A Texas woman injured in the Las Vegas mass shooting has filed the first lawsuit against MGM Resorts International and is being represented by Houston law firms. 
Paige Gasper, 21, has filed a lawsuit against multiple companies related to the shooting outside of MGM including Mandalay Corporation, Live Nation Entertainment and Slide Fire Solutions of Moran Texas. Gasper is from Texas and attends school at Sonoma State, according to a GoFundMe page
NO WARNING: Brother of accused Las Vegas shooter says there was 'no indication of anything'  
Gasper is one of 489 people who were shot by gunman Stephen Paddock on Oct. 1. He attacked a concert crowd from a suite in Mandalay, killing 58 people. 
Court documents filed in Clark County District Court on Tuesday say she was struck by one of Paddock's bullets. Documents claim she was trampled by a crowd before someone helped her take cover from the shooting. Gasper was transported to the hospital by a good Samaritan. 
Gasper alleges the bullet entered her right underarm and through her right breast tissue, shattering ribs and lacerating her liver before exiting her right side. 
The Pinkerton Law Firm and Hunt and Tuegal are two Houston-based law firms that are representing Gasper. Chad Pinkerton told Chron.com that Gasper is seeking $15,000 in damages, the minimum amount that a plaintiff can sue for in Nevada.

Pinkerton claims hotel staff failed to stop Paddock from bringing numerous guns and rounds of ammunition into Mandalay Bay. 
"Mandalay bay had the opportunity to make this safe and didn't do so," Pinkerton said. "This man brought in 10 suitcases of weapons and over 500 rounds. He built a fortress and barricaded himself in his room and went unnoticed." 
Pinkerton added Live Nation failed to provide an accessible exit for concertgoers in case of an emergency. 
Slide Fire Solutions, a company that builds bump stocks, is also mentioned in the lawsuit. The company is accused of "Negligently advertising and/or promoting the bump stock devices as an inexpensive device that could be used to circumvent federal laws prohibiting fully automatic weapons."  The lawsuit states the company may have sold one or more bump stocks to Paddock and were used in the shooting.
