A Los Angeles woman, who was a victim in the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival mass shooting, is suing MGM, after she says the resort made it easy for shooter Stephen Paddock to stock pile the weapons used in the massacre.

According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, Alexandra Wucetich who survived the shooting, says she suffers from physical injuries and extreme emotional distress following the shooting.

In the docs, she claims she "was in close proximity to the stage and the center of the shooting zone. People started to run and flee as firing started but (she) was trapped in the shooting zone and unable to escape or leave the scene."

She continues, "Not until the shooting stopped, and (she) was altered by a non-uniformed police officer to run, could she escaped the scene.

The victim blames the Mandalay Bay, (owned by MGM) for allowing the shooter to stock pile weapons and ammunition in his room.

She claims, in the lawsuit, because Paddock was a "high-stakes gambler" at the hotel, and had access to the service elevator, is the reason he was able to go unnoticed.

Also, she pointed out, because of his casino connections he was able to keep the "Do Not Disturb" sign on his room and even hide cameras in the hallway to track security.

Wucetich is also suing Live Nation and the estate of Stephen Paddock.

October 1, 2017, Paddock opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival. He killed 58 people and wounded 422. He fired from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and casino.
