Vegas Shooting Timeline Gets Another Update

Vegas Shooting Timeline Gets Another Update

More than a week after the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history, investigators are still stumped about what led high-stakes gambler Paddock to carry out his horrific attack.

New details released earlier this week indicate Paddock shot hotel security guard Jesus Campos six minutes before he shot at the crowd - contradicting an earlier statement that he was wounded after the mass shooting began. Authorities also said that after Paddock shot at Campos through the door of his room on the 32nd floor, the gunman didn't fire any more shots into the crowd. "It was kind of relentless". "He manually called down and he used his radio to call".

However, MGM Resorts International, owner of the Mandalay Bay, has disputed the revised timeline.

MGM Resorts International spokeswoman Debra DeShong said the company believes "what is now being expressed may not be accurate".

The sheriff changed the timeline of the shooting Monday, explaining that a security guard in the hotel's hallway responding to a report of an open door heard drilling from Paddock's room. "We believe what is now being expressed may not be accurate".

The FBI and Las Vegas police have sorted through more than a thousand leads and examined Stephen Paddock's politics, finances, any possible terrorist radicalization and his social behavior.

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. "Someone's firing a rifle on the 32nd floor down the hallway".

McMahill wouldn't talk on camera, but discussed response time by hotel security and police. But the revised timeline shows officers would have known where Paddock was before the mass shooting even started.

"There absolutely was an opportunity in that timeframe that some of this could've been mitigated", he said.

Investigators tell CBS News they visited this shooting range just outside Mesquite, Nevada, believing Paddock may have taken target practice two days before he carried out his attack in Las Vegas. "We believe he chose to take the lives he did and he had a very purposeful plan that he carried out".

But although most killers may want to take credit for their act, Paddock might have reveled in the riddle he's presented for investigators, Van Zandt said.

Rapp says it is traumatic for the victims and their families not to be sure of what happened.

The six minutes that passed between the hallway shooting and the start of the shooting into the crowd wouldn't have been enough time for officers to stop the attack, said Ron Hosko, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation assistant director who has worked on SWAT teams.

Police have said it was hard to identify the source of the bullets during the attack, and the confusion added more minutes to their lengthy response.

"In coordination with the FBI's behavioral analysis unit, a comprehensive picture is being drawn as to the suspect's mental state and now we do not believe there is one particular event in the suspect's life for us to key on", Lombardo said.

Undersheriff Kevin McMahill defended the hotel and said the encounter that night between Paddock and the security guard and maintenance man disrupted the gunman's plans.

Campos was struck in the leg by some of the approximately 200 rounds Paddock fired into the hallway. He added: "I don't think the hotel dropped the ball".
