Examining changes to Metro's timeline for shooting

Examining changes to Metro's timeline for shooting”

Shortly after investigators revised the timeline of the October 1 mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, the Los Angeles Times reported that even before gunman Stephen Paddock began his deadly assault on the 22,000 fans from his 32nd floor room, a wounded Mandalay Bay Hotel security guard called hotel officials to warn them about a gunman.

A few minutes later, Paddock began a 10-minute killing spree. "We can not be certain about the most recent timeline that has been communicated publicly, and we believe what is now being expressed may not be accurate".

As previously reported, the hotel sent its own armed security team to the 32nd floor after the shooting rampage had ended, with that contingent arriving around the same time as the Las Vegas Police, who were on the floor around 10:17 p.m., two minutes after Paddock had stopped shooting; Paddock was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound when a SWAT team breached the door of his hotel room almost an hour later. Six minutes later, Paddock began firing into the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, authorities said.

Officers reached the 32nd floor at 10:17 p.m., according to Lombardo's timeline.

The security guard, Jesus Campos, was struck in the leg as the gunman, from behind his door, shot into the hallway on the 32nd floor.

Feinberg said that after an Orlando, Fla., mass shooting that killed 49 people a year ago, several collection funds pooled their donations, and that he expects the Las Vegas funds to do the same.

"This individual purposely hid his actions leading up to this event and it is hard for us to find the answers to those actions", Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Monday, conceding he's frustrated.

"I would not make that assumption", Lombardo said. "I want to go back to work". Investigators have found 200 incidents of Paddock moving through the city, and at no time was he with anyone else, Lombardo said. Investigators are sifting through every piece of Paddock's life from birth to death, Lombardo has said. By Monday they had repeatedly searched his homes and interviewed his brother, girlfriend and others he's done business with. Lombardo said police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, including behavioral profilers, still haven't found a particular event in Paddock's life that might have triggered the shooting.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that investigators have sought information from Paddock's entire "family tree" and "things you would expect to find, we have not found".

"He may even find some solace knowing that, 'I've left so few footprints, they're going to have a helluva time figuring out who I am.' And that, in his challenged mind, might bring him a bad level of satisfaction", he said.

"I understand why people are frustrated with this because we are as well", McMahill told KNPR.

"We are still speaking with Ms. Danley about the suspect's movement, gun purchases, and anything else we need to know about him and how he planned his assault - and who he came in contact with during the planning the phase", the sheriff said.
