LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A California college student is leading a lawsuit against MGM Resorts International and others after she was injured in the 1 October shooting.

Paige Gasper, a student at Sonoma State University, filed a lawsuit against MGM Resorts International, Mandalay Corp., Estate of Steven Paddock and liability claims against Slide Fire, the manufacturer of the bump stock device. 

Gasper sustained life-threatening injuries in the shooting that night, according to a representative of a Texas law firm handling the case, with shattered ribs and a lacerated liver due to a gunshot.

The lawsuit is claiming liability against the parties mentioned, as stated in a release, with a press conference Wednesday to focus on a movement for change - making places safer and holding those responsible for failing to protect the innocent.

Steven Paddock opened fire towards concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest festival on Oct. 1; killing 59 while injuring 489 people.

Previously, an attorney representing families affected by the Strip shooting said he is getting ready to file a lawsuit involving the shooter, MGM, and music festival organizers.
