Mandalay Bay staff had "numerous interactions with Stephen Paddock every day at the resort," the statement said, "including a room service delivery and a call with housekeeping on October 1, all of which were normal in nature."

"As a result of these interactions, there was no need to conduct a welfare check," it said.

In the aftermath of the mass shooting — the deadliest in modern US history — questions arose over how Paddock had not raised the suspicions of hotel staff. Police found 23 guns inside his suite and discovered Paddock brought "in excess of 10" suitcases to the room over several days, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Joseph Lombardo.

Since the shooting, more than 450 people have filed lawsuits against MGM Resorts; Mandalay Corp.; Live Nation Entertainment, which promoted the music festival; Slide Fire Solutions, maker of the bump stock devices Paddock used in the shooting, and the gunman’s estate. Many of the victims who have filed claims have questioned how the hotel staff didn’t notice anything unusual about Paddock’s behavior.
