The behavior of the man police say shot and killed 58 people in Las Vegas would have prompted a security probe before the massacre had he been staying again at Steve Wynn’s hotel, the billionaire casino magnate said Sunday.

“The scenario that we’re aware of would have indicated that he didn’t let anyone in the room for two or three days,” the chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts Ltd. said on “Fox News Sunday.” “That would have triggered a whole bunch of alarms here, and we would have -- on behalf of the guests, of course -- investigated for safety.” An inquiry begins when a guest has a “do not disturb” marker on their room for more than 12 hours, he said.
