New Information Changes Timeline of Las Vegas Shooting

New Information Changes Timeline of Las Vegas Shooting

But today, authorities revealed Paddock actually shot Campos before the attack began.

On Monday, Mr Lombardo said security guard Jesus Campos was in a hallway of the Mandalay Bay hotel responding to a report of an open door when he heard drilling from the room of 64-year-old Paddock.

"What we have learned is Mr. Campos was encountered by the suspect prior to his shooting to the outside world", Lombardo said.

Joe Lombardo, the Clark County sheriff, said last...

But on Monday, the timeline changed. The security guard was shot in the leg as he patrolled the 32nd floor to check on an open door.

Heal said that if police had known immediately that a guard had been shot, they would have rushed the room while the gunman was still firing.

So two issues here. Second, the hotel apparently didn't notify police immediately that one of their security guards had been shot. Vegas police say they are still unsure of exactly what caused Paddock, who killed himself before the SWAT team entered the room, to stop shooting at the crowd.

Las Vegas police officers have recalled the "deadly game of hide and seek" they faced before storming gunman Stephen Paddock's hotel room. They then went to the floor above and encountered Campos. However, "it would be nearly another hour, however, until officers would break into Paddock's room".

The personal effects being recovered were strewn across the massive grassy concert venue where country music fans attended the Route 91 Harvest festival have become sentimental memories of loved ones for some and haunting reminders of the night of terror for others. As it wound down, officers were clearing hotel occupants from the 32nd floor.

"You really don't understand, until you see rows of personal belongings left behind" by those who fled the scene, the magnitude of the event, Lombardo said poignantly.
