In the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, the owners of the Mandalay Bay Resort and casino are now trying to determine what will become of it's 32nd floor.

About two weeks ago Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd of people at a music festival from his room in the Mandalay Bay after breaking out the windows with a hammer. Now casino owners are wondering what to do with the room and the entire floor.

A public relations firm that specializes in crisis say this problem has faced business owners all across the country from a community center in San Bernardino to a nightclub in Orlando. They say in the case of Mandalay Bay it's especially difficult because Vegas is a city where people go to forget their problems and spend their money. But they also want to avoid becoming a destination for crowds of people fascinated by the tragedy.

Experts call the hotel a victim as well and say the best suggestion might be to seal off the floor and put a memorial to the victims in another area of the hotel.
