CBS affiliate KLAS-TV reports that a statement released by MGM Resorts International says the interactions between Paddock and Mandalay Bay employees, which included a room service delivery and a call with housekeeping on the day of the shooting, were “normal in nature.”

(LAS VEGAS) — The parent company of the Las Vegas hotel-casino where a gunman opened fire Oct. 1, causing the deadliest mass shooting in recent U.S. history, says hotel staff had more than 10 interactions with Stephen Paddock in the three days leading up to the massacre.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that a statement released by MGM Resorts International says the interactions between Paddock and Mandalay Bay employees, which included a room service delivery and a call with housekeeping on the day of the shooting, were “normal in nature.”
Police say Paddock shot at attendees of the Route 91 Harvest country music festival from the broken windows of his 32nd-floor suite that night, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds.
The 64-year-old Paddock killed himself just before authorities stormed his room.
University Hospital staff reflect on Sutherland Springs mass shooting
Surgeons Dr. Lillian Liao (left), Pediatric Trauma and Burn Program director at University Hospital in San Antonio, and Dr. Ronald M. Stewart, Chair of the Department of Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio; Chair of the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma, attended to patients shot at the First Baptist Church. When the alert came in, they knew right away it was a church shooting. Liao said the fact it was a church helped her make the connection that there would be injured children they would need to treat.
Sunrise Hospital’s emergency room was already full at about 10pm on 1 October when a police officer dropping off an accident victim received a call on his radio announcing: “Shots fired.”
Doctor Kevin Menes and nurse Rhonda Davis looked up from their charts. “Is this for real?” Menes asked. A series of gunshots crackled through the officer’s radio in automatic bursts. It sounded like a combat zone. As he ran out, the officer said, “That’s the Route 91 concert.”
Immediately, Menes realized there would be hundreds if not thousands of victims, and Sunrise – Las Vegas’s largest trauma center and the hospital nearest to the site of the country music festival – would probably receive the most.
He and Davis started to prepare. Menes contacted house supervisor Kat Comanescu, who then summoned all available nurses to the ER to help move or discharge patients.
