From the comments:
Supposedly every security guard in Nevada armed or not must be registered in the State in a public database and the security guard Jesus Campos, the security guard who first encountered Paddock and was shot, is not on it.
Authorities revised the timeline of mass shooter Stephen Paddock’s actions leading up to the deadliest mass shooting in American history.
Parent company of the Mandalay Bay, the hotel in which Paddock perched during the shooting, questioned the new timeline, which says Paddock shot a hotel guard minutes before the mass shooting itself.
The new account opens the possibility that the attack may have been mitigated or prevented altogether.
A day after authorities revised the timeline of events on the night of the Las Vegas mass shooting, the hotel where the gunman was staying is casting doubt on the changes.
It also opens the possibility that Paddock had something much bigger planned, and the security guard and the engineer interrupted his preparations and forced and early start, before he was ready.
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told the Las Vegas Review-Journal an autopsy of Paddock’s brain revealed no abnormalities as of Tuesday, tamping down theories that the mass killer had a disorder or brain tumor.
Supposedly there is another timeline coming on Friday.
The security guard may not have been a security guard, he may have been shot before the shooting started, or after, the shooter is a total unknown, the Casino heard there was a shooting, and didn’t call the Police for at least six minutes, because a guy shooting an assault rifle down a hallway was not that big a deal or high a priority, and the two people who know him best are claiming they had no idea anything was even the least bit off about him.
I know law enforcement doesn’t have to tell the public anything, and probably shouldn’t until they know what has happened, yet somehow this is not breeding confidence we will ever find out why this nutjob went and committed the deadliest US mass shooting in history.
Which means anything is possible, and for the next fifty years the entire episode will be an endless stream of conspiracy theories, any one of which might actually be true.
And in the back of my mind, I wonder what would have happened if you had caught a man this evil at the moment he started shooting, brought in a team of exorcists, and begun an exorcism. That is how disordered everything is.
