FILE -- Broken windows at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino after Stephen Paddock opened fire on a concert crowd from the room, in Las Vegas, Oct. 2, 2017. In late 2019, MGM Resorts International, which owns the hotel, has agreed to pay up to $800 million to settle lawsuits from victims of the October 2017 mass shooting that left 58 people dead and hundreds of others injured.

LAS VEGAS - Two years after a shooter rained gunfire on country music fans from a high-rise Las Vegas Strip hotel, MGM Resorts International has agreed to pay up to $800 million to families of the 58 people who died and hundreds of others who were injured, attorneys announced Thursday.

The out-of-court agreement will resolve lawsuits in at least 10 states seeking compensation from the hotel owner for physical and psychological injuries received in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
