  Mandalay Bay says four armed officers were on the 32nd floor as the Las Vegas shooter attacked. Should they have acted? The owners of the hotel where Stephen Paddock fired into a concert crowd say officers immediately responded to his floor. But no one will say what they did next.Hundreds of people queue to donate blood following the mass shooting at the Route 91 music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Oct. 2, 2017.

When Tina Frost was shot and grievously wounded during the Las Vegas massacre last month, doctors were unsure when she would recover, if at all.

Los Angeles Times, other news outlets file lawsuits to obtain Las Vegas shooting records

  Los Angeles Times, other news outlets file lawsuits to obtain Las Vegas shooting records Attorneys representing a consortium of news outlets including the Los Angeles Times filed two lawsuits in Nevada on Wednesday night asking officials to turn over law enforcement records related to the Oct. 1 massacre in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead.A month after the shooting, many questions remain unanswered about why the gunman, Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nev., opened fire on a country music concert from his room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, as well as questions about how police and hotel officials responded as Paddock unleashed his attack.One of the lawsuits filed in Clark County, Nev.

Her healing process, however, has been nothing short of a miracle, said Amy Klinger, a close family friend.

"She is amazing," said Klinger, speaking on "Erin Burnett OutFront" Friday evening. It's "totally unbelievable that it's only been a month and she's made so much progress."

According to Klinger, Tina is up walking, talking and working with occupational, speech and physical therapists several times a day.

"I feel really lucky to have been one of the first people to hear her speak after she just started speaking again on Tuesday night," she said.

Her progress seems to defy the original prognosis made by a medical professional at Sunrise Hospital several days after the attack, while Tina remained in a coma.

"Unfortunately, some people may not ever recover," neurosurgeon Dr. Keith Blum said at the time. "In some of the people I would say, give it a year."

  Texas church shooting: 8 die in one family Eight of the 26 people killed in Sunday’s mass shooting came from a family as close to one another as they were to the church. Associate pastor Bryan Holcombe and his wife Karla; their son, Marc Daniel Holcombe; daughter-in-law Crystal Holcombe; and several grandchildren were killed in the gunfire during the service at Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church, about 30 miles outside San Antonio. Law enforcement officials move flowers left at the scene of a shooting at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs on Nov. 6, 2017, in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Klinger also noted that Shane, the man they credit with saving Tina's life by carrying her to a pickup truck and rushing her to the hospital, had been in touch and is closely following her recovery. Klinger said Tina's boyfriend, Austin, had earlier texted his appreciation to Shane.

A GoFundMe page for Tina, set up in the days after the shooting, has already raised more than $591,000. The original goal was $50,000.

Early last month a shooter opened fire from the window of a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip, killing 58 people and wounding more than 500 others.
