3 Years After Las Vegas Harvest Festival Shooting- Victims Get Compensated


Las Vegas Marks Second Anniversary Since Deadliest Mass Shooting In U.S. History

Las Vegas Marks Second Anniversary Since Deadliest Mass Shooting In U.S. History

More than 4000 victims of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017, will receive a portion of $800 million from a class action settlement.

The MGM Corporation who owns Mandalay Bay, the hotel where the shooter was located, will pay $429 million from their corporate funds. The rest will be paid by the company's liability insurance. 

58 people died in the attack and thousands of others were injured when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowd attending the country music festival. Paddock was found dead in a hotel room from self-inflicted gunshot wounds.

I can't believe it's been 3 years... it still haunts me to this day. Prayers for the survivors and the families and friends of those who died so senselessly.
