Attorney for Vegas victims speaks out about ‘not being allowed in shooter’s room’

Americans are having a hard enough time facing the harsh realities of the growing number of mass shootings in the country without the added perplexities of potential conspiracies at play.

But that’s what comes to mind when an attorney representing some of the victims of the Las Vegas massacre said the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino has not allowed her to gain entry into the shooter’s hotel room.

Perched on the 32nd floor of the hotel, the gunman opened fire on concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival below, killing at least 58 people and injuring well over 500 more.

Attorney Catherine Lombardo appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Live” on Friday to say she has gotten “nothing but resistance” from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the parent company of Mandalay Bay.

Resistance that included not allowing access to the 32nd floor room.

“We’re not getting cooperation from MGM, I wish we were,” Lombardo said. “And so, unfortunately, now we have to go back into court next week, perhaps the first week in December, to ask a judge to sign an order to allow us into the shooter’s room.”

The attorney said they’re also seeking to inspect elevator banks that lead up to rooms, as Mandalay Bay reportedly beefed up security at the casino, placing round-the-clock guard at elevators, according to The Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Host Tucker Carlson asked the attorney if she was knew whether the FBI had the killer in its sights, prompting her to say the bureau has gone “radio silent” about their own investigation of the shooting.
