Mandalay Bay hotel officials said Thursday the Las Vegas gunman wounded a security guard in a hotel hallway within 40 seconds of firing into the crowd at a music festival, disputing a police timeline that put six minutes from the time the guard was shot and when Stephen Paddock committed the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

Mandalay Bay hotel officials didn't notify police about a shooting in a hallway inside the high-rise until after Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowd at a country music festival outside, a federal official told The Associated Press on Thursday.
The disclosure means there may have been a delay of some six minutes in summoning police to the scene of what became the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
The official was briefed by law enforcement but wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The hotel needs to get sued so they’ll get their timeline “correct”. Next week it will be “gunman ate dinner after shooting guard”.
The police timeline STINKS!!
MGM, Mandy Bay’s owner, is getting sued.
Why go after the millionare perps estate when you can sue the billion dollar Casino? /S
Seems like the number one priority of law enforcement and the hotel at this point is to blame each other.
Any pause was only to change positions, guns or targets. There was no 6 minute pause...
Early on, the hotel said many of their time checks were not synced.
Never understood the claimed 200 rd burst into the door/hallway.
There is no such thing as a 200 rd mag/drum
This sounded odd because the fire door Paddock secured shut with a plate and screws was the next door from his room, not a few doors down.
However, a comment from a guest on a travel website that was reposted to Reddit said Mandalay Bay does indeed have an alarm that goes off if a hotel room door is open for a few minutes:
As Security explained to me when my statement was taken, they (Security) have the only master keys in the house. If the door was ajar for more than 3 to 5 minutes, they would have been alerted through a system called Hot Sauce prompting a response. This alarm is audible so I would have heard it as well since I was up for an hour after I returned. There are no cameras in the hotel hallways as it is an invasion of privacy according to Security. If you must, deadbolt your door, put your valuables in the safe, or stuff the cash under your mattress. My experience seems like an inside job since there is no other explanation on how my suite could have been breached.
(Also, numerous complaints of theft, suspicion falling on hotel employees. See https://www.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/comments/75jsh4/what_is_mandalay_bay_hotel_like_from_their_guests/)
So maybe Campos was alerted to an open hotel door somewhere on that corridor as was first said, and then heard drilling and as he moved toward Paddock's end of the corridor Paddock fired at him through the door, hitting him on the front right thigh, and Campos immediately hopped into a recessed door shielding himself, until he saw the maintenance guy Schuck.
So that leaves the question, how did the hotel know the fire door next to Paddock was screwed shut? Schuck said he was told to check out a stuck fire door and came down from another wing on a higher floor to do so.
I don’t know what to believe.
How many shooters have shot up a hotel room, then turned their weapons on a concert? Sounds like a rare event to me.
Why was the guard shot before the concert goers? This makes no sense.
This sounds like some attorneys are grooming the newsfeed to influence settlements.
As mentioned upthread the 6 min gap makes no sense
Isnt Soros tied to this hotel somehow?
Paddock definitely was not a pro. A pro would have baited Campos in and shot him dead inside his room and then kept on doing his work.
Shooting through the door makes no sense at all to me. This is ridiculous. Way to alert everyone around. It does not add up.
Now Paddock was totally bent out of shape...went to the window.....kept on firing....pauses was looking at his camera stream while grabbing another clip...Once he saw a group coming at him.....he knew he was done and shot himself.
We were lucky he took this out.
And at the risk of being called a tin hatter, I thought when I first heard the audio of the shooting that it sounded like an M-60 firing.... and after listening several times, it still sounds like one to me.
I’ll just mention this as a possibility: given the description of brazen thefts pointing to hotel staff in the comments by guests, perhaps Campos and maybe Schuck as well are part of a ring of hotel staff that steals from hotel rooms. One guy notices when guests have left the room, and uses his master key to slip in and have a quick look for obvious valuables, while someone else acts as lookout.
This might explain why the story has shifted so much as to what Campos was doing and why the low profile and no interviews. We didn’t even know about the existence of the maintenance guy for a week.
HOW MANY RIFLES ARE NECESSARY FOR ONE MAN TO COMMIT A MASSACRE FROM A HOTEL WINDOW IN 10 MINUTES?:
In a world of LIES, DECEIT, LEFTIST MEDIA PROPAGANDA, FALSE FLAGS, BLACK OPS and METICULOUSLY PLANNED DEEP STATE PLOTS, the answer is apparently 'e'.
Are they sure they have it right this time?
