies the tweet. Read it below.
The shooting took place during Jason Aldean's set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. It is the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
