Specifics were reported this week six months after a man was shot twice in the groin during an armed robbery at Maryland’s MGM National Harbor casino-hotel. He had won $60,000 earlier at a blackjack table.
Bandits broke into the hotel room of Nathaniel Nagbe of Gaithersburg, Md. The robbers pinned him to the floor and demanded he provides the combination for the safe in the room.
He gave them the number. But the pair could not open the safe.
Nagbe escaped and ran only as far as the hallway. But once there, he was shot twice in the groin and the lower abdomen. A woman who the victim was expecting accompanied the two robbers.
Pain Was Unbearable
Nagbe managed to get down 17 stories on the stairway after the shooting.
I was in so much pain, but it was like my body was preparing myself for death, because I knew no one was coming to help me,” Nagbe recalled.
When Nagbe eventually reached the hotel’s valet, he assisted the wounded man to telephone for help. Later, Nagbe underwent multiple surgeries, the report said. But he still is suffering from chronic injuries.
Nagbe further remembered that one robber had an AR-15 rifle. The other possibly had a Glock pistol.
“I won $60,000 that day. I showed it off to a few of my friends. I invited a few people there,” Nagbe told WUSA.
It was unclear if the bandits stole any of the money. It appeared some jewelry was stolen from Nagbe.
I loved MGM so much, but it’s like, when this happened, it was like, … how could you do this to me?” Nagbe further told the TV station. “How could you let someone just come to my room? You see everyone on camera.”
In a statement from MGM National Harbor, the casino told WUSA it is “aware of this incident and is fully cooperating with the proper Prince George’s County authorities. The safety of our guests is our highest priority, and our security team works closely with law enforcement and security experts to provide a safe environment.”
Casino.org reached out to MGM Resorts International for additional comment on Wednesday. A spokeswoman said the company declined to comment.
Two Suspects Arrested, One Remains At Large
Alicia McCoy, 25, of Washington, DC, and Barry Reid, 20, of Temple Hills, Md. were both charged with attempted first-degree murder and several related charges, WUSA said.
The third suspect is still on the loose, the report adds. Authorities are offering a reward in the case.

The real story here is the cover up from the MGM, County and PG Police. Why did PG Police Twitter/Facebook News not report this in August 2020, when they reported all other shootings and ask for public support (check PGPDNews)? Why is there no news on this INSANE incident for 6 months? Please journalists, keep digging... it's clear a cover up occurred as only 6 months before this a near similar incident happened. Why is it not reported? Why is the MGM not penalized?
its not mgm's fault the trick you invited over set your punk ass up. Next time you win 60k or even 1k stfu and keep that shyt to yourself.. duhhhh
And nothing ever seems to be enough for MGM to fix their security while most major media are silent. They won't even tell anyone I've been in court over Route91 desperate from everyone else because I have evidence they all covered up. Disgraceful.
